Bad Honest

Honesty isn't always the best policy. Sometimes it makes people feel uncomfortable.
Still, I've asked for others to be completely honest with me, especially where I have close friendships. I tell them, "just let me have it with both barrels."! I know what it feels like to hear the bad honest from others because I've found a few friends who will go deep enough to love me this way. Yes, I said LOVE me.
It sucks sometimes. Sucks BAD sometimes. But still, I'm pretty sure its what I prefer.
Along that same thinking, I offer here my "bad" honesty. It's 'bad' because it crosses the line of where life is comfortable between two (or more) people into that place where the ugliness (aka the truth!) comes to light.

Ugliness - mine, yours, ours. No favoritism here. Its only fair.

I think blogs are completely narcissistic. This one is no different.
Its for me to sound off.
Its therapy for me.
And with the wonder of the internet, I can share it.
Comments? I don't really care...Or do I....?

Starry Night

The night sky that we've observed over the past several evenings is more incredible than any I've ever seen. Beach front lighting is restricted around Cape San Blas due to sea turtle hatching, so the beaches are pitch black at night. We've been taking walks with flashlights to capture some of the sea creatures that come out in the dark.

Pictures don't do this starry sky justice....but Jeff tried to capture it anyhow.....absolutely amazing. Thanks, God!

The View

After about 16 hrs of traveling and suffering from a bit of sleep deprivation, I was ready to get out of the car. Around 10:30pm eastern time Saturday, we finally settled down for our bedtime family prayer. Last night we were thanking God for the beauty of the His creation (of which we get a seriously magnificent taste this week!). Our duplex is literally steps from the beach. We're just plain blessed to have this view for 6 days. We're lovin' every minute of it!


Its been awhile since we had family vacation.

Life is full...of home schooling, mom and dad working jobs outside the home, helping out with Grammy's affairs, and the boys' weekly 6hr Swim Team training, not to mention a few volunteer commitments.

These next few posts cover our long awaited, much needed, first family oceanfront vacation. We're thoroughly enjoying a beachfront house on the Gulf Coast area called Cape San Blas. There's only one road on and off this forgotten coast. Check it out here on Google maps!

More to come.....
