This Week I Went To The Ocean…

A lot of who I am today is because of my amazing husband. Most of who I am. Definitely where I am is because of him…

The year before we met had been a roller coaster of life lessons leading to a plane ticket and a planned exit from local life. However. Our chance meeting and instant connection changed the course of my life dramatically…

Just one month after we met I changed the course of my life to make room for another future – postponing the possibility of adventure for a different one completely. I went back to school. I succumbed to the persistent vocation of teacher. I followed the path that I had resisted for so long because it was “predictable” and discovered the great unpredictable adventure that waited there for me…

During this transformative time I met a teacher who encouraged us (her students) to write a story of our journey to the classroom. This is my story… (April 2000)

(The end of that story, but only the beginning of our story. It is the love story that I never imagined for myself, but always wished to find… The adventure of a lifetime and so much more… As giant and as powerful as the ocean… When I read this story to my children it makes me cry! I am thinking of all the love that has flooded my life since it was written and truly learning the meaning of forever…)
