It’s our last night in Gig Harbor, the town we have lived in for 23 years. ¬†Good Bye.
Tomorrow we begin our nomad life – with no definitive time frame as to when we will plant our roots again. ¬†Or where.
But the truth is, the chance of our next home being in Gig Harbor is slim. ¬†We aren’t ruling it out, but for many reasons we think we will settle somewhere new when the time comes.
So tonight I insisted to my husband that we take a stroll on the waterfront. ¬†Just the two of us. ¬†No fan fare or fuss. ¬†Just a stroll to admire the historic harbor and appreciate the beauty of this community. ¬†As we walked my heart felt full as we passed many things in which I had a hand in developing.
And yet, we are not sad. ¬†We know we are doing the right thing and we are fully focused on the future and not the past. ¬†Moving on, unafraid, together. ¬†Life became so much better, when I stopped trying so hard. ¬†We are in for the ride, whatever that brings.
Local friends – I will be around (in Kitsap) off and on over the next four months, between trips to Hawaii, Idaho, Ireland/Scottland, Norway and a cross-country road trip in the fall. ¬†In late November we depart for two years. ¬†So between now and November I do hope to see many of my local friends.
To readers of this blog I have never met (and there are so many of you!),¬† thank you. ¬†Thank you for your continued support and interest in the silly things I have to say here. I’m always amazed at your response to this blog. ¬†I am sincerely looking forward to sharing our travels with you, starting tomorrow as we head to Hawaii for a month. ¬†I hope you enjoy coming along for the ride.
Life should not be spent standing still. ¬†For me, keeping it interesting and unexpected, and of course FABULOUS, is what life is about. ¬†Living everyday as if it were my last. ¬†I am buckled in, ready to go.
But one last time – farewell to my beautiful community of nearly a quarter century. ¬†You will always hold a special place in my heart.
Go! Be! Fabulous!
