marin & saus town

I was finally able to tie my shoes this morning! A friend and I went walking around the Marin Headlands and Sausalito to catch up and enjoy the beautiful weather. I also chopped the mop recently. Styling it was difficult, putting it in a bun was challenging, asking people to do it for me was down right hysterical. It was long enough to donate, so I feel good about it. I thought I was going to look like an alien recovering from cancer, but I was surprised to hear twice that I look like Charlize Theron. Huh? 

We came across Bear and Zita’s cousins, Leo and Sugar, and took a really cute family portrait. Bear also got to work and entertained some Russian tourists, and gave hugs and smiles and love to all (while Zita hid). My friend Megan saw what I didn’t… sail jellies washed up on the beach! It was a great day, and a much needed venture out into the world. I’m still very grateful that after all life has thrown at us the past couple of months that we’re still together, still healthy, and still smiling. It is without a doubt if I didn’t have Bear and Zita, and the support of all my friends and family, I would not be here.

a boat birthday

Coconut and I survived the stormageddon. Guess what: IT’S STILL RAINING. I was born and raised in Seattle, although I haven’t lived there for 13 years. I do not miss the rain one bit. The wet weather did stop for the weekend though, which happened to be my 32nd birthday.

I usually go big for my birthday but I couldn’t this year due to the whole unemployment thing. I stayed home instead and was strangely OK with that this year.

I had my own little raft up in Sausalito for their 27th Annual Lighted Boat Parade and Fireworks show. I haven’t rafted up at Sausalito before, nor have I ever seen a lighted boat parade. Some friends from Bezerkeley came and rafted up with me. We actually joined a raft up that was already in place, many whom I know but haven’t seen in a while.

It was a great time, but my favorite part by far was the trip home. It was my first solo motor-trip, as I’m still getting used to relying on the engine and docking solo. Bear Zita and I cuddled as the engine hummed along and we enjoyed the sights of the beautiful city we live in. I’m a huge fan of seeing San Fran from the water! It’s just so beautiful. It also marks three years that I’ve been living on a boat. My oh my how life has changed 🙂
