The comeback is always stronger than the setback.

Wow. 2020. What a whirlwind this year has been, right?

When the world shut down in March, all the worries went up. Not so much because of the virus (I am so grateful to the man upstairs for our good health), but I worried about our jobs and finances in this extremely uncertain time. We wanted to build up our savings, so we worked as much as we could which put blogging on the back burner along with a lot of other plans. I know that so many have suffered immeasurable loss, and my heart truly goes out to those. Ross and I are extremely lucky for so many reasons.

In other news, lots of cool things are coming to the blog and the Youtube channel soon! We are so excited to share whats in the works for us. New posts coming soon!

Here goes nothin’…

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.”

I’ve started a blog, you guys! After years of long-winded posts on Facebook, I finally took the advice of those who have told me, “you should start a blog!” So here I am. Typing in a little box, with literally no idea what I’m doing. I’ll give you the names of the ones you can blame later. For now, here’s a little bit about me:

Hey ya’ll! I’m Mandy. I’m a 30-something wife to the love of my life, Captain Ross. Together we live on Florida’s beautiful Treasure Coast, currently in Palm City. I have a super glamorous job at a local school district (yes, that was a joke), while Ross runs his marine service business. We are big fans of everything this area offers from beautiful beaches, to world-class fishing. Having said that, we’re also big fans on sitting on our behinds in our living room and binge watching entirely too many shows ((insert shrugging emoji)).

I can’t tell you what this blog is going to be about, but I can tell you that it will be as REAL as possible. Our life is far from perfect, but we chug along together and make the most of everything we’re handed…growing and learning with every opportunity along the way. You can expect a little from him, a little from me, and lot from our experiences together as we just try to “stay afloat.”
