Life Is Short, Make Time To Enjoy The View


When my husband and I decided to make the move from St. Louis, Mo. to St. Joseph, Mo. it took some convincing. I mean, I really had to pull out every trick I had to help him see the light.

We survived the small town, that is St. Joseph for about a year and a half. Then it was time to move again. This time to Boynton Beach, Florida. This move didn’t take as much convincing as the previous one did.  I mean, it’s the sunshine state after all.

Once we arrived it was hard to not get swept away by the amazing scenery. For one thing the beaches are amazing. I can’t get enough.


And the sunsets take your breath away.


The important thing to remember is, life is short. You only get one shot. You have to live the best life you can right now. The funny thing is had we listened to everyone that tried to talk us out of leaving home [St. Louis, Missouri] out of fear, we would’ve missed out.


I’m so glad we followed our hearts.
