Sometimes, no matter what, you just need to sit back and relax...

We have been full steam ahead for months now.  Ever since we left our jobs Scott and I have been at the boat pretty much every day - 12 hours a day.  Each day spent on the boat it seems we take two steps forward, and one step back.  This is fine, and we've learned by now that this is pretty much how it goes when it comes to boats.  However, it does wear on a psyche...just a tad.  I'm not going to lie.  Just when we think we are on the home stretch, some other 'issue' rears it's head, making progress feel like a line that keeps moving farther and farther in the distance (Latest culprit?  Our Lofrans windlass situation...I'll not bore you with details).

So today, instead of going to the boat and despite the fact that there is a laundry list of "to-do's", my amazing mother came down and helped us pack up most of our apartment (thank you mummy!!).  And then, when Scott headed to the boat to work on a few things, mom and I went and got...drum roll please... pedicures*.  Sigh...

...Because life just feels a *little* less hectic when your feet are all scrubbed up and prettied!

The lesson here?  Sometimes, no matter how chaotic it all may seem, you just need to sit back and relax.

Love,

Brittany and Scott

*I have been dying to have this done ever since my brother looked at my feet TWO weeks ago and said, "Damn Britt, you're kinda getting nasty boater feet there!"

I love having my feet rubbed! Glad you got some time to relax. Are those your feet in the picture? They look great! Even with a pedicure mine wouldn't be photo material. Nothing can help them I'm afraid.
