Asante sana (ah-SAHN-tay SAH-nah) means "thank you very much" in Swahili and not only is it the namesake of our new boat, but it sums up the way I feel today and every day. I honestly cannot be more grateful for the blessings in my life: my family, my husband, our friends and, most of all, our incredible baby girl who enriches our lives every single day - to name a few. I am thankful that we are healthy, happy and able to live our dream. I am so humbled by the incredible gifts the Universe has bestowed upon us and continues to give us. It's amazing how, if we tap into the energy of the world, we can be guided to the exact place we are meant to be. I can't say for sure because I don't have the playbook for this game, but I feel like we are moving in the right direction, gently being pushed by forces around us. There is not a single day that goes by that I don't take mental note of the fact that I am one lucky girl. Asante sana.
It's a beautiful day here, Scott is hoping to go kitesurfing this afternoon (fingers crossed for good conditions) and later we'll be sharing a proper Turkey Day meal with our good friends Travis and Emily, along with Uncle Al and Emily's father, Nate. Happy Thanksgiving to our fellow Americans and for those of you who don't celebrate, I hope that you too have much to be thankful for!
