In Chicago

Isla is not impressed with her new winter wardrobe
Isla and I made it to Chicago.  She was a little gem on the plane, which I am pretty certain had everything to do with the fact that we were sitting next to this guy and she was looking to impress.  I'm happy to announce she has good taste in men!  You would never in a million years have guessed that this guy is a professional UFC fighter who beats the crap out of people for a living.  He was so gentle and sweet, so thoughtful and polite.  When I first got to my seat and saw I would be sitting next to a Ryan Gossling/Ryan Reynolds look-alike, I was worried he would't be very tolerant of a lone mamma flying with her baby, but not so.  I could not have asked for a better seat mate.  He was reading "The Power of Now" and we had some great conversations during the course of our three hour flight about life, following dreams, and the law of attraction.  Despite how vastly different our lives are (he a professional athlete in Vegas, me a mama blogger on a boat) we have so much in common, almost to the point we could finish the other's thoughts.  It's a nice reminder that you truly never can judge a book by it's cover...or a person by their profession, for that matter.  It was a pleasure to meet him, and no, not just because he looks like a Calvin Klein model.

Isla and I will are here until the 20th and then we head back to the boat for a couple days before driving over to the other side of Florida for Christmas with family.  We're keeping busy so that this time without daddy flies by!

You were much luckier than I during my flight to Tampa. It's nice when you can have an unexpected great converstation; and I love that you pointed out what he was reading... that alone can tell you a lot about a person.

Safe travels,
