Leaving certainty behind for a new high-gloss adventure today, and amidst the champagne and excitement lies a warm nostalgia and a little sentimentality -- there are old friends to bid farewell to, and new friends to meet . . .

"A ship in harbor is safe — but that is not what ships are for."

{And life is an adventure.}

{kisses for P. for the surprise of such a lovely and thoughtful gift and for unfailingly knowing exactly what i need. . .}

"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."
