Raptor + Unicorn = Raptorcorn (the two coolest creates to ever roam the earth!)
While Raptors are vicious, masculine, badass and kinda cute,
Unicorns are quite the opposite, being graceful, feminine, magical creatures. This is me...the best of both worlds all wrapped up in one!
What once started as a personal journal is now a log of all life's adventures. Take a look back to see what once was and look below to see what is now.
Sit back, crack a beer and enjoy the journey...
I got to experience my first Florida Hurricane! They had a mandatory evacuation which I wasn't sure if people followed or not at first. I planned on staying and everyone I knew told me I was stupid. I figured living in a newer built house that was not right on the ocean would be ok. I spent time sandbagging certain areas and putting up the hurricane window coverings so I assumed everything would be ok. In the end I did end up leaving. It was a weird feeling to leave my home and cute little town thinking when I get back it may not be the same.
Everything ended up being fine (for me), but not everyone else had the same outcome. Many people had their whole houses flooded. And it wasn't just water, but with sewage as well. As everyone is cleaning up and salvaging what is still left it is sad to drive around certain areas where everyone has piled up their lives and parts of their houses in their front lawn for the garbage men to pick up.
Occasionally I look back at the pictures I have taken and am reminded of all the good times I have had. I don't know many people who get to experience as much of life as I do. I'm very grateful for the life I have created for myself. I was running on the beach a couple days ago and I was the only person in sight for miles. It was sunny and beautiful out and I had this wonderful beach all to myself. Where else does this happen? How have I gotten so lucky? While I have had my challenges lately, life has never been better. Life is goood.
