Today


At 6:45 am, Craig was offered a job!!

At 6:47 am, he accepted the job.

At 7 am, the car was packed full of sleepy heads, suitcases, and smiles and we pulled away.

By noon, we were making the last stretch across the Coronado Bay Bridge.
At 2:15, I dropped and broke our only camera.

By 2 pm we were watching our three on the beach, windblown and full of wonder.

On our walk to get bread and milk Lucy leaned her head back in the breeze, closed her eyes, and sighed, "This place is sooooo beautiful."

Craig and I keep exchanging glossy eyed looks of disbelief and relief.

At 5 pm we made homemade pizza then sent the mini-vacationers off to the bunks.


Now, we are settling into a sort of slow-down as we sink into serenity--long-awaited, much needed--thanks to generous family for room and board with all the creature comforts and conveniences (we've still only spent on gas and food!).

So where did he accept the job? Did I miss something? Is it San Diego?

Ingrid said...

Congrats, Jordan! Some well deserved and comforting news!

I can just picture all the smiles as you departed for your fun vacation!

Kelly said...

Yep, wondering too where Craig's job will take you. Congratulations! You must be so relieved to have that detail ironed out. What a perfect start to a vacation!

molodetz! how fun to be at the beach where to ebb and tide is at home in itself making all the changes seem fitting.

I keep waiting for the moment of the big reveal...

I'm so glad you finally know, but when will we. :)

Michelle said...

Congratulations! How exciting! You have so many new adventures awaiting you in the coming months- wow!

I'm guessing somewhere on the East Coast because who in their right mind would call someone at 6:45 am unless they thought it was 8:45 am.

kristi said...

i have not come over here for awhile, i am hoping that maybe it is Nashville, was that not the best place!

Amy said...

You're a terrible tease, Jordan. Seriously!

SO happy for you. Can't wait to hear more.
Oh how I love San Diego, that's where I grew up. Enjoy your vacation!

Jeni said...

Hmmm...I think I know where you're going because I know where Craig just came from:)

So, is the camera going to be on the "necessities" list this month or are we not going to see any pictures until May?

It must have been the offer you've been hoping for if it only took two minutes to decide on the reply! Congratulations to you all and have a great getaway.
