“If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies”
Oh the butterflies. We have those. If you follow us on Facebook you already know our house went up for sale about a week ago. Change is coming for the McKelveys. As if we weren’t already serious enough about looking for a boat our efforts are multiplied now–our prayers that God would lead us to the boat for us have been multiplied. (If you’re feeling up to it, please join us in praying about this one, too!)
Last month took us to the Fort Lauderdale/Miami, Florida area to look for boats. Or was it the beginning of this month? Time is flying by in this household and the days and weeks all run together these days! We thought we found one that we really liked and that would be perfect for us, but upon further prayer and examination we have determined that is not the case. So, back to the drawing board (or Yacht World to be more exact) we went! While we have, again, narrowed it down to two boats we really want to see there is one issue: they are in two different states! What is a family to do when looking for a floating home and the two they like are roughly 9.5 hours apart from one another and anywhere from 8.5-12 hours from our current home? ROAD TRIP! We are praying one of the boats we see will be it for us, but ultimately we know all of this is in God’s hands and already covered in His plans. All we can do is put our best foot forward to figure out what that is.
This kid LOVED going on every single boat and would ALWAYS sing the theme song to “Jake and the Neverland Pirates” while on board.
While this is a rather hastily written post tonight the primary reason I had to update was because we are becoming more “official” in our liveaboard life. While we don’t have our floating home yet our pile of things to take on the boat is stacking up in the basement and we are getting in touch with our creative side…or rather the creative side of Megan Anderson from “How To Paint a Life”. For those who follow Lane’s blog, Beautiful Body Acceptance you know she has a professionally designed logo and cover photo for her blog. Well, we decided our adventures as McKelveys on the Move needed a professional logo, too! We got in contact with Megan, which wasn’t too hard because she is one of Lane’s best friends, and hired her to design a logo for us. (Yes, if any of you are friends with us on Facebook, this is the same Megan who painted the STUNNING portrait of Vivienne for Christmas.)
Anyway, we give you the official logo of McKelveys on the Move:
And I give you a photo of me and the amazing and talented Megan Anderson (in the snow)!
Prayerfully we will be able to update you soon with news on the floating home situation but until then….
Par la Foi,
