This is us.

AT THE BEGINNNING OF ALMOST EVERY CHARTER I GET ASKED THIS VERY SAME QUESTION…“IS IT REALLY HARD WORKING IN THIS INDUSTRY WITH YOUR HUSBAND?  I COULDN’T IMAGINE LIVING AND WORKING TOGETHER 24/7…”

OF COURSE, THIS PROMPTS ME TO THINK TO MYSELF, “WELL I DIDN’T MARRY JON TO BE WITHOUT HIM. I MARRIED THIS MAN SO THAT I COULD SHARE THESE VERY ADVENTURES WITH THE PERSON THAT I LOVE MOST.”  JON FREQUENTLY GETS ASKED THIS SAME QUESTION AS WELL.  WE HAVE HAD MANY CONVERSATIONS ABOUT HOW INTERESTING IT IS THAT MOST OF OUR CHARTER GUESTS THINK IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRAZY WE CHOSE TO DO THIS TOGETHER. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT WE CHOSE TO START THIS CAREER TOGETHER ABOUT ONE MONTH AFTER WE GOT MARRIED!

OF COURSE, WE JOKE ABOUT HOW OUR FIRST YEAR OF MARRIAGE WAS IN VERY TIGHT QUARTERS, ON A BOAT, WITH NEW GUESTS WEEK IN AND WEEK OUT. THE CHARTER INDUSTRY WAS VERY NEW TO US, AND OF COURSE THIS TYPE OF VACATION WAS NEW TO OUR GUESTS AS WELL.  I GUESS IT WAS THE REAL TEST.  HOWEVER, WE WERE VERY CONFIDENT THAT THIS IS WHAT WE WANTED FROM THE MOMENT WE DECIDED TO DO THIS CRAZY THING CALLED LIFE TOGETHER.   SOME PEOPLE ADMIRE IT OF COURSE, AND THEN THERE ARE OTHERS THAT SIMPLY SAY “THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY I COULD DO THIS WITH MY HUSBAND.”  TRUST ME, WE KNOW THIS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE, BUT WE SURE DO LOVE THIS PATH WE CHOSE!

NOW THAT JON AND I ARE NEARING THE END OF OUR SECOND CHARTER SEASON TOGETHER, I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THE REASONS WHY WE TRULY ENJOY LIVING AND WORKING TOGETHER, DAY IN AND DAY OUT.

EVERYDAY WE WAKE UP NEXT TO EACH OTHER.

EVERYDAY WE GET TO SHARE A SLICE OF PARADISE TOGETHER.

EVERYDAY WE EAT BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND DINNER TOGETHER.

EVERYDAY, WHETHER GOOD OR BAD, WE TAKE IT IN STRIDE TOGETHER.

EVERYDAY, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, WE DO FIND OUR ALONE TIME.

EVERYDAY, WE HAVE EACHTOHER TO TALK ABOUT THE UPS AND DOWNS.

EVERYDAY, WE MISS OUR FAMILY, OUR FRIENDS, AND OUR PETS.

EVERYDAY WE TALK ABOUT “HOME”…HOWEVER, WE HAVE COME TO REALIZE THIS IS OUR HOME.

EVERYDAY, WE TALK ABOUT THE FUTURE.

EVERYDAY WE HELP EACH OTHER GROW.

EVERYDAY WE SOLVE PROBLEMS TOGETHER.

EVERYDAY IS NOT EASY.

EVERY NIGHT, WE TALK ABOUT WATCHING A MOVIE BEFORE BED, AND I FALL ASLEEP ABOUT 99.9% OF THE TIME.

EVERY NIGHT WE KISS EACH OTHER AND KNOW THAT THE NEXT DAY WILL BRING NEW BEGINNINGS, ADVENTURES, AND POSSIBILITIES.

EVERYDAY, WE TALK ABOUT HOW LUCKY AND FORTUNATE WE ARE TO HAVE A JOB WE BOTH LOVE AND TRULY ENJOY.

EVERYDAY WE ARE REMINDED WHY WE CHOSE EACHOTHER.

AS WE NEAR THE END OF THIS CHARTER SEASON ON SPLIT SECOND (JUST 3 CHARTERS LEFT AND ABOUT 2000 MILES TO GO ;-), I THINK WE CAN BOTH AGREE THAT WE ARE HAPPY WE CHOSE TO DO THIS CRAZY THING CALLED LIFE TOGETHER…ON A BOAT!

 

CHEERS,

 

KAIT AND JON
