I was going through some journal notes and came across this little tidbit from 1/4/2020 in Myrtle Beach:
"Well I have finally had my New Year's celebration! I have been under a bit of a cloud since I got the call about Shine sinking on Christmas Eve. I didn’t realize how dense the cloud cover was until she was raised yesterday and towed to her final resting place in a salvage yard. Slowly, as the day went on and we headed out of town, I felt the weight of loss begin to lift and light start breaking through. By the time the 80s music was in full swing, I felt the celebration of 2020 finally fill my heart. I was ready to lay 2019 to rest and take on 2020 - and turning 50 - with a vengeance. Seriously... what better way to do both than kickin' back a bourbon neat with Tiffany at a private meet and greet? I cannot think of one. Cheers 2020! And Happy 12 Months of Beth!"
LOL..little did I know that my thoroughly thought out, bucket list filled, 50th year of life would be hijacked by The Rona, cancellation of every single planned birthday event, working from home in quarantine, extended weeks of protests and rioting, something about killer hornets, complete job "pivot," and right now - as I write this - the sky is hazy with Saharan dust. Dare I ask what is next??
In any case, the year started with Tiffany. Yes... an "I think we're alone now," Tiffany hosted 80's dance party and concert. It was a spectacular kick off to my 50th year and as such, felt it was a good place to start the travel notes on Loosed-Leafed. Who knows when the next trip will be!? Might be adding previous travels to the archives for a while!
This blog is a personal collection of my thoughts, wins, losses, memories, and crossroad moments. Almost all of which were hashed out around my kitchen counter and in my journals. If any of it resonates with you and you are ready to free-up the hidden badass you ARE right now, I can help. It’s time… Click the link and Let’s chat.
