This moment right here. 

This made the past 5 weeks of chaos, anxiety, stress and that undeniable feeling of being overwhelmed by all things trip-planning disappear.  Fully.  And completely.  

That breeze you felt on Sunday?  That was me exhaling across the Atlantic.  For real.

Technically the trip began on Friday when our plane left Toronto.  But this moment right here, this is when it really began.  We spent a few hours in the ocean off Cape Cod, fighting, ducking, dodging and dancing with the waves.  The smiles, screams and laughter were all worth it.

Every last one.  

Yep, this moment was the beginning.  

And, ohhh what a beginning it was.
