Our first warm weather Christmas season was filled with faux fireplaces, sand "snow"men, paddleboarding, and "snow" storms on historic 3rd Ave. Much to our surprise, we didn't miss cold wether shenanigans (except snowboarding, we always miss snowboarding😞) We had our share of 65 degree mornings...Brrrrrr! Happy Holidays from Team Rockley!
Most exciting part of Christmas season = rummaging through the Christmas deco box.

Happy Birthday to our little Bear
We headed out to Billie Swamp Safari to stay in a chickee hut for a couple of nights. It's kind of like camping in a cute little bunk house while dreaming of gators surrounding your hut upon your awakening.
Air Boat ElCapitan
We spent 2016's final day at the beach (SURPRISE!)
Happy New Year! 2016 treated us well. Tons of adventure accompanied by tons of the great unknown. I'd say we're living truer to ourselves these days, but we're still journeying to our "best selves," whatever that is...maybe purpose is a more accurate word. Aren't we all, though? We're in search of where to land (or not land) our family and we'll just keep rollin' til we know what to do. Cheers to adventure and the unknown!
