It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

On Our Way ~

Tomorrow, the cats and I will begin our new adventure.

I booked the hotel today, the air smells like apples .. we will sleep on a big fat bed with comforters and no sound but a car going by now and then ..

After the past few days of frenzied packing and and today signing the last of the official papers, I can leave with just memories and cats . A day of rest and a  good nights sleep .. we will be ready to head South.

I decided not to make it one of those drive til you get there trips but I will just drive, stop when I feel like it, take photos and make it the way my husband used to say ... Make it a Treat, Not a Treatment.
So I have to drive to Florida, it will be an adventure.

I didn't get my phone with maps and things so I will have to rely on the old fashioned cell phone and maps.
I have cameras and cats, what else do I need ??

When I arrive in Florida , there will be a frenzy of house hunting then I will be all set.
And after an appropriate amount of resting time ... I want to check on airfares to Argentina.
Buenos Aires and I have unfinished business.

So it will be quiet here for a little while.
I hope everyone has a good week ... talk to you soon ~


  1. Safe travels Candice! Hope all goes well for you and the cats. Make it a fun road trip.

  18. I am thinking of you. I don't know where in Florida you will land, but I am in Fort Lauderdale and if your travels take you there let me know and I will cook you dinner and pet your cats. Until then, safe travels. It is an adventure. I always love driving solo. No one can interrupt your thoughts. I find it very calming. God Bless.

  19. Dearest Candice,
    Hope by now you're already approaching the South and on your way to the new destiny.
    Best wishes and enjoy it. Good advice by your late husband; he is stil with you!

  20. So very happy for you and the kitties!
    Safe and enjoyable travels are wished for you!!

  21. I am so happy for you that you sold your house and are on your way with your kitties. I have one room almost cleaned up and 11 more to go – of course my husband does not help at all, and caring for him takes so much time that I don’t have time for the move. The weather has been lovely so I think you will have a good trip south. I noticed you had a March birthday – happy belated birthday. My birthday was last Saturday, March 26, but my husband did not remember it, he also could not remember my name … it was not a fun day. I bought some second-hand CDs at a library sale, one was of Argentine tangos – I would love to visit Buenos Aires, always wanted to go there. I hope you will go back soon. Take care.

  22. Missing you here. Hope all is well with you and the kitties. You must be seeing the �� by now.

  23. Hopefully you have now arrived and are closer to your beloved Buenos Aires. Hope you and the kitties had a good trip and are now in sunshine.
