Imagine living your life plagued by ignoring your passions, disenchanted with the idea of pursuing your journey, and crippled by your inability to truly connect with people for fear of being disappointed or let down.
Imagine finding your life a constant game of bumper cars into: dead ends; people who discouraged you from becoming who you were; paths you felt you “should” be doing; actions that you knew in your gut were stupid or meaningless. A life driven by fear, need for approval, and paralyzing fear of the unknown.
Imagine, after nearly a decade of a roller coaster ride of self-discovery, you surrender your need to control, you let people into your inner ring of acceptance with a vulnerability and humor, and replace that twisted, yucky part of your soul with a big. deep. breath.
Imagine, you find yourself looking up to find your deepest desires of your being coming true – and you realize this is a small step into a new, exciting, terrifying, magical, crazy, and fantastically bewildering new chapter.
Imagine closing your eyes, coming back to that big breath… and when you exhale and open your eyes, you’re hand-in-hand with the one who lights up your heart to new possibilities. You’re surrounded by family & friends who’ve stood by you in your most exciting as well as most trying times. You’re armed with a fresh new perspective, a capacity for growth, and a sense of exploration and purpose. You’ve graduated from the $2.99 Trader Joe’s “Two Buck Chuck” to the $7.99 uppity grocery store wine. (It’s on sale, but no one else has to know.) You have no idea what lay ahead… and instead of fear, avoidance, and scared, angry thoughts, you open your weird, waffle-loving heart to that new world of possibility.
This is Harbour Affair.
She’s an extension of her “big sister,” the one who started it all: Breakfast at Target. She’s the new space on the internet to share new, magical gift of a chapter as John and I navigate the new waters of our new home on the Lowcountry coast. (Pun may or may not have been intended – the choice is yours, friend.)
She’s not a space necessarily for fashion or frills or how-to’s, but she is open to that exploration should this new chapter decide. She’ll continue to be the voice capturing thoughts and conversations and special times/places/moments; she’s just got a new saltwater spin.
And we’re excited you’re here.
To those of you joining for the first time, we welcome you – and thanks for joining in.
For those who’ve been with us since those early, bizarre Breakfast at Target posts of my early “20-something” youth, you deserve a special thank you for sticking with us.
Stay tuned, friends.
Hugs & High Fives,
