Our New Boat: December 2015


Our first sailboat! It is officially ours, just in time for Christmas. We have gone around and around with a name. As you see in this Christmas card, we started out with the idea that we would name it Seven C’s. We were talking one day and said all of us like being the chief (leader) and never the follower. All seven of us! This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one.  So jokingly, we said we would name her Seven C’s. It was fitting as we toyed with the name even further. The Seven Sea’s!!!! The name did not sit well with us, then we decided on Anchor’s Aweigh, nope. Next, name Neverland, sounds good. Works well. Fits us. Done. Nope! Back to the original, original. When we first got our boat, my husband suggested we name it Fancy Face. He came up with that name because I told him when we first met that whoever I marry will call me Fancy Face, like Bo would call Hope on Days of Our Lives. I thought it was so romantic. It has been the name he has called me for the past 15 years. It was cute. An ode to our love story. Sign, sealed and delivered. Meet our new to us boat, Fancy Face!
