Signing off .... from Sarasota

Well the time has come .... quicker than last but that's how it alway seems to go. The start of baseball season is a mere four days away. The season opener in Baltimore is just a week away. And the most unbelievable part of it all is that Abby and I head outta here tomorrow. Tomorrow!

Every season is different than the last and it's always such an adventure. I get caught up in the excitement of America's favorite game. I look forward to road trips to cities I've never seen or cities that I'm happy to return to. I soak up time with my family and childhood friends and enjoy visiting my hometown. There are definitely a lot of things I love about being in Baltimore and I thank God for the time we are there.

There is just one thing that never changes. The day before we head out always seems a bit surreal. My mind races all day long ... today will be the last day for us to be in our home. Today will be the last day for me to see some of my best friends. It will be the last day for Abby to play crazily in her playroom and to point at the flowers on the wall in her room when I tuck her in. Tonight will be the last night hubs and I sleep in our comfy bed.

But ... with all those thoughts that loom in my head today, I have that craving for a new adventure. So to Baltimore we go ... can't wait to see what God has in store for us this baseball season. And we'll be back home before we know it!

I'm signing off from Sunny Sarasota .... and I'll be picking back up in Snowy Baltimore in just a few days!! I'll leave you for now with a few recent pics of Abby ... taken by her Daddy! :)
