Did we really just do that?

So, last week Heather and I boarded a ship bound for the Caribbean.

Doesn't that sound nice?

Well, don't get ahead of me...

We boarded the Carnival Destiny for...

...the KLOVE Friends and Family Cruise.

You heard right.
KLOVE - the "positive and encouraging" Christian radio station.

I know what you're thinking, and believe me- we still can't believe we did it either.

It started out as a joke.

Well, here is the quick version of how it came to be:

We had been saving up some money to take a trip to Disneyworld for our first anniversary. We had some money put away. Heather heard about the KLOVE cruise. We made jokes about actually going. Then, we started discussing how we could make some contacts on it to help me out in the industry. Jokes turned to seriousness. We booked it. We trusted God had a plan for us. We made some demos. Then, we started laughing about it again. We started to think it was crazy again. But...

We embarked from Miami on the ship.

Long story short: it was actually pretty fun. We aren't big fans of cruises, and this one was no exception, but we met some really great people.

Got to see my old pal , Brandon.
Got to meet some really cool artists and musicians in the Christian music community.
Made some great friends with Evan (Mandisa's guitar player, and an all-around great dude), Scott (Third Day's road manager), and Jenna (Scott's girlfriend).

Overall, we had a really good experience. And now we are on to the next step in our journey.
