When I turned forty, fourteen years ago it hit me hard.
I had a good life, and a great career as a floral shoppe entrepreneur. But something was missing, I went to Greece by myself on vacation and there it was, the turquoise waters, and the clear blue skies, the people, and the relaxed way of life, it was just what I was dreaming of.
So, I sold my business packed up and moved to the island of Paros, Greece. Now most people think it was a brave or adventurous thing to do, I have never really looked at it that way. I was driven, and six months later I was lucky enough to meet my husband, a Greek sailing Captain.
I was also fortunate enough to have a lot of time on my hands, something I never had in my former life. This led to endless sunny days of beach combing. I have always been a beach comber, and when I started finding sea glass on the island it was like hitting the lottery.
My husband had no idea what sea glass was. But he did have the sailors experience to know wind, and just about every little cove throughout the islands. He sure does know what sea glass is today, and has become an expert collector. He has sailed us to some of the most outstanding coves for collecting sea glass imaginable. Most of our prized pieces have come from the Greek Islands.
Today we split our time between Greece and The Florida Keys and the journey continues.
