I was asked just on Tuesday how I handle weeks without seeing Ty, and the truth is, I’d rather be without him, then have him without his passion. He loves the water. He’s happiest surfing and teaching surfing. When I met him he was a surf instructor. He inspired a book. He inspired me. Why would I ever want him to be anything other than himself? And happy?
With that said–I’m crazy, wildly in love with him and absolutely adore our baby that is beginning to show the Gurney dare-devil side. Baby Mac loves to be flipped and dropped and does his best to throw himself off of things because the free fall part makes him laugh. Laugh.
Which I think is insane.
But hey, he’s his daddy’s boy and I’m a mom of sons and I can do this. I know I can.
And so while I try to keep it together here, Ty’s teaching and welcoming guests to his new Surf & Stay program and getting his awesome beach shop ready to open. The shop is right across the street from the Halekulani Hotel and adjacent to the beach. A perfect location that will really allow his business to grow.
To see more of Ty’s world, visit his brand new, beautiful website, www.tygurneysurfschool.com and you’ll see just why I think this guy is so wonderful. And if you get to visit his site, tell me in the comments below what you like best about it and you’re entered to win a $15 Hawaii Starbucks gift card, a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card, chocolate macadamia nuts, and a signed book of your choice from my backlist. The Surfer Ty contest runs through Saturday night midnight PST and I’ll announce the winners Sunday morning. So if you can, check it out, and let me know what you think!
