Robert Bledsoe  Hi! I'm Bob.

Today we rented a boat with the fam, drove an hour and a half north, and found a random island called Cabbage Key. Rumor has it that it's the place where Jimmy Buffet got his inspiration for "cheeseburger in paradise." We then climbed to the top of the water tower on the little island. It was an awesome Saturday on the water!

2 years later and I didn't realize how much more I could fall in love with you. Happy anniversary Jessica! I love you more than key lime pie (which is a lot).

I worked a whole 3 weeks as an adult before I needed to take my first vacation πŸ˜‚

It was a great one though! Got to witness the wedding of Scott and Hannah at Gunston Hall, spend time with the in-laws, and see a lot of houses (George Mason's, Rob and Ruth's new home, and even Beka and Tyler's in Maryland!) It's been a terrific trip consisting of light rain and a high of 85. Can't wait to come back and meet the newest member of the family in October! Uncle Bob is coming your way πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Whether I'm asking my Dad what in the world something means in life with sweet tea in hand, or chopping wood and discussing the future with my father-in-law all I know is that I'm an unbelievable blessed man to have these two as my guides. It's days like today I realize how lucky I am. Happy Father's Day to you two (without you, who knows where I'd be).

Obligatory "we're Florida residents again family trip to Disney" photo πŸ†πŸ—πŸ’ And yes, for all who are wondering - Pandora was incredible.

Slowly but surely I'm remembering how to be a Floridian...

Today I officially became a Pastor (I've got a piece of paper to prove it). There are not words to describe how honored I am to be entering into this vocation. There are so many people to thank and appreciate who got me to where I am today. For that, please log into Facebook and read it there πŸ™‚

What an incredible few days. My grandmother had a birthday, I graduated from Duke Divinity, and my whole family was in town - but most importantly it was Mother's Day. I am so thankful for the outstanding women in our family who continually love and care for me. It was a fantastic last weekend in Durham!

For the past three years we've considered our unofficial church home Duke Chapel. Today was the last Sunday we'll be able to attend before we move. We've spent Easters, Christmas Eves, birthdays, and all the other days worshipping here listening to some of the most profound people we've ever met or seen. Today we were sent with a challenging word. "God doesn't want pastors who smell like books. God wants pastors who will smell like sheep. God wants pastors who will leave the 99% and seek out the 1% who need the help." We hope that as we begin this next phase in life we will smell like sheep and be good shepherds.

What a day! A big thank you to Jessica for a terrific early graduation present (the round of golf, the bag, the shirt, and the visor). So awesome! It was a blast to play one more round with my best buds. T-minus 17 days until we are Florida bound. Trying our best to make everyday count left in Durham!

It's been a wonderful few years Durham, but it's time to say see you later. Jessica and I are extremely excited and overwhelmed with joy to finally announce that I have been appointed to serve as the Associate Pastor at Cypress Lake United Methodist Church in Fort Myers, Florida. Watch out sunshine state - the Bledsoe's are coming home!

My fellow Durhamites and triangle people - this post is for you! Tomorrow 3 families are getting together to sell their awesome stuff before they move at a garage sale! The address is there and that's the house. Stop by and check it out from 7AM until 12PM!
