What’s a Peaceful Pirate?

A long time ago, my husband and I took our two small boys to Johns Pass near Tampa, Fl. It happened to be the same weekend as a pirate festival. So there we were among scallywags and lost treasure – our boys were having a field day.

I really wanted to come home with a t-shirt to remember the event – but they were all designed with┬ápirate themes that were not family G rated.

So on the way home, I decided to design my own shirt. It started out as the Pleasant Pirate – a smiley face with an eyepatch. But I soon changed it to Peaceful Pirate.

What began as a silly t-shirt idea ended up being the catalyst for a life changing event. Something I never saw coming. And something that forever changed how I saw myself. Stay tuned….
