Captain Sandy Yawn is cheering on her girlfriend, Leah Shafer, as she makes a major career “pivot.” In a recent Instagram Story, the Below Deck Mediterranean boss shared a photo of Leah showing off her latest accomplishment, and — here’s a hint — it’s a rather beautiful one.

Sandy’s post shows the always radiant Leah clutching a diploma with a golden seal. The certification states that Leah, who is also a gospel singer, has completed 132 hours of permanent-makeup school. “I’m so proud of you!” Sandy wrote, adding the hashtag “pivot.” The captain also added a GIF of herself clapping delightedly — and she has every reason to be proud.

Sandy was at the front lines of Leah’s budding beauty career. In 2020, the couple shared a sweet photo of themselves having a spa night at home. The date involved charcoal masks and a whole lot of love. “[Two] years ago I met this incredible soul, my true love,” Sandy wrote then. “It’s so true couples that play together stay together. Yep, this is Leah’s idea of fun, detoxing the skin with a charcoal mask!” 

Well, look where Leah’s idea of fun has taken her now! 

Sandy was celebrating Leah in her recent Instagram post, but Leah was celebrating Sandy when the latter’s birthday rolled around in February.  

In Sandy’s Instagram Stories, Leah filled followers in on the February 23 celebration. “It’s [Sandy’s] birthday,” she said. “We’re gonna go on a boat ride, we’re gonna go on a barbecue, and we ate too many sweets today.” 

Later, Sandy shared footage from her sunset cruise. On this charter, all she had to do was soak up the love. The captain filmed all her friends wishing her a happy birthday, as well as a sweet serenade from Leah. 

And it’s not just birthdays and career pivots that inspire the couple to post sweet messages for each other. Back in April, Sandy gushed over her love in a sweet post… just because! 

“Love is love and I love this woman!” she wrote in the caption of her April 23 post, which featured a sweet snapshot of Sandy and Leah on a lavish cruise ship. The Below Deck Med boss went on to add, “When you are ready love will find you as it did for me!”

Leah couldn’t help but return the love in the comments of the post, writing, “I love US, and this ship is BEYOND amazing! Wowza.”

It’s official: This Bravo couple is riding the love boat.
