Our Story

Life was feeling fast. Our children aren't in school yet, our oldest daughter is at the pre-K age, so we decided to pause the hustle and go on a 6 month adventure. The goal, well, there are several goals but a main one was to have some real time together as a family before life sped up even more. The blur of school, classes, practices, games, recitals, etc is coming around the corner and approaching us fast.

Life as a family was already feeling like more a series of event logistics than quality time, forget about adventure. So we took a deep breath, packed up our stuff, and left our home in California. 

We didn’t know if it was going to work. We still don’t. There’s a real possibility that a year from now we may be writing a blog about how naive and foolish we were. We also know that we were incredibly blessed to be able to even attempt something like this. Not everyone has this option and we acknowledge this.

Within this blog we talk about how we did this, what has worked, what hasn’t, and recap our adventures.

We heard somewhere that only friends and family will read your blog...well, if you’re reading please know that we agree and consider you part of our friends and family. This blog is written for you from that place. Feel free to ask us questions or email us and we will get back to you.

Thanks for joining us on our adventure.

Us 5 ~ with love
