Are you sitting down? I've got some crazy news.

Life has been super busy......... But in a good way.


I've been keeping a HUGE secret for awhile.........

It's finally official: Andrew and I are both unemployed.

We will be using some of our retirement money to fund a journey that will take us across Canada and the United States.

Along this journey we will learn about ourselves and each other. We will explore new places and meet new people from all walks of life.

"We will finally see what it means to be living"
Tracy Chapman

Yes, not getting a paycheck is going to be scary....... But being stressed out and tied down because of one is much worse.

I look forward to a new perspective on life, and seeing what the future holds.

Gotta run.

That is so cool! If you come through North Carolina and need a place to crash, let me know!

Not so crazy an idea ...sounds like fun!

You never know what the future holds so you have to strike a balance between being the grasshopper and the ant (if you know that fable!)

This is awesome!! What a great journey to take, and to do together of course. Huge leap of faith, but I'm sure you will learn a lot about yourselves, each other, the world we live in. I am jealous! :)

How exciting! My hubs and I just picked up and moved from Hong Kong to Georgia to build a house--so scary, investing all our money, we didn't have jobs when we came here--and it was SO WORTH IT!
