Our story!

For several years now I have had the urge to travel which has been a dream of mine before marriage and children. My husband was never keen on the idea until one afternoon in 2016 he said, "let's do this!" The next day I began to sell, donate and give away items from my home. He was a bit shocked when he got home from work. I immediately called a realtor and our home sold within 24 hours for more than we were asking. I had sold, donated and given away EVERYTHING so that the day we moved we didn't even need a truck. We were able to drive away with everything we had left in both our vehicles. We moved to a smaller place directly across from the beach to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets for the following year before taking off to travel full time!

Happy New Years! πŸŽ‰

 It has been since October that I have written anything because of deaths and serious illnesses in our family. We had to cancel our trip last fall to Bar Harbor, Maine and instead left Upstate New York and traveled to Delaware to be with our nephew as he was suffering from liver failure. We spent the end of Sept until the beginning of December there with both our niece and nephew. During that time we had a death in the family so we spent some of that time in Tennessee with family and funeral arrangements. 

This has been one of the most difficult and emotional years for us in our travels. We were glad to be able to be flexible enough to move around and spend time with family during their difficulties. I have to say that blogging was no longer important and just maintaining ourselves emotionally became the priority. This has left me feeling emotionally fragile this year and I am still processing everything. 

Now we are back in Florida with family and friends getting caught up with everyone, especially our grandkids! We will be here to catch up on medical appointments and things that need to be taken care of before we leave again mid-March. Then we will begin heading west to Texas to spend time in that beautiful state and spend time with family!

During all the crisis of life these past few months my husband found an RV that he has wanted for quite some time. We have upgraded to a 30 ft Majestic Thor and it has been such a great rig for us. I will write all about that in another blog.

We are still loving this travel life and cannot imagine it differently. God may have other plans in our future but for now He has certainly given us the desires of our heart with our nomadic life!
