We have news. We are picking up our lives and moving to a new city. Not around the globe, but a 5 hour drive away. It may as well be the other side of the world with the amount of planning it takes: preparing and selling our home, packing, hiring movers and a storage space (because we are still looking for a house on the other end), looking for a new home and finding temporary housing while we wait.
We’ve also decided to add one more wrench into our plans: we’d like to take the opportunity without a mortgage to take a dream trip.
I’m still baffled at our decision to do this. Throwing caution to the wind, as they say. I thought we’d want to lay low and play safe with a baby. But, it turns out the wanderlust is calling, and we want to answer it with baby in toe!
We figure our expenses are low, we will be temporarily between jobs, and Chris didn’t really get a parental leave, so this gives him a chance to spend real, quality time with Evey while she is so young.
So we will be leaving for Thailand at the end of October, right after the closing of our house (less than a month away, I know!).
Moments of packing are now speckled with trip plans, passport application for baby, and making sure our vaccines are in order. It’s going to be an adventure of a lifetime, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
Here’s to new adventures and capturing moments in life. I can’t wait to spend the next few months with the two loves of my life.
