It's been a long time since we last wrote, and for that we apologize. The past few weeks have been a bit hectic, but all in the best possible way. Since Vanessa and I are on the road so much, it's hard to have time to see family. So, we decided that for the end of May and into June, that's all we would do.
It really is something wonderful to be able to spend time with family at your own pace. I remember back to have abbreviated visits just a few years ago because of my work schedule. I missed out on quite a few opportunities to make memories with loved ones because I was bogged down with a conventional lifestyle.
We've been to Wisconsin and Chicago catching up with Vanessa's family, then I hopped a plane to New Jersey and Sarasota, Florida to visit mine. Although we both are still working while we visit, there's no pressure to rush back because a boss is breathing down my neck.
It is with moments like these-- reuniting with my siblings, having a glass of sangria with my dad, making the most of a three-hour layover with my sister, helping my stepmom decorate the house for a baby shower, or simply playing cards around the table with my mother-- that remind me of how lucky I am to have CHOSEN this life for myself.
Right now, I'm exactly where I want to be, and that contentment is more fulfilling than anything else.
Stay tuned for our next leg of travel. It's almost be a year (A FULL YEAR!) since we embarked on this journey of RV travel, and we have some big things in store.
