What an incredible sabbatical this has been.  We have been on the road exploring the West for 7 months and our road trip has recently come to an end.  I am in mourning.  BIG TIME.  I have loved this time for us to be free, to explore, to see the most beautiful, varied, breathtaking landscapes that our country has to offer, all on our own time without a schedule, without normal everyday stresses, without any strings attached.  It has been a dream – that is the only way to describe it – and it already seems like a dream.  Like it didn’t happen.  I have to remind myself that it did happen and we were so lucky to have been able to take some time out of real life to explore and satisfy some wanderlust for a while.  If you think it has gotten the wanderlusting out of our systems, you are sadly mistaken.  It has only whetted our appetites for more travels, more meeting new people, more adventures, more crafting our lives to be what we want them to be.  But now it’s time to put down some roots and get back to reality, as much as that pains me.  And so we have moved back home to Florida!
