Oh, the Places You'll GO!

by - Tuesday, February 12, 2013

How I love Dr. Seuss and the wise words in his book, Oh, the places you'll go! Remember that road trip that I shared with you earlier this year? Well, one of the biggest reasons behind the trip was us looking for the perfect destination to relocate to. We've been Minnesota natives forever and it just isn't a place that we see ourselves living forever. We've made some huge changes in our lives, we've downsized everything and really tried simplifying our day to day operations. After so much reflection and consideration we've made one BIG decision. We've still got a lot of work ahead of us however, we have a plan. A plan is all we need to get going and I'm happy with it! With all that being said, I cannot keep the secret any longer. If you know me or have e-mailed me, I apologize for any delay as I've had a lot on my mind. Without further ado --

You see that above? We're MOVING!! That's where we're headed in the next 6 months. The SUNNY southwest! We plan on making our home in Arizona!  When we took our road trip, we absolutely fell in love with AZ. We haven't quite sorted out all the details as of yet but we have a general area in mind. We're thrilled to share our news with you and can't wait to share our journey! 

In the next few months, we plan on getting rid of almost everything! I plan on having an online garage sale and may post a few things on the blog that might be of interest to you lovely friends. I'm so excited to start a new adventure and the next phase of our life! I think 2013 will be the best year yet!

peace, love & coffee,
p.s. if you're a reader in Arizona -- tell me what you love about living there! (and which areas you love!)
