I’m at the beginning of what I call midlife trying to find my way through life. Back in 2008, I became a widow and my life changed in a way I never saw coming. I took several months to mourn before getting my life back together; although some days I still ask myself if I have things together or not.
In 2009, I completed my bachelors degree and moved from Tallahassee, Florida to Nashville, Tennessee. It was supposed to be a way to start my life over. My children had all completed high school and moved on with their lives and I felt the empty nest syndrome moving in rather quickly. I arrived in TN with nothing but my possessions and an apartment to move into. I had no job, no friends and no family. I either had to make it or go back with my tail tucked between my legs. I started a job in March and life continued to improve from there. I completed a masters program in 2012, bought my first house in 2013 and met the man who would become my husband.
In March 2014 I married my husband, Greg. By the end of the year, we had sold or given away all of our possessions and moved into a fifth-wheel RV as we prepared to embark on the biggest bucket list item of my life, full-time travel. Our first trip started in March 2015. Soon after we hit the road we acquired our first furbaby, Oscar, a milk chocolate colored short-haired male dachshund. Four months later we added a girl, Harley, to the mix, who is a dark chocolate, short-haired dachshund.
We both share the same love for fishing, hunting, bowling, traveling and reading. In addition, I enjoy sewing, using my Cricut, crocheting, loom knitting, cross stitching, cooking and a good DIY project.
In 2018, after spending three years in an RV, we decided to settle down again and move back into a site built home and restart/rebuild our lives. We settled on the town of Clarksville, Tennessee. In October 2018, we bought a site built house. We’ll see how long this last before we move back into the RV.
Our mission remains the same and that is to live a simple live while experiencing as much of life as we can. My philosophy is – “You only live once, so make the most of it while you can as you never know when today might be your last.”
