The Gypsy Series: The Unwanted Location

I waited longer than I should have to pack up for New Mexico.  I started to slowly pack weeks before, but never reached a point of near completion until the final couple days before the movers arrived. I had a broken hand at the time limiting the amount of weight I could handle when packing and my mother-in-law…

The Gypsy Series: A Long Goodbye

I am not quite ready to leave my fond memories in Arizona.  I have a place in my soul that will always long for her. Before we leave here for our journey to begin to New Mexico let us linger a little longer in the Grand Canyon State. I am going to reminisce on one of the…

The Gypsy Series: Return to the Garden State

I imagine that by now I have unlocked the front door of my new house, shared the moment  of hope with my children for a home to keep for longer than a year, while feeling a small sadness that our journey has reached a long pause.  I anticipate the overall feeling of being able to dream about growing together as…

Fresh off the Boat

Six months after giving birth to thing my husband spend a year overseas living on a boat herding tuna with his helicopter.  This was a career move we agreed upon that would fast track his career by 5-10 years.  It was a shortcut to get into better jobs state sides.  We weighed the options which lead to…

Two Roads

I have been in a slump the past couple weeks.  I have mentioned an impending move before with my excitement surrounding the idea of putting down deeper roots in a location that we could see ourselves living, but a couple days ago, Friday I believe, it was staring me in the face.  The taste was on…

Buried in the Sand

I am always leaving and moving onward to the next adventure. I never know what that adventure is until moments before it happens. I am quick on my toes, having the ability to pack and rearrange my schedule in moments! Every new town I step into I explore ways to immerse myself and my kids into…
