September 14th, marks exactly one year that we took a leap of faith, left our home and all that we knew in Kansas City behind, and trekked half away across the country to Charlottesville, VA to begin our new life.
Our mission: Voluntary simplicity. Although we L♡VED KC, we wanted to create a simpler, more enjoyable, freeing life for ourselves and our children. One that did not entail so many self imposed commitments that kept us busy working for everyone but ourselves. A life that could be created around our dreams, our life goals, our relatives, incorporate new adventures and a fresh breath of new inspiration, and allow us to grow personally, professionally and spiritually.
What a wonderful year it has been. We are so thankful that we heeded to that call and made the choice to live our lives as we define it. Life is way too short to just watch it happen, you have to make it happen.
Sometimes that involves starting over, and that’s ok, because there’s almost always an even bigger blessing in store.
