A month or so ago, my website was hacked and I lost a year’s worth of posts 🙁 so allow me to recap. Last summer my husband and I got rid of a great many of our belongings and hit the road. We spent about six months rambling around the country, from Portland to NYC, and finally decided to settle down in Boulder, Colorado. Here’s why:
It’s incredibly beautiful here, and quiet, and the winter has a sunshine/snow ratio of about 90/10. We lucked into a super cute house one block from the bottom of a mountain, and we now have a couch and a bed and dining table again. Still no chairs for the table, but that will come soon enough … and we do have this guy:
Working from home, taking lots of walks, drinking lots of tea — it’s a nice life. I’m working on the whole making friends thing, and painting, and writing.

It feels a little bit like we’ve dropped off the edge of the world, and I rather like it.
More adventures loom in the next few months — San Miguel de Allende, Amsterdam (or Amsterdang, as Jolene and I call it), Dusseldorf, London, Scotland, and New York City. Stay tuned for pictures and maybe even fabulous insights? We’ll see. I can guarantee pictures at least.
