Hey there! I’m Shannon.
Mom, Writer, Traveler, Animal Lover & hater of all bugs!
I’m just a 40-something-year-old girl from Oregon. Well, I’m actually beating down the door to 50 but as long as there is a 4 in my age, I’m not admitting to anything.
In 1999, at the ripe young age of 29, I moved from Oregon to Colorado to “find myself” and snowboard fulltime! What can I say? I got a late start, but I assure you, I’ve caught up.
I packed my Honda Civic with all of my belongings and set out for the unknown. Not only did I find myself, but I also found a husband, Gregg, which led to a plant, Paul, then a dog, Quito, and eventually a son, Noah.
Now, almost 20 years later, here we are, living smack in the middle of 5 major ski resorts in Summit County, Colorado. Life is pretty darn good!
And yet, we want more!
Have you ever asked yourself, “What am I doing here? What is my purpose? Is this really the right hair color for me?”
Don’t get me wrong! I love my life, but shouldn’t there be more than working 40+ hours a week, taking 1-2 vacations a year, carpooling to school and back? Something is definitely missing.
Luckily, I have an amazing husband that feels exactly the same. And a son who is already 3 years into a Spanish immersion school and has traveled more in his short 8 years of life than I did in my first 25.
Travel calls to us and we are constantly searching for those new horizons where experience holds more importance than money and things. It’s our dream to toss the unnecessary things in life aside, learn to live with just the basics, and set out for the unknown.
We saved, we planned…saved a little more, and downsized our lives into a closet. Then we bought a home on wheels and hit the road!
For a quick vacation? No. For one year!
