As I’ve said a few times in my posts this past year, I’ve got big plans for this little site of mine. Changes, updates, a remodel if you will. J and I have some big dreams and we are doing some big planning for the future of our family.
We just got back from a week long adventure to Charleston, SC. We tent camped in the Mount Pleasant KOA and it was absolutely beautiful. It was our first time in Charleston and we loved just about everything about it there. I loved the history of the downtown area, the beauty of the waterfront parks, and the beaches… just gorgeous.
Sullivan’s Island was our absolute favorite beach there, it was quiet, not crowded, and it had a lighthouse at the tail end of the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Charleston and it sparked a dream we’ve had for years. Maybe not a dream really, more like a casual idea we have mentioned to each other over the years.
We love to travel, we love exploring new places and finding hidden gems in small towns. When we lived in Tennessee we had so much fun exploring our new town and the surrounding areas. Back home in North Carolina we’ve been doing more of that and exploring areas we have never been before. For a long time we’ve talked about how amazing it would be to travel full time, to find jobs where we could work on the road and just be with our family. Full time family. That’s what we want. No more 9-5 work, no more constant busyness, no more.
So what does that mean exactly? We aren’t going anywhere right now, but we are planning. We are dreaming. I’m hoping through my blog and possibly my social media channels and YouTube we can start blogging and vlogging our journey. This will be a journey to living debt free, to finding our way to being a full time family and all the details in between. I would love to see us be debt free in less than 3 years, and full time traveling in 4-5. Our kids would be ages 6-13ish by then.
I’m excited to see where God takes us, I’m excited to see what God does with our lives and the lives of our family. There’s always that chance that he’ll change the course in the next few years, but we are ready to follow His lead.
