The Great Adventure

The Great Adventure

It was a fairly beautiful late spring day in Arizona and I was in a horrendous mood. A mood that had thus far seemed to match my year.

Frustrating.

Full of anxiety.

Annoyed.

Confused.

Needing…I was needing something I couldn’t pinpoint.

 

So I hopped in my car with kids in tow and drove. I turned the music up to drown out the kids’ confused questioning, whining and fighting. I rolled the windows down to truly enjoy the drive. ┬áTo get that escape. To free my mind. To find clarity.

I had brief moments of clarity prior to that day, but they were a bit overshadowed by other things I absolutely needed to process. Or attempt to process.

I can’t remember the song playing. I can’t even tell you exactly where I was at on this drive and it hit me. The answer I was seeking, came to me with no doubts mixed in, no confusion, no guessing. Just an answer.

And the plan was set into motion at that very moment….

That is when The Great Adventure began. It has taken roughly 5 to 6 months of planning, deciding and following through to get us here.

Alaska.

But we are here. And it’s been officially a week since we’ve been in our new house. And what a week.
