We returned to Texas and immediately began another two weeks of renovation projects. We then had a great opportunity to join my parents on a trip to Alaska and enjoyed some wonderful time with them. We returned to some of the same places we had been before, and enjoyed seeing several new places as well! We were in a similar transition period at that time as we are now so it was nice to return to that crossroad and reflect on our experiences.
We are now preparing to do a quick turn around and head to the much anticipated, Ecuador. A place neither of us have ever been before, but one that has filled our hearts and our minds for the last several months as we have prepared for this move. Now we have to go figure out how to pack for a 6 month journey to a place we've never been before, in 2 hiking backpacks! Wooohooo!
