I know that post title is a bit dramatic, but that’s how I feel.
Some of you know what’s been going on with me, but most don’t.
I was feeling stuck and stagnant.
Suffice it to say, something had to change, and it turns out- we are leaving Austin & hitting the road!
It was always my dream to move back to Austin. Going to college here, there was no better place…and in so many ways, that is still true. Austin is a town with a big city feel. Great restaurants, great music, big festivals, rad people. I will miss it so.
But the other part of Austin was the traffic, the mosquitoes and the weather had been sucking!!!
There was also other drama…
I know most people will think we are crazy for giving up what we have in Austin. And it is no small thing. We built a life here with friends and neighbors we love, a house we made a home over 3 years…and yes, the house was amazing. (see I’m already using past tense). Beautiful lines, amazing light, badass pool and pool house and roof decks…
But the house isn’t what makes the home, it’s the people. Our favorite memories here will be with all the people we love, and with our dogs! and we can take all of that with us when we leave.
More and more I’ve been asking myself, ” Do we need all the ‘stuff’?” Is that going to make me happy?
I understand both rapidly growing minimalist and tiny house movements.
So we’re leaving it all behind, selling our beloved home, and we’re gonna shack up in our Airstream and travel the United States and Canada over the new few months.
aquahaus is gonna take on a whole new meaning… from almost 3000SF to just under 150SF!
Over the next few months, I’m hoping to re-discover parts of myself I lost, spend time with my amazing husband and puppy babies. We’re taking the Road to Freedom…
Hope you’ll follow our crazy adventures on instagram, and speaking of which, I need your help!
or feel free to suggest your own!!
We need some serious crowdsourcing help. I would love to hear your recs! Any places we should hit up? Things/ places we should not miss? Things we should skip?
If I’m coming to a city near you, hit me up! I would so love to feature you on my blog and have you show me the best of your town!
And if I’m not, holler at me anyways! Maybe I should be coming to you!
