What brought this on after we swore we'd never live in a house again? There were several reasons for us to come off the road - health, logistics and a few frustrations in living in a used motor home. It was nothing major enough to cause us to want to stop traveling, but we landed in ABQ and fell in love with this Land of Enchantment.
I had been to New Mexico previously, on a short girls trip and loved it. Dave fell as much in love as I did and we decided to make our home here. At first, it was a maybe, but before too long we found the house of our dreams and the decision was made.
So, what does this mean for our nomadic lifestyle? We plan, eventually, to purchase a small travel trailer so we can continue to travel and spend more time in State and National Parks. Travel is in our blood and we'll never stop. But Albuquerque called to our hearts and we fell in love.
What will happen to Our Simple Life website? We'll continue, of course, in a different format. There are so many beautiful places to visit in New Mexico that we want to share with friends and family. And when our travels start back up, of course we'll share those as well.
In the next week, we'll be making some changes to the website. Our Journeys will remain just that, and we'll build on that as we start traveling again. Our New Mexico adventures will be on a separate page. We'll talk about changes we'll make to the house as well as local trips. Just check the tabs on the home page and we believe that it will be self explanatory.
We are thankful to all of you who have shared our journey these last three years, and hope that you'll enjoy what comes next. And we invite you to come visit this beautiful area!
