As any couple with kids knows, life sometimes gets in the way. It seems like there is always something going on that pulls you in different directions. The years go by and the ominous ‘graduation of the last child’ looms in the future.
This can be a scary time and an exciting time for both the child and the parents. All of a sudden the parents realize that their time has come! They realize that their job is coming to an end and they are now free from parenting burdens and responsibilities.
My husband and I are high school sweet hearts. We have been married for 26 years. We grew up in two very small neighboring towns in the heart of Alaska.
This is our story about rediscovering ourselves without our children. Who we are as individuals and as a couple and not ‘(childs name) mom or dad’ or parents.
Follow us as we explore the lighter side of being an adult through travel and culinary adventure. Whether we take an epic trip around the globe, a romantic weekend getaway or just a simple date night, we will always have something going on.
If you enjoy the recounting of our adventures, let us know, we welcome the feed-back!
“A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints.” — Wilfred Peterson
