Quick Moving Update

Quick Moving Update

Hey all! Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but life has been more chaotic that we initially thought it would be. We’ve been busy buying boxes, selling furniture, and trying to cram in last minute visits to some of our favorite places. I (Katarina) finished up work on June 23, and I’ve since been packing up a storm and watching This Is Us and crying. Oh, and applying for jobs. In fact, I’m headed out at 4 in the…

Reclaiming Adventure

Reclaiming Adventure

When Colin was growing up, “adventure” was a bad word. Get lost? It’s an adventure! Getting caught in freezing rain and almost sliding off the road? Another adventure! Car died in a blizzard? You get the picture… It got so bad, that Colin’s family is a little superstitious about that word. You certainly wouldn’t declare something an adventure before heading out, or else you were probably dooming that trip in some horrible way or another. The few times I tried…
