“Beginnings are usually scary, endings are usually sad, but it's what's in the middle that counts.”
It’s officially been over two months since Bree & I got back from our Incredible Journey. Somehow, the acclimation back to “real” life has made the adjustment period fly by. Not that we’re completely adjusted, just that the time period seems to have gone very fasssttt.
Our trip ended along the Fort Bragg coast of Northern California, sleeping in the “Navigator,” (our dependable car) overlooking the bluffs down to the clear & cold Pacific Ocean. It seemed like a proper testament that we’d officially made it coast-to-coast. A sleepless, cold testament- but one just the same. Have to say, for as little sleep we got- it was still really nice listening to the crashing waves and looking at the stars to bring our Summer adventure to a close. It was an amazing Summer full of so much beauty, different landscapes, National Parks, cities, architecture, family, friends, quality time together, hiking, camping, eating, drinking, etc. etc.
So here we are, back in the beautiful Bay Area of California and the realm of everyday stresses. As easy as it is to adjust to NOT working- it’s much less fun getting used to the jobs/money/bills side of life again. As Joe Biden would say, it’s a bunch of malarkey.
In the meantime, the brainstorming has already begun for the next adventure (France, anyone?). Because what better way to get over an adventure, then to get under another one- or something like that.
