So there we were, living in Folsom, California as newlyweds ready to start a foundation for our future. (We only lasted 8 months, but here it was in a nutshell!)
Accommodations: We purchased a 28ft princess palace (aka a travel trailer) in order to live minimally and save to the max. We loved our little home and it served us properly before we sold it to move.
Working: I dove right back into the world of beauty by reopening my hair salon under the new name of “Hair Gypsy”. My loyal clients were so eager to support the return and helped get me back in action!
Matt continued his photography and videography by shooting family photos, senior portraits, weddings and special events. You can check out that gallery by clicking here!
Both of us got a rejuvenating job coaching at Tricks Gymnastics, Matt was working in the Tag program and I was coaching the artistic gymnastics.
(Fun fact: I worked at Tricks from 1997-2005 coaching the competitive team!)
On the side, we also picked up dog sitting which turned into our favorite little paw escape. These pups were so much fun and turned into family!
When we weren’t working, you could usually find us (mainly Matt) on a bike exploring the popular trails that surround the Lake and extend to outer cities.We also took advantage of being surrounded by some incredible destinations and often took day or weekend trips to explore!
Lake Tahoe!Santa Cruz!
San Francisco!Although Northern California has beautiful scenery, unlimited career options and some of my most favorite people in the world… it just wasn’t feeding our souls. A tough decision but a solid one as we decided to move to the Panhandle of Florida.
Just before packing up to move across the states we found out that we were soon to be a party of 3… What a beautiful addition to our already exciting life!
Next journey… road trip back to the East Coast!
Keep exploring! As you can see, 8 months brought a lot of wonderful news!
