Our Story So Far
We met in New Zealand in 2005 when we were both working for a large IT firm. Michael left for Europe for a few years and it wasn’t until years later when he returned that our relationship took a turn into something special.
In September 2009, we took an opportunity to work in Silicon Valley and left New Zealand with just a couple of suitcases. We worked contracts so ended up traveling and living in California, South Carolina and Calgary, Alberta.
We got married in early 2011 and had E later that year. Her arrival also marked the end of our nomadic consultant lives and we have been in Texas ever since.
When E and MJ were tiny toddlers, we made a decision to go fulltime RV living. We packed up our house, sold things, donated things, threw away things and moved into a 30 ft travel trailer for over a year.
It was a wonderful experience that we look back on fondly. Aside from the ability to save up to buy our first home together, we also built many wonderful memories together as a family.
Years later, we now live on 5 acres in Austin on the lake. We have amassed goats, dogs, cat and tortoise. While we are comfortable in sticks and bricks again, we are day dreaming of vacations on the road and look to write the next chapter of our RV adventures!
