We all have our favorite blogs that we follow, some of them religiously… eagerly anticipating the next post to see what excitement besets the blogger in question.
I was captivated by many family travel blogs during our research and preparation for our trip and in fact have made new friends exchanging information and ideas about traveling as a family to different parts of the world. Most of these families however I knew nothing about, my only contact or knowledge coming from their daily, weekly, or monthly blog posts.
When their trips were over the posts would often just stop! No further information or even much of a build up to the day they stopped posting. I can understand why this happens…in fact, it is probably “more normal” than making a formal post about a final post
This post will serve as our last formal post.
We began the blog a year and a half ago – that is a long time to write about your life let me tell you. Like most things in life there were highs and lows trying to maintain the blog but there were more bright moments than not.
What I enjoyed most about writing the blog was the people we met through it and the process of recording some incredible moments in the lives of our family. Gina and I are incredibly blessed for having the opportunity to travel with our kids and having these memories available to our friends and family to remember is very, very cool and something I know we will cherish for all of our years.
I think it is appropriate to thank everyone that has participated in this journey, either by emailing or commenting…or simply by taking the time from your busy lives to visit our blog.
So Thank You!
We returned to the U.S. 5 weeks ago, visiting Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, and Kentucky. We can say that the fall in the South East is amazing and recommend the Blue Ridge Parkway to anyone in the neighborhood…beautiful. Our focus is on finding a place to “settle down”, finding schools for the kids, and plugging back into life in the U.S..
Our plans have changed from 2 years ago, it won’t be Ecuador but some state in the U.S. that we settle – but the focus to simplify our lives and spend more time as a family is still at the forefront of our decision making.
I am guessing that this will not be the last post, just the official post to let everyone know that our focus has changed, and if updates are warranted we will get them posted. We will also continue to receive emails and comments for the foreseeable future.
We have a couple of other blogs in the works that revolve around other aspects of our lives and as these are finished we will post links for anyone interested in following these escapades.
So…thanks again for all of your support!
Sean, Gina, Grant, Genevieve (Gigi)
