We Are Thankful

We Are Thankful

We wanted to take a moment and express to you how grateful and thankful we are for all of your constant support.


The last couple of months have been a roller coaster. We had been struggling with the blog, feeling like we were just keeping our heads above water. So we decided that we wanted to focus on it more, because really, it’s what we truly love and are passionate about. But. Finally making the decision to take that big leap….. it was a little nerve wracking.


“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” –Jim Rohn


We know that at the end of the day, it’s our decision and no matter what anyone else says we need to do what we feel is best for us. However, once we were pretty set on what we wanted to do, we still discussed it with our closest friends.


I want to take this time to thank Alicia, Kela, Aymara, and MaryAnn. Ladies, you mean the world to me and I appreciate how supportive you’ve been through all of this. I love you guys so much!!


So, what did we decide and what is the plan?


We decided that we are going to work on our blog full time and the plan is to house sit through Trusted Housesitters (if you click on this link you can join too and get 20% off your membership).


All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.


Our apartment lease will soon be up, and we won’t be renewing it. We plan on selling most of our things and putting the remaining bit in a small storage unit. Our essentials we’ll have in our car with us as we travel from house sit to house sit. We’re excited about being able to travel slowly and getting to know new cities as a local (and we’re excited about not paying rent!) But most importantly, we’re excited to have more time to dedicate to our blog because we want to create content that is helpful and inspiring to you, our lovely followers.


We did a Facebook live video to make the big announcement (you can watch it here if you missed it). Since making the announcement, we have been blown away by everyone’s words of encouragement. We’ve gotten private messages, texts, and phone calls, all saying that they’re so happy we’re doing this. Even everyone at my job understood how much this means to us (Danny, you’ve always supported this blog, so thank you!).


You are the author of your own life story. You can start a new chapter anytime you choose.


So basically, we just wanted to say… THANK YOU!! Thank you for reading our blog and following us on on our social media channels. We recently hit 7K followers on Instagram and Twitter so we’re super excited about that as well. So yeah, thank you thank you thank you!!


But besides just saying thank you, we also wanted to give one of you a little something. So, we’re going to be giving away a BTTM luggage tag!

Things To Do In Detroit And Why You Need To Visit Now

When we announced that we would be visiting Detroit, we were not surprised when we were asked, “Why??” We were asked what there was to do in Detroit and if it was safe.
