90 Day Checklist

We are launching in 90 days!!!

I have to admit, that I am starting to freak out a little bit. The whole idea of leaving everything behind and starting a life where all of my decisions are my own sounds super cool, but I’m starting to feel some of the less pleasant meanings as well.

I am leaving EVERYTHING behind. That is a lot of stuff to sell, throw away, back-up, and cancel. I am starting an entirely new life. Not only will I be physically in a new place, but my financial and social situations will change too. I need to figure out how I am going to make money, spend money, keep in contact with old friends, and make new friends. ALL of my decisions are my own. I need to plan and book all of our flights, hotels, visas, and adventures. This whole freedom thing sure sounds like a lot of work.

Thankfully, I am a dedicated list maker. Here is our to-do list for the next 30 days.
