Sometimes I think about

picking up and leaving. With Mike and the fur babies, of course. We’re about to be young newlyweds (at least in 9 months we will be) without children. What’s keeping us here? I mean, besides Mike’s steady job, my new “big-girl” job, and our families? I read blogs every day written by beautiful young women who live with their husbands/boyfriends in totally awesome places. I mean, I grew up in Europe. (Lawlz, how pretentious am I?) I just hate that the majority of the time I lived there was before I picked up photography as a serious hobby.

It’d make me so happy to be able to spend a year or two with Mike, galavanting around foreign cities and exploring the huge world that we live in. Clearly we don’t have the money to live such a life of wanderlust, but that doesn’t mean I don’t dream about it.

We’ve talked about moving to Wyoming in a few years when/if we can afford it. But then I think about how disappointed our families would be to be so far away from us. At the same time, I feel like it’s more important for Mike and I to do and see things that we probably won’t have the chance to do or see once we’ve “settled” down.

Maybe it’s just me being irresponsible. Oh well. A girl can dream.

    Your not being irresponsible at all! As you said, you and Mike are a new, young couple, and to have such a dream and to share such an experience of travel and adventure would be amazing for you both! In addition, if you are going to do it, now is the time, before you guys (if you plan to) start a family etc. And I want to hear more about you growing up in Europe! Thats amazing!!
