We were living fully and we wanted more. Returning to Portland the fall of 2013, we sold our house, packed up, and moved to California. Because our kind and generous friends, Kelley and Martha, had offered us a place to stay we were suddenly living in Carmel Valley. We spent the next four years exploring how to live fully, without the daily grind of a job. Or, as David put it, trying to answer the question, “What did we want to be when we grew up? “
Because we had long been fiscally responsible, we carried no bad debt and had put aside a modest amount for retirement. And we inherited a modest amount from family. We weren’t rich but we were thrifty. We were in our early 60’s, healthy and looking for new adventures and challenges. We’d like to share our discoveries with you, to help you live more fully too.
