Life Happens… and things really do change.
Due to the economic turn of events, from September 2006 thru present day, small & BIG businesses were closing their doors left and right… In November 2008, Mikes was one of them. From then to September 2009 our world went thru A LOT of turmoil. Stress and depressing times have filled our lives where the fun and adventurous ones once were. Mike spent the winter of 2008 & 2009 in Breckenridge, we had hoped that this would be the first step in the right direction to our Big Dream Mountain life. Oh we had some great times on the slopes that winter, but it wasn’t the same…
In the fall of 2009 as we prepared for Mike to spend another winter in Colorado, we found a condo for rent with a beautiful view of the town and the ski runs of Breckenridge. We began the packing process and tried to figure how much time I could spend out there with the holiday breaks and vacation time I had. We had figured there would be substantial time spent together as we had done the previous year, with me going back and forth from Arkansas to Colorado. It wasn’t the best solution, but it was the only one that we had at the time.
Then on September 25, 2009, a solution we had never dreamed of came to be. Most people would consider it a huge door being slammed in their face. As the saying goes… when God closes a door, he always opens a window.
That day I lost my job of almost 10 years. Due to these economic times that got Mike to Colorado, now the window of opportunity for me had opened up as well.
So instead of just packing a small u-haul for Mike’s things, we rented a large truck to move us both in the direction of our dreams. Though our family and wonderful friends are still in Arkansas… it will always be the home of our roots. But the home of our hearts is in the mountains of Colorado. They had been calling Mike for over 34 years, me only 6. Folks we are Movin-On to Big things and Big dreams, and also
VERY BIG ADVENTURES!!!
