How A Krispy Kreme Donut Changed Our Lives – Why We Started Home Sweet Road

Family of 5 sells [Almost] Everything and Hits the Road
The Man hit 40 this year.  He has always been a responsible guy who values taking good care of our family and working hard.  Sometimes too hard.  Yes, that’s possible.  Finding ourselves as new entrepreneurs with a tech business working 70 hours per week we knew something had to give.

There is something about turning 40 that causes you to look at your life and evaluate whether you are where you want to be.  Having lived in Kansas City, MO for the past five years we were craving more outdoor adventures and knew our boys needed to connect with nature in a greater way.  We were hungry for the mountains.

We would need to sell our house and it wouldn’t be easy but moving WAS doable.  After visiting some friends in Colorado our mind was made.  We were mountain bound!  Our home sold just two days after listing it and the ball began to roll.

A Craving for Krispy Kreme
Usually when you plan a move you have something lined up on the other side.  What kind of flaky people don’t have a place to land with a mere 10 days to go time?

It all started with a craving.  I woke up after a long Saturday of packing, rolled over, looked at The Man and told him I needed a Krispy Kreme donut!  Taken aback by my uncharacteristic craving, he jumped at the opportunity and ran with it.  He quickly hopped out of bed, woke up the kids, and we all piled into Ol’ Faithful.

It might have been the sugar or just our desire for adventure but somewhere between downing a couple donuts and driving home we had formulated a plan.  We would stop looking for a house and plan a road trip.  A long one.  One that had no end date.

At the core I am a free spirit and David is up for taking risks under the right circumstances.   We are also very intentional about how we live our lives and raise our children.  Only time will tell if a decision made during a sugar high will make us crash and burn or take us to new heights!

Stay tuned….
