On our way to feeling the sunshine.

We are so excited to start out on this journey that we hardly know where to begin, so here goes. I am sitting here at my kitchen table staring out the window into the beautiful sunshine. All I can think about is how I want to be out in the sunshine all the time; not just on my days off like today. I know exactly where I want to be. I want to be back in Bali, sipping coffee at the café nestled among the rice paddy’s. I want to feel the warm breeze while we await our not too sweet, not too savory, green coconut pancakes.

Or, I want to be rocking in the backyard hammock in Maui; just watching the waves crash. You see what I’m getting at right?

We want a life where we are healthy and experiencing life. This is right about the time when everyone tells me that I’m living in a dream world; and that what I want is not realistic.  We believe that those people are wrong. It often feels like society has dictated to us exactly what happiness means. The truth is that happiness is different for each and every person. The goal is to find what makes you happy and go for it.

Our goal is to live a location independent life style and travel/live internationally. Sounds exhilarating right? On top of this, we are also trying to have a baby. I know, we are kind of crazy. We are going to be talking about financial freedom, time freedom, being vegan, travel, and much more.

We want Suitcase and a Playlist to inspire and help anyone and everyone to be happy and fulfill their dreams; even if those dreams are not the same as ours.

We hope you’ll join us on our Pursuit to Happiness. Remember, all you really need is a suitcase and a playlist.
