After nearly two years of "life on the road" -- consisting of stops throughout the Front Range of Colorado and into Kansas and Missouri for days, weeks, or months at a time -- Sean and I are ready to exit the semi-gypsy life and begin the next phase of our adventure together.
Somewhere around the time when I was studying Shakespeare and tending bar for unruly fraternity bros, I began forming an image in my mind of what my wildly successful adult life would look like.
I have to admit, this lifestyle is pretty great. Living in the mountains, far from the rat-race and all it implies, definitely has its perks. But, such is life, everything isn't always just sunshine and flowers.
In fact, some days are really hard.
