About

Back in the day, way back in the day, there is a tiny chance you may have known us for our home improvement blog, Making a House a Home. We enthusiastically DIYed our way through 6,000 sqft of our Tudor in New York for five years. It's there we fell in love with well designed spaces. That home was the reason our travel was put on hold. Actually that home was the sole destructor of our road trip through France and Italy for 8 weeks, otherwise known as our honeymoon. We closed on the same day our flight left and we wanted to be there for the closing of our first home. Oh! If we could go back in time, we would have made another decision.

We had a child in that house, a boy. We named him Atlas. We took off for a year to practice parenting, uninterrupted. It's been almost 6 years now, and we haven't gone back to "work". We had some bumps, some family decisions to make, and being people who love hard and fully - our plan to travel with our family has been pushed back a year, and then another.

So in the in-between we created a vacation place for others, The Rich Hippies House. We got to make a pretty space for others to enjoy while we work on our big, gigantic, massive, life changing plan to leave the States in the Summer of 2019 to explore the world with our boy.

This page became kind of a place holder while we were working out the details, but now we have a plan we love. Excitement creeps into our every day while we scheme and plan all the things we want to experience and watch our son experience.

In January 2019, the purge begins. We bid farewell to our belongings, piece by piece until we are down to a suitcase each. Then we go. We can't wait to share what we come up with!
