It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

2011 Recap

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We did not want to be in our house very long after retirement with all the responsibilities that goes with it on the later stage of our lives.  We were finding it too taxing with all the work, maintenance, repairs, money and time that had to go into it. There was definitely a better way to retire and enjoy life.  A house and all that went with it was not our way. We made this decision while we were still able to do it.  Our age and health may not be with us down the line and it is important that we fulfill as many of our dreams as we can.


Having less is definitely more. It feels great to be free of a lot of stuff that was holding us back physically and emotionally and in the end has had a very calming and liberating effect on both of us. We have less to worry about and take care of and have more time to do the things we really want to do. Although it was a roller coaster ride of emotion when we were going through it. We realize what is important to us and how we want to spend the rest of our lives together.
Our decision to stay put this winter was a very good one.  It is giving us an opportunity to get to know our apartment and what we needed to do to make it home. We have been feeling the stress lift from us day by day. Staying put for the winter is also a good opportunity to unwind from the roller coaster ride we’ve been on this past year.

We should be ready to proceed with our dream when spring rolls around. Our plans of 6 months in Ontario and possibly other parts of Canada and 6 months in our 5th wheel travelling and living free should come into play at this time.  
So our message to you out there is from our hearts.  Upon retirement live your dreams while you can. Reassess your present lifestyle as it will be changing as your new one begins. Time is so short. Live life to the fullest and enjoy the love and companionship you share together every day where ever you are.  Enjoy your freedom and travel as you experience this wonderful world we live in.  It is a wonder to behold!
Have a Safe and Happy New Year
Don't Drink and Drive!
The life you save may be your own.
It’s about time

A wife was complaining to her husband.
"Look at Mr. Barnes across the road." she moaned. "Every morning when he goes to work, he kisses his wife goodbye.
Why don't you ever do that?"
"Because," the husband said, "I haven't been introduced to her yet."

  2. Happy New Year to the both of you. I cannot second your sentiments quickly enough. We are living proof that life changes in the blink of an eye, therefore, we decided to carry on with our dreams even through adversity. I enjoyed your Christmas Lights Blog throughout the season.
