What is Good Life Xplorers about?
This blog started as a personal project to journal our travels after I quit my career in Finance and was quite lost as to who I would become. I believed my whole life that only a successful career would bring me happiness and I was very attached to my accomplishments as a career woman.
Thankfully I also had other passions: travel and cooking and eating good food, so I called this blog Good Life Xplorers, as an ode to everything that makes life good and worth exploring.
In addition to travel and recipes, the blog grew into a lifestyle blog as we welcomed our children into the world and made the decision to homeschool them.
So now you can find a plethora of topics from travel guides, easy recipes, homeschool resources, and everything in between.
And you might be asking: “Did you find happiness outside work?”. And the answer is a resounding 1000% yes! I am the happiest person I know and the happiest I’ve ever been!
I hope this blog inspires you to be happy and present, design the life you want, challenge the status quo and define success on your own terms. And of course explore places near and far, with kids or solo, at any age and income.
I am a BIG city girl (20 million people big), who became a lover of the outdoors and embraced simple living. I call Colorado home for now, but my heart belongs on the road.
I met and married my husband after only 9 months of dating and we’ve been married for 17 years! Yes, I know, it’s a loooong time! I am still shocked every time I realize this… Never in a million years, would I have thought I’d be married to anyone that long in my life… or have two kids… or be a stay-at-home mom… or be retired at 40. My life trajectory just goes to show you that you should never say never and also that life sometimes works out in mysterious ways!
In 2022, my husband and I reached a huge life milestone of retirement. We achieved this goal with lots of hard work, planing and diligence. We focused on “experiences and not things” for over a decade of our lives. And we believe that if we did it, you can too!
Our future plans include slow travel and living abroad as our children grow.
