Dismantling the Carefully Curated Life

It isn’t easy to put together a beautiful life.  It’s organically formed friendships, finding just the right hairdresser, knowing which coffee shop has the fastest drive thru, waiting 3 seasons for your peony to bloom and knowing your babies have a village just outside their front door.

For as long as I can remember, I have used all my energy to create a comfortable, fulfilling, responsible and enjoyable life.  I am about to give most of it up.   I am leaving the perfect suburb and moderate weather for the adventure of a lifetime.  Life abroad with my little family.  Pray for me.

As I sell my belongings and make promises to keep in touch, of course I wonder if I am doing the right thing.  I am hoping that many of the people I love will take this journey with me, here or in person.   They are the reason that my life is beautiful.

My name is Meghan, and this is the journey of our little family who left perfect suburban America for tropical Cartagena, Colombia. I plan on keeping it truthful: the good, the bad and everything in between. Follow our expat life, raising little kids in a new culture, while trying to keep ahold of our roots.
