Time for a Change

As many of you know we did something different this January.  We spent two weeks travelling around Peru and then went to LA where we joined the Ruby for 3 weeks. You can read about the cruise here.

The trip to Peru really was life changing.  I really can't explain it easily here how it affected us but it really made us examine our lives and what we want and how to attain it.   

After getting home and back to work and the usual grind of things we both felt uneasy, conflicted, it just did not feel right.  On the fourth day back we both agreed it was time to put into place what we really wanted.  

First step is to sell our condo that we have lived in for 14 years.  That day we contacted 3 agents and we interviewed and chose one within a few days.  Next the process of cleaning the place and getting it ready for showings started.  

Boy you don't realize what you accumulate.  We made numerous trips to the donation center.  We sold a lot of things, we gave away a lot of things.  

I started painting!  Every day after work and every hour of my days off were spent painting.  In all it took 2 full weeks to get the painting finished.

Our large (500 sqft) patio needed cleaning and plants cleaned up and thankfully I think Spring has sprung so it is looking great.

Market is hot here, especially condos and with the new skytrain we are at a perfect time to sell.  

Once it sells we will reassess and figure out what our next step is.  We have some ideas but will let whatever happens happen. 

We are both excited for our next chapter - stay tuned.
