Hi I'm Heather, I'm a travel junkie.
Two short years ago we were a hot mess,
but something changed...
l will never forget the moment when I actually took a look at my life, and realized it was a shit show.
How's that for honesty...
It was 2015 our oldest had just left home, in an angry exit I might add, our marriage was nothing more than passing in the hall and handing off duties. The sad truth is these events leading up to our breaking point are not that uncommon to many families. One spouse working over 40 hours a week while the other lives in the car as a taxi driver shuffling kids around to various events. In short we were simultaneously living in chaos yet sleepwalking through life.
Oh, and both of us were 45+ pounds overweight. Sound familiar?
Welcome to middle-age, middle class, raising kids in the "American Dream".
It's no wonder so many marriages fail through the dark ages of the relationship 15 plus years into it . While everything looks good on paper (or Instagram) it's enough to make a sane person run for the hills. Don't believe me, just sit down with three people you know that have an ounce of self-awareness and see how hot their life has been going,
We just don't have the time or the energy for things we use to, and our families most often take one for the team before other less valuable causes. It you have the time to work daily on a relationship count yourself lucky. Maybe you just lack the energy to emotional invest. Maybe you don't even care because it is just one more thing to deal with, or fail at. So you close your eyes, and simple check out of what really matters.
We get it, we have been there.
Thankfully our story didn't end there. It was only the beginning and things were about to get good,
Our physical & mental transformation ...
Although there were many events that contributed and even prepared us to escape the toxic cycle we had going on. There are a few that made the biggest impact on salvaging a marriage and opening doors to a life of passion and purpose.
Two major contributing factors which prepared us for world travel
First, we got healthy. Now I'm not saying we became vegan, did daily yoga, and you certainly wouldn't have found me in a bikini. We did however both loose about 40 pounds each, gained mental clarity, a complete transformation in mood and excitement for life again. The energy we felt was astounding, it was like living as a 20 year old again.
If that wasn't enough, many of our previous ailments were lessened if not totally disappeared.
It was The Shizzz let me tell you! And easy peasy for the massive result we both got within a few months.
Thank goodness for science based nutrition or who knows where we would be.
Want to know the deets? Just ask.
We believe everyone should have the chance to live their fullest life, and suffering isn't cool.

Second, with a new lease on life and energy of a 20 year old, we took two separate 10 day trips overseas, alone! Pretty big deal for two people that could take or leave date night two months prior. We began to rewrite what our 40's would look like. Intentional living, together, embracing life, in love. Hence Re Writing 40 was born.
It was during those trips we knew we wanted our kids to experience MORE than what we had previously offered them. Not only more out of life through experiences but more time with those that loved them most, us. Pure uninterrupted family time away from all distractions.
When you want something bad enough, and focus on it long enough, some pretty mind blowing things can go your way.
No one is exclusive to these rights. When you change your mindset, your life will start to enter "the shift" as we like to call it. Shifting into your best self, limitless thinking, and a mind hungry for growth.
This is where those crazy serendipity moments begin to happen.
Change your Thinking, Change Your World. At least that is what we discovered.
