Hi, we're Becca and Darren! We believe in living our best story and inspiring you to live yours. We met in 2009 on a whim, walked around talking for hours and have been pretty inseparable ever since. We started out just like any old couple - house in the suburbs, two normal jobs, two dogs - you know, the uzh. Then we got bored. We wanted more, and we're definitely not "sit around and wait" kind of people. We're the "get the hell up and make something happen" people. So we did!
We purchased some land in the Texas hill country, built our own small house and began the enormous task of turning our neglected property into the diamond that we both knew it was. We've grown together and developed interests in diverse fields such as building science, raising chickens, permaculture, healthy living, growing our own food, cooking, sailing, bee keeping and generally getting out of the rat race.
We have a dream that one day we will cast off into the sunset on our sailboat and travel around the world. We want to go to places that every sailor longs for and some that we've never even heard of. We want to see all the different shades of blue of the oceans and as many cultures, climates and landscapes. All while the only thing fixed in our schedule is taking in the sunrise and sunset. We've got a long road ahead of us, and oh so many things to do before then, but we wanted to start documenting our journey towards this dream and our adventures along the way.
