I recently saw a word that has totally caught my attention and seems to be stuck smack in the middle of my brain.

The word is “Coddiwompling”

The word coddiwomple is English slang, defined as “to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination”.

I think this describes our last two years in a nutshell. When we decided to make the move to Portugal it was not so much the desire to live in Portugal but more the desire to leave California. Do not get me wrong there are a lot of things that we did not want to leave ( family, our house, the food etc) but there were A LOT of things that we were not aligned with anymore as well. We had a deep down gut feeling it was time to move on. We both knew that there was something out there waiting for us. I can with 100% honesty say, we are chipping away at that feeling everyday. Each day Mike and I discover something big or small within us that has made us smile more or enriched our minds.

We love to talk about new destinations all the time. We love Portugal but we also love the idea of taking this journey of life where it leads us. We do not have the desire for roots anymore. Our desires lay within our hearts and our adventurous soles. We no longer feel the need for material things but instead want to trust the power of yes.

I am sure that some of our coddiwompling will be filled with bad choices but I can promise you this, it is purposeful.

Now that was some deep shit for 5:30am in the morning lol

May your day ahead be filled with laughter and love
