In 1920 the 19th Amendment was ratified and gave American Women the Right to Vote. After many decades of sacrifice it finally brought an end to the U.S. Women’s Suffrage Movement. I will forever be grateful to the women before me that paved the way for me and my daughter. Yes, I took my turn and voted today, and will always take my right to vote.

Let me give you some back story. Three years ago Chloe was born. We had a lot going on at the time and soon after her arrival realized we needed to change some of our priorities and reassess how we wanted to live our life and where we wanted to live our life. We set several goals that year and started the process of achieving those goals. One of the major goals that were set at that time was to sell off our alpaca herd and move off the mountain back into town and civilization. (Ok for you new followers yes we had a herd of alpacas and did the whole living in the country thing scooping the poop.) This whole alpaca thing was going on at the same time as our thriving dental office. Long story short throw a baby into the mix and you are in over your head. We did manage to find homes for our entire alpaca herd which came out to around 40 of them when we got out of the business. We also moved into town at the end of 2010.
The dental office has been for sale for 3 years. Of course when we decided to make some major life changes that was around the same time the economy tanked. So thru out the 3 years we had very few nibbles of buyers interested in the office. Mentally we were kind of prepared that it would take many years to sell our dental practice. So when a dentist from Idaho all of a sudden was interested in our office we did not think much of it. Then step by step he continued his interest and after several months poof we sold it.
Ever since Chloe was born I have been itching to move closer to the ocean. The majority of my life I have lived near the ocean and did not realize what a big part of me needs to be near it. I have so many fond memories of my child hood and all the time spent at the beach and I want that for Chloe. Now New Mexico is great for sunshine and big blue skies but it is very land locked and very dry. Chris and I have lived in New Mexico for 10 years now and we are both so excited to move to a new region of the U.S.
