Nat & Sam here 🙂 We have some news.
Nope, this isn’t a baby announcement, but we are definitely up to something.
Early 2016, we really felt the need to break free from our routine lifestyle, at least before we settle down and “grow up”. We have always toyed with the idea of living abroad for some time and seeing what’s outside our little Southern California bubble, but it just didn’t seem smart to uproot our lives and take such a risk. It sounds crazy, right? But crazy is good sometimes. So we are taking a huge, risky, crazy leap of faith. For the entire year of 2017, we will be on the wandering road, in pursuit of learning to live a life of fulfillment and simplicity, and not just doing what’s safe and expected.
All the while we are out and about, we will also be paying it forward by visiting and working with orphanages and senior homes, in attempt to spread love and goodness in a world that so desperately needs it.
Please join us on our once-in-a-lifetime adventure by following us on social media:
To our parents Nada, Jose, Masoudeh & Ahmad: We know it’s not easy to see your children steer away from stability and safety. We want to thank you IMMENSELY. Never in a million years did we think this was possible, and it’s only happening because of you. Despite the extreme worry you must be feeling, you have shown us nothing but love and support. We cherish your advice and we thank you for being the BEST most supporting parents we could ever hope for. We love you more than anything, and we hope to make you proud.
To our brothers Danny and Hesam: Thank you for not just being our brothers, but our best friends. Thank you for pushing us to do this. Thank you for helping us pack. Don’t miss us too much, but when you do, we hope to find you on our doorstep, wherever we are.
A special thanks to Sandra, Bobby, and Sean for helping us move our entire lives into a 10×10 storage unit. I’m sure you are excited to help us move again when we come back 😝
To the rest of you who already knew about our plans and have sent us nothing but positive vibes: From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU. We love you.
And to everyone else: We hope to inspire you to do what makes you happy, and to spread the love.. always always spread the love!
Off we go! First stop: La Paz, Mexico! 🇲🇽
