About me; The abbreviated version
Hey! I’m Jess. My husband, Phil, and I quit our jobs in Southern California and moved to Northern Spain in 2021. Amid a global pandemic that caused us to reevaluate what we want out of this precious life, we decided to use our savings and take a year or so of mid-career retirement. We aim to live deeply, and deliberately, and to suck the marrow out of life (to paraphrase Thoreau).
I love trying new food, I enjoy good coffee, and keeping a regular yoga and meditation practice is important to me. It is incredibly difficult for me to stop myself from telling you my entire life story right now, but I will refrain. I hope you’ll learn more about me along the journey.
