Meet Your Guides
Hi there! Thanks for stopping by and welcome to This Unbound Life’s Blog! We’re so glad you stopped by and we can’t wait to share all our adventures with you. So, who are we exactly? Well, I’m not sure anyone can answer that fully, but here’s the basics to get you started:
I'm Connie, and my fiance is Daniel. The goofy boxer dog is Tyson, aka Bubba, and the pit bull mix is Brixie. Once upon a time, I traveled the lands with just my trusty boxer dog by my side. It was me and Bubba against the world for a long time. We road tripped, ran a boutique out of the back of a box truck and had some great adventures. Then one day we met Daniel. Me and him, we’re polar opposites, but you know what they say… So, from there, our lives pretty quickly became a party of three.
We never could have guessed where life would take us the day we met. But, the adventures were constant and always filled with fun. From weekend trips to Santa Barbara, desert excursions to art colonies, lake trips, and mountain hikes. Any time we were free, we were on the hunt for fun.
Party of Four
One of our favorite things to do was make the thirteen-hour cross country trek from our home in California to my hometown of Durango Colorado. We did it twice a year, every year. It was during one of our first Colorado trips that we met a special needs pup who needed some love. We adopted her from the LaPlata County Humane Society and just like that our party of three became four. Through thick and thin we've nursed a sickly, death-row pit mix back to good health. We've watched her transform into a loving, silly and above all healthy girl. And, we wouldn't trade her for the world, though sometimes I think Tyson wishes we would.
Adventure of a Lifetime
Now, after years of visiting Durango, we are about to embark on the biggest adventures of our lives. No more wishing and waiting. We're officially Colorado residents! Join us as we transition from the bustle, and comfort of city life to rugged country life. We’ve traded in a two-story house in the southern California suburbs for a 20 ft camper in the mountains of Colorado.
I’m a Colorado native, Daniel is a city boy through and through. As for the pups, Bubba is my city boy and Brixie is Daniel’s Colorado girl, so I guess we both have a type. To sum up, you have two tough and rugged ladies and two city boys who are tough enough to learn the ropes.
We invite you to follow along as we figure out how to do things like grow a garden. I’ve killed air plants so that should be fun. Laugh as we learn to hunt, fish and gather wild foods. I did these things as a child, do you think it’s like riding a bike? We’ll be remodeling our camper into a tiny home fit to survive the Rocky Mountain winter. Neither of us has any carpentry skills by the way.
In our day jobs, I’m a content creator, copywriter, and digital marketer. Daniel is an electrical engineer. But in our free time, we’ll be ready for any adventure we can come up with. There’ll be off-road journeys, tool reviews, camping trips, recipes, trails, tips and oh yeah, a wedding!
We hope you enjoy the journey as much as we do, and we would love to hear all about your adventures too. See you in the land of the wild and don’t forget to live your Life Unbound!
