That's how Joy Stang, from Saskatchewan, starts off her blog, called It's Just Joyous. This is a blog I recommend to everyone interested in traveling the TYKE way, because Joy, her husband, and three kids so completely epitomize our philosophy of making the Big Trip happen. Check out the older entries, which describe the family's planning and preparation for living in France's Tarn, then continue with the more recent entries that describe what it's like to put your kids in school in another country, and really live someplace else.
Joy emailed me today and said, "My husband and I particularly like your phrase "living deliberately". It quite perfectly sums up how we have chosen to live to save to come here, and how much more deliberately we will be setting up our lives in Canada upon our return, so that we may return here again. (And again, and again...)"
