I’m not much of a country fan per se, but my wife is. One morning, I left her at home with our two screaming kids and walked out the door for work. I jumped into my leased Volkswagen Passat and I couldn’t help but feel something was wrong as I pulled onto the highway for the 45 minute commute. I was having real trouble leaving her there alone to deal with that. I was missing her and our kids… this wasn’t what it was supposed to be like, right?
I found the YouTube video for that song, and messaged the link along with the lyric, “Baby, come give me a kiss!” I was hoping to merely send a slight giggle to my overwhelmed other half. Something to cheer her up. But it was her response that resonated more with me and what I had been feeling that whole drive in: “Want to sell all our stuff and live in an airstream?”
Yes. Yes, I did. That was the answer…
And so this is what we are doing.
