I’m Chelsea. That’s my husband, Nate. After graduating from college, we got engaged, settled down and quickly discovered that domestic bliss requires a whole host of stuff they didn’t teach at UCLA.
Now, we’re on a mission to share smart ideas for adventurous families. Our purpose is to make everyday life more efficient, and inspire people to seize fun opportunities. Nate offers up hands-on fatherhood and a forthright approach to life’s challenges. Chelsea adds color with creative how-tos and commentary about rugged living in a modern era.

Yep, we love it here in Thailand so much we’re considering settling down on a little farm somewhere quiet and dealing with that too. ‘Course, ours is more likely to be a mixed fruit plantation … everything tasty grows in Thailand!
Technically, BuiltWith tells us it’s a standard WordPress setup, and as always we recommend Dreampress as your best choice for that, free Jetpack Professional and all; and a normal stack of plugins — and good lord, we keep seeing new records for advertising plugins, but this blog really has them coming out its ears!
p dir=”ltr”>So while this blog isn’t overburdened with the exotica we like to fascinate ourselves with, definitely earns solid approval as an engaging lifestyle blog … particularly if your lifestyle involves four children in five years. Now that’s an adventure more epic than anything you’ll ever find on this blog!
