Adios USA – We’re Heading Home!

After an AMAZING weekend in LA, we’re ready to give our livers a break.

We’re rolling on 2 hours of sleep and staring at 24 hours of travel. We’ll ride American Airlines to Miami, then on to Quito, Ecuador.

We’re heading home.

We’re sad to leave, but at the same time we’re ready to go home to the van and Kiki.

Honestly, I’m not sure I could handle another week in the USA. We’re both exhausted!

Thank you SOOOOOOO much to all our friends and family who made this the best visit ever! We love all of you so much. You made our month.

A super special thanks to Cyndi. You’re the best and we LOVE YOU!

Now please, come visit us in South America.



  1. OK Stevie, click your heels and you’ll be home….you two are amazing. All your family and friends were so happy to see you and will miss you, but there is no place like home. Stevie, you have a beautiful family and Diane and I hope to meet them some day in our travels.
    Be safe, love you and see you soon.

    Tree sorry I didn’t get to meet you! Stevie so glad to see you! Safe travels to you guys! One hot couple!

  24. Stevie i love that colour on you. where did you get that dress? have a great trip home.

    • Hi Liv! Thank you so much! I think pink is my new color. I’ve always been more of macabre kind of girl into the blacks and greys, but I’m digging the rose too. The dress belonged to my dear friend Kerri who was kind enough to let me borrow it for the wedding. She was a lifesaver seeing as how I had no time to pull the maid-of-honor outfit together. Btw, we are in Montanita, Ecuador now…an amazing surf town!!! Add it to your list. xo.
