Hi you guys!! Welcome to our brand shiny new site – The Grape Soda Club!
It’s taken us a couple of months to pack up everything over at Eat.Fly.Love., our old WordPress site, and haul it over here. And in the meantime, we were wrestling with branding ideas, whether or not to keep the old name, and where we wanted to go in the future. I won’t promise we’ve got that all sorted, but we’re ready to start this adventure!
Why the Grape Soda Club?
Well, to start with, our founding authors over here are big Disney fans. Okay, kind of crazy Disney fans. Crazy enough to brave the House of Mouse during its most crowded time of year because we love it. We were married at Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort. And on top of that, we love adventure. So when a love of Disney and a love of adventure collide, what better inspiration could you find than Carl and Ellie from Disney’s Up?
And since this site is now collaborative – I will still be doing most of the writing and photos, but you’ll see Scott pop up contributing stories, videos, and graphics – it seemed like rebranding was in order so that it could capture both our interests.
“You and me, we’re in a club now…”
One of the reasons we decided to start collaborating was the number of questions we got from friends on how we managed to travel so much while holding down full-time jobs and handling home improvement – so we’re here to share what we’ve learned through almost five years of marriage, roaming the globe, and setting up house in three different states.
In short, we feel like we’ve learned how to bring the best of traveling and getting settled in new homes together. We’ve learned to explore and find both the essentials and new favorite places quickly, and we’ve learned how to bring the spirit of adventure more into our daily lives! Adventure is out there – whether it’s far away or right there in your own backyard – and we’re going to share with you all the ways we’ve discovered it!
We’re looking forward to sharing all of that here with you!
Exicted? We sure are! And we’re glad you’re here and hope you enjoy the Grape Soda Club!
Let us know what you think – and let us know what else you’d like to see!
