This is a blog about the journey of the Hadley family from the west cost to a new lifestyle on the east coast. After a 20 year engineering career Judy exited corporate life as a result of a company split. While it was not her choice at the time, it opened up the possibility to pursue a new lifestyle that our family had been thinking about for a long time. We promptly sold our hobby urban farm in beautiful Santa Rosa California and said a tearful goodbye to a huge community of wonderful supportive friends and family. We traded our urban lifestyle for a more simple rural lifestyle in an intentional community in western Massachusetts.
