I know it’s been over a week since we’ve posted anything, but we’ve had a lot going on here and we needed to get it resolved before taking it public. What do I mean? well allow me to explain…
We started here at the Inn a little over 6 weeks ago. Upon accepting this job, Jacob and I had several objectives or desires for our time here; paramount to all of them was our ability to spend time together. What we wanted for that time was to be able to enjoy the great outdoors together and spend some quality time with his family that lives 20 minutes away. Not far underneath these desires was the anticipation of running a bed and breakfast. We were excited for the opportunity to experience life as Innkeepers, to help the establishment grow, and to learn about this kind of business. I was also really excited that there would be a coffee shop since I really wanted to learn how to make good coffee (mostly I just want to make super cool latte art like this:
All of these desires were discussed in our initial interview with the owners and we were assured we’d be able to do those things.
Once we arrived in Mansfield however, we quickly noted differences from what we had been told. While our work load at the Inn was minimal, the 24/7 time expectation didn’t allow us to do the things for which we had moved. Really all we wanted was a freaking day off. SO, we resigned and are temporarily moving to a house on top of this hill:

The best part about this move is that we’ll be right next to his family – I’m pretty stoked about it.
Where will we go after this? Well I guess you’ll just have to stay tuned 😉
