I was doing some digging online last night with the tease to the announcement, and saw Brad updated his LinkedIn back to Jacksonville, and she hasn't had her wedding ring on in photos for a while, so I was wondering if this was where it was headed.
The separation is a surprise, but the trip to Asia is. Wonder if she'll shutter the shop for the time being or if someone in her family is going to keep up with incoming orders and just not do new design.

I dug & found that too. I was hoping it wasn't a separation announcement, but am not surprised. I hope she has a good trip, I'm curious to see the direction of the blog. Do you think she makes enough money to support herself off the shop?

I don't know. But she has a graphic design degree and actually knows about InDesign, large format printing, and isn't just a blogger who learned enough to do her blog and get by. So I think she could easily do freelance graphic design on the road to supplement her income as she needs it to.

While I wouldn't replicate some of the stuff she's done in her homes in mine, she's very talented and I hope this works out for her.

She also didn't mention her cat and I don't recall seeing him in photos lately, so I hope everything is going okay for her fur baby. Separations can be hard on animals too.

I've actually been wondering for a couple of months if they were separated (things she's said, lots of trips seemingly by herself or with friends) and I've actually always had a feeling they would end up splitting. I don't typically speculate on the relationships of people I don't know but when I first started reading, I noticed a lot of "Brad didn't want to do this" or "I had to make Brad help with this" and the way I read it was just kind of like a red flag. The whole one way trip to Bangkok was a huge surprise to me though. I'm very curious about the animals as well as the house and what will happen to it. Mostly, I just hope she can find what she's looking for.

Wow! I was not expecting that! I just split with my long time boyfriend, so I totally understand the need for a fresh start and a chance to re-evaluate your life. I have 2 dogs and a job, so I can't just take off to Bangkok like her, but I'm looking forward to following her journey. I hope she shares her travels on her blog. I wonder what's going to happen to her house?

Yeah, she's worked professionally as a graphic designer before she quit to do her thing full time, so I'm sure she could get enough freelance work to supplement her income. 

I knew Jenna when she lived in Jacksonville, and I can't remember specifically what she said, but I always remember feeling like her marriage to Brad was really f**king weird. I wish I could remember what set off that alarm in my head.

I didn't know Jenna Sue had a thread here!

I was anticipating that the announcement would be a separation, unfortunately.  Just got that vibe from her recent Instagram posts.  Looks like their sixth anniversary passed pretty recently.  Moving to Florida when your spouse resides in CA is a heck of a separation so I assume they aren't holding out hope for a reconciliation.

I, too, wonder what they are doing with the house.  Obviously he has already moved across the country, and that is a larger home than what I personally would want to live in alone.  Given that she is taking off to Thailand I wonder if they are selling?

I hope she finds happiness!

They were renting out the Florida house when they moved to California, so I wouldn't be surprised if she rents her house out to either one of her sisters or just rents it out. She said they had good renters, so if you have a nice experience as a landlord you're more likely to want to keep doing it. A fully furnished house (won't need the furniture in Thailand) with all her modifications will bring in good income, and if I remember right they got the house for a really good deal because it needed improvements. It's probably a good investment to hang on to the house for a while and have income property. I wonder if he gets the Florida house and she gets the California house.

It seems like she has a solid bond with her sisters, so that will help her get through this quite a bit.

I really hope she ends up happy and better off. She's had moderate success as a blogger and she stayed true to her roots and didn't go off the blogger deep end, so I'm in her cheering corner.

I like her a lot and I was really surprised by this announcement. Although I had also noticed her abundance of solo trips lately. I'm really curious to find out what is happening with her house and whether she has a time limit for this trip or if she just plans to go until she feels better. In a way I am jealous that she can take off on a trek like that because I would love to do it. I wish her nothing but the best.

Just discovered her today, because of this thread. (Thanks!) I really like her blog and projects, but hate what they're going through. Her trip sounds amazing; I'm adding this to my favorites …. she said she'll be documenting her journey.

Was just looking at her guest bathroom pics and post, wow. Very cool how she did the tub. Looking forward to reading the rest of the blog. thumbsup

I just saw a headline that there was an explosion in Bangkok and 16 people are dead.  I don't know if Jenna Sue has landed there yet, but I am thinking of her!  Hoping she'll be able to stay safe and things won't be too chaotic for her while she navigates a new city.

Ugh, I like Jenna and her blog, but can her GODDAMN FONT just die already? angry

She made it. I don't think I'd be brave enough to do that by myself.
