In 2004, Summer Bicknell was a corporate drone.  She was living in Nashville, TN, working too many hours at a dissatisfying IT job.  After eating a Mexican popsicle – called a paleta – Bicknell downsized her life, quitting her job, selling her house, moving to Mexico then Durham, North Carolina.  She hasn’t looked back.
