If you're just hitting up our blog for the first time, it probably means you got our Christmas Card! HEY! I wanted to explain our blog a little and share a little bit more about our adventure we are about to embark on. I've blogged off and on for several years. If you click here, you can get access to my others blog pages. I've combined all of our info here, in this one spot to share with the world. As I'm sure you know, we've got a lot happening, all of the time. Between raising 3 boys, navigating through widowhood, dealing with grief, Jakes KT Syndrome and all the other business, we have decided to hit the road, full time, living in our 30ft travel trailer we are in the process of renovating. Yep, I'm pretty much that crazy. So, on this blog, I share it all. Or shall I say, we share it all. We also podcast every Wednesday. We share our story not just so our family and friends can follow our adventures, but to give others hope. From those deep dark places, we have been, and come out of. So, as we embark on this next chapter of our lives, we hope you enjoy reading all about it, seeing pictures we share and listening along to our podcast.
We hope you all have a very very Merry Christmas!
Christmas cards are addressed! Boom! There is such an immense feeling of achievement in this daunting task. Why do it? Everyone sees our crazy kids faces on Instagram just about daily. A warning to those recieving these cards, there are no formal images on them. We do have time to take everyone elses pictures, but ours sorta hit the sidelines and in the end, a tripod and clicker just don't do the magic that Travis gives everyone. One year, we will hire a professional, maybe, okay probably not. Enjoy our not posed, totally random images on our cards again this year. We are addressing our cards with the intent of sharing with those who don’t yet know, that we will be nomads come June 2017. Living life on the road, trailer in tow and traveling the United States. Our Christmas cards direct our family and friends to this blog. Where they can follow our adventures. So, blog and share I must.
We've really jumped into renovating the trailer once again. The wall between the living space and our bedroom is gone. Then we got crazy and took out the bed and storage in the front room completely. Gutted it. Nothing left but walls. From there, I shared my love of Pinterest with Travis, as he forced his face to not give me the eye roll. A lifted bed with drawers and storage under is what I wanted. Steps at the end of the bed leading up to the raised bed. Please?! Its not too much to ask, right? For our small bodies and short legs, it's perfect. No leaning over a bed or crawling on top to reach our tiny bit of clothing storage space we were once given. We could just reach under the bed, open a drawer and slide a cabinet. Oh, and then, honey, could you please add a slide out desk. He must love me. He doubts himself too much, because I’m not asking if I didn’t have complete confidence in him and know he could build it better than I imaged. No pressure honey.
We attempted to work on it together last Friday. But my staring at him while he tried to plan out in his mind how this was actually going to happen, didn’t make for a good combination. So I think I'll just leave the rest of the construction end to him. When it's time to paint and decorate, I'm your girl!
So, thats about it. Our timeline is creeping up on us. It's sad to think of leaving this place we’ve called home for almost 4 years. So much has happened here and the thought makes me so surprisingly sad. But, like the old man in the movie UP says, "Adventure is out there!"
