Welcome! I’m honored that you are here. Let’s get to know each other.
Things you should know about me and my full-time RV traveling family:
I’m an adventuresome, internal processing, book reading, travel loving, introvert. Writing is an avenue for me to learn more about myself and the world around me. I am not very comfortable with surface conversation. I like to ask questions. I tend to resist the norm and feel drawn toward those who dare to dream big.
I love Jesus. He is my everything. My foundation with Him has been tested and proven firm. We’re inseparable.
I won the spouse lottery in 1999 and married a man who is so similar to me that it’s just not fair to others. Two happy little introverts questioning the status quo together. That’s us.
We’ve made babies together. Five times. Our third baby earned me the before mentioned opportunity to test my foundation. I internally processed may way through an avalanche of grief when he was stillborn at the end of my pregnancy. Later, those internal thoughts became a book. You can read more about that here.
A few years ago, our big dreams got us questioning what we considered normal. This led us to make a series of changes in our lives that cumulated in the sale of our comfortable 5 bedroom home on 5 acres. We sold a large percentage of what our family owned, stored the rest and in the spring of 2016 purchased a 5th wheel RV to travel in full-time.
Want to hear more about our backstory? Click here for a podcast interview where I explain the process in more detail. In this interview, I talk about how we prepared financially. I discuss homeschooling and what was hard about that transition. I share details on downsizing and the difficulties that we faced in that area. Finally, I speculated what I thought the first year of travel might look like for us.
After our first year of travel, I followed up with Family Adventure Podcast in this podcast interview in which I share the fun experience of meeting other families on the road. I also talk about some of the challenges of life on the move, especially during the first few months. Lastly, I talk about how homeschooling on the road changed as our trip progressed.
A full-time RV family adventure
Let’s see what happens as we set out to dream big, question boldly, love lavishly and seek after God’s heart while traveling the US together. I welcome you to follow our adventures here (you can subscribe to get blog posts via email) or via Instagram, our Facebook page or even our YouTube channel.
Now it’s your turn: I’d love to hear about you. Send me an email and tell me a little (or a lot) about what makes your heart stir, what dreams you have and where you are at on your journey. I’ll respond to each and every email. If you stick around to read our story, I’d love for you to dialog with me in the comments as well. Its more fun to write when I know who’s on the other side of the screen.
