Musings from New Mexico

Photo by Nextvoyage on We've been on the road over three weeks now, but we have lived this "lifestyle" (in the RV) for going on six months. Obviously, there have been some massive adaptations to make...a year ago, I had 3,000 square feet of space to move about in- a big kitchen to cook... Continue Reading →


For the last week, we have been working our way through Texas. We stopped for a rest in Big Bend National Park, where we will be until Friday, when we push west toward New Mexico. The past week has gone FAR better than the first...everyone is healthy, and we've put some serious miles behind us,... Continue Reading →

Seven days in

Well, here we are. One week ago, we left Virginia and committed to life on the road. As I write, we are tucked away at a state park in Lumberton, Texas. It has been one hell of a week... I'll give you a breakdown of where we've been so far, and what we've been up... Continue Reading →


Photo by Jordan Benton on I'm BACK! First off, I want to apologize for leaving everyone hanging. I fell off the blogging wagon pretty hard just after the sale of our house. Posts were started, but never finished... I was in a really weird place. Miserably impatient for the future, but also terrified of... Continue Reading →

My in-laws were buying the farm across the road, and when we discovered a mostly flat, grassy area with only small cedars to clear, I knew. I immediately... Continue Reading →

Coming Soon

The majority of our time is being spent in the RV now, as we get moved in and accustomed to the space. I never expected to feel so fulfilled by so little. As I write,  rain is falling on the roof, and the cool weather is giving the first hint of fall. My baby boy... Continue Reading →

But are you happy?

We live our lives chasing status. Chasing promotion, big name careers, another figure to add to the income, giant houses, expensive cars...We chase those things because we want to achieve the best possible status for ourselves. Once it's achieved, however, do we wind up happy? Fulfilled? Most of the time, no. How many people win... Continue Reading →

The dream

"What in God's name possessed you to do this?" Well, bear with me while I explain. Earlier this year, my husband was diagnosed with a co-infection of Lyme's disease known as Babesia. It was finaly caught after several years of slow decline, which he had attributed to intense physical labor. Eventually, we both knew something was... Continue Reading →

The Journey Begins

Change. It is utterly terrifying. We love to read about it, or watch movies where the characters dive headfirst into a new challenge, but when it comes to the average Joe (or Jane)...NO WAY. Sure, quitting your job and sailing off into the sunset sounds great, but what about all the unknowns? Humans like security.... Continue Reading →
