Quite some time ago, I read an article in a magazine (before you could find everything you want to read online). Unfortunately, I have no ideas what the magazine was or who wrote the article. The author wrote about the passing of her mother, and finding “the good dishes” in one of her mother’s cupboards. … Continue reading The Good Dishes
Well everyone, we have officially succeeded in moving into our new home! I feel like we are starting a new chapter in our lives as a family, and I’m going to do a touch of rebranding to our blog. I’ve chosen a new feature photo that I took last week of a butterfly in our … Continue reading Rebranding – Feature Photo & Tagline Update
In honor of Father’s Day, I’ll begin this post with something that my dad recently told me, “the 2 best days of owning a recreational vehicle [be it a boat, motorcycle, or class A motor home] are the day you buy it and the day you sell it.” 1982 – my parents, my younger sister … Continue reading Happy Father’s Day! & We Sold the Winnebago!
(The featured image for this post is the sunset from my parent's deck in Paradise, California, before the Camp Fire.) We have an exciting update! In April, we made an offer to purchase a house here in California, and we just got the keys to our new home! It is with mixed feelings that I … Continue reading Coming in for a Landing
The police just came to our front door to inform us that we can’t park our RV on the street in front of our rental house. Apparently, someone complained about it, and there is a city ordinance we were unaware of. We have 24 hours to move it. This was our home for 10 months … Continue reading 2017 Winnebago Vista For Sale

E and I have been feeling pretty "blue" the past couple weeks and we thought that seeing the ocean might be a nice short-term remedy. We used to have a piece of artwork … Continue reading The Cure for Anything is Salt Water – Point Reyes National Seashore – California

We officially moved into our 35-ft Winnebago on December 14, 2018. After the Camp Fire, we decided that living in a tiny house on wheels and traveling around to see the Western USA would be the best thing for our family of five. Like thousands of other families in Paradise, California, we'd lost our house … Continue reading RV Living Quarterly Report (December 2019)
My friends and I sang This Used to be My Playground by Madonna at our high school graduation from Paradise Adventist Academy in 1998. I couldn't help but find the lyrics appropriate for my state of mind today. "This used to be my playground This used to be my childhood dream This used to be the … Continue reading One Year After the Paradise Camp Fire
