I published this last week, but I failed to set the date properly. I’m just re-posting it today so it’s in a better sequential order on the blog. Well friends we have a big announcement. We sold our beautiful home in Northern California and we are moving to Idaho! We did things a little bit … Continue reading RV Homeschool 🤦🏻♀️ Here We Go Again!
My daughter got these super sweet paper dolls from her grandma for her 9th birthday.

There are so many wildfires burning in California right now, and the air quality is so unhealthy from all the smoke. Several times these past couple of weeks, I’ve found myself wondering, “Why did we decide to move back to California anyway?” This past weekend, we decided to take our Minnie Winnie on its maiden … Continue reading “Chasing Waves” – Mac Kerricher State Park – Fort Bragg, California

I unpacked a bunch … Continue reading Grown-up Book of the Month – August 2020
My husband bought a one-way airline ticket to Las Vegas, Nevada. As is often the case though, things aren’t always what they seem... We heard about a really good deal on pre-owned Minnie-Winnies. At 23-feet, this Winnebago will fit in our driveway. We decided to purchase an RV that had previously been used as a … Continue reading One-Way Ticket to Vegas ✈️

Menu planning is a skill that I occasionally work on and I'm certainly not adept at. My husband often requests that we have a better idea of what we're having for dinner. I've read that meal planning can be very helpful. There have been seasons where I made a much better effort at doing it. … Continue reading 4-Day Weekend RV Menu
