Our last Disney day was spent at Animal Kingdom. It was crazy crowded but we loved the Safari and Pandora. The boys became wilderness explorers and I’m pretty sure we picked up a stomach bug from the massive playground. We made some great memories and can’t wait to slow down for the rest of the month.

We got lost in a white wonderland without the cold temperatures in White Sands, New Mexico. The white sand was soft and powdery like fresh snow and cool to the touch. How can a place like this exist? A winter wonderland in the middle of the desert? There are hiking trails, picnic areas and dunes upon dunes. We got sleds at the gift shop so the kids can go sledding down the sand dunes. There is no other place like this white sand wonderland!

“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams. “ - Oprah ✹
For some reason, when we drove across the Golden Gate Bridge, it struck me that we really are living the life of my dreams and what a grand adventure it is. ✹
It may have been because of all those episodes of Full House that I watched as a kid 😊, but visiting San Francisco was always something that I wanted to do, but never really thought I would. It seemed too far away (being from West Virginia/Virginia). ✹
I am insanely grateful for the opportunities that we have to live our dreams. For the health of my family and love that we share. ✹
I wish the same for you too. That you would get the chance to live your own grand adventure no matter what it is. ✹
When you think about your dream, what is it you’re looking for? If your dream is to travel, is it the beauty or the adventure you want? ✹
Now think about how you can have that now. Right where you are, without waiting. Living your dream doesn’t have to be a grand gesture. It takes intentionality and awareness. This is what we mean by living our life on purpose. ✹

We get quite a variety of reactions from people when they find out we live in an RV full-time with our 3 kids, and we homeschool, and work from home. Some people think it's the coolest thing ever; some think we're insane. I get it. It's a small space. It's not the norm. There's only a small shower instead of a tub. I so miss having a tub. Yes, sometimes it's really frustrating living tiny. But, living this way has meant experiences this past year and experiences are where it's at! Creating memories together that will last a lifetime is worth any of the challenges. Those challenges have made us stronger and closer. We've seen so very many new things and places! Not to mention that quality time with who I love most is definitely my love language. ❄️🌲❤️
We'll always remember when Elijah fell out of his kayak in a glacier lake and Brody and Emery helping him figure out how to get back on... That time it snowed like crazy and we played in it for days... Hiking together through the cold river of the Narrows in Zion National Park... Walking through a forest of the biggest trees in the whole world a mile up in the sky... Building driftwood forts on a magic beach... Sliding down a natural red rock slide that God made... Going on a real train ride... Running up the Rocky steps on a super cold day... ❄️🌲❤️
We'll have a house again, maybe sooner than later. But, we'll always be travelers, always be better for having this adventure, and we'll never ever regret the great blessings and lessons and that have come with it. You grow when you embrace new opportunities and experiences. Don't be afraid to be different or to just be you.
