I didn’t get a chance to post these earlier today, but here was this morning’s view from our home. It was the last morning of our trip, so tomorrow we will wake up back home at home base (our old home’s driveway).
I dig living in a house right now, with bathrooms, plumbing, and in floor radiant heat, but I sure miss days of @unfurling_adventuress , the cat, and me living in #ourhomeiggy

Have you missed me friends? I finally have my big announcement! As the years go by, I am still my same old self...I’ve just learned to pause and process before I speak...at least most of the time! Well, after a nice long sabbatical from social media, I am back. As my traveling friends have been guessing...we are planting roots again. With almost three teens in the house...it was bound to happen. 3 1/2 years off full time RV travel...man was it amazing! What a blessing and an adventure. Well, after discovering Idaho in 2015, we were smitten and new immediately, that this would be our someday home. So although we will always be RVers...and plan to travel more with the kids....and after the kids...we have hung up the full-time keys. We found our dream home in North Idaho and are crazy in-love with our new place! We have made the space our own and I have officially detoxed from the transition. Stick around and see how we adventure through the inland northwest, transition from RVing, winterize the RV, summarize our journey of 3+ years on the road and lay new roots. Life is a journey...and adventure is always wild!
Last share from this fun family session in the snow... ❤️ Mentally prepping myself for the travels ahead but knowing I have so many beautiful family sessions coming up during these travels makes me feel pretty darn lucky.
Wyoming, Montana, Texas...here we come!
Truck still isn’t ready but probably will be soon?? This little hiccup is forcing us to nix the North Carolina portion of our trip. Of course we’re bummed but it just feels greedy to have a tour of the US without any detours along the way. Next stop (whenever that is): Florida. 🏝 (Photo taken at Big Bend in Texas, week two.)
Day 185: For the first time in 6 months, we are headed south 💛 just in time to spend the holidays with family. 🥧💫 The past 6 months have been incredible! We are looking forward to spending some quality time with family, and then hit the road once again 💥🛣

Today the Adventure Science Center had a camp that was ALL DAY long that the kids went to. OMG blissful 😂 I realize that could probably sound like I can’t stand my kids and love pawning them off.... hmmm I’m okay with that 😂😂 Which by the way, that science center is one of the most impressive science centers I have ever seen. 🔥🤗 Lol no seriously. I love my kids but also really value those days and times I can have some me time. So they went to this camp all day and had a blast. Momma took herself to breakfast. Got a TON of work done. Then went to lunch and got a TON more work done.
I am in the process of opening a new office in Tennessee with an amazing birth mother and adoptive mother —— it is going to be serious 🔥 these ladies are amazing and will be an unstoppable team! ❤️💥🔥 After I crushed some work and ate WAY to much food - I walked around and explored Nashville some more.
after I grabbed my kids from the Science center - we went to the rainforest cafe. This has some significance to it as all my kids except little Leo had been to that exact restaurant. It was nostalgic to look around and remember my now 19 yo sitting there as a 2 year old semi afraid of the Monkeys 🐒😂 I am now sitting in the camper enjoying some downtime and processing all that food I ate today. Going to need stretch pants tomorrow 😂😂😂

I forgot to post our adventures from yesterday. In Carrabelle, we saw the bottle house and bottle lighthouse, we stopped by the World’s Smallest Police Station, and climbed to the top of the Crooked River Lighthouse. #motorhome#rvlife#fulltimerv#notallwhowanderarelost
It’s so easy to always feel like you’re on vacation when traveling full-time. 🏖 Our bank account has been feeling it! Our good friends at @vowtodream talked about how much they love @youneedabudget so we decided to give it a try.💰We signed up for a free trial and are already seeing benefit from it—just seeing everything laid out in front of us, with little math needed on our end, has been super helpful. Do you budget? What tools do you use? 💸
Pepin, Wisconsin was good to us. Thanks to John B. For loaning us his house in the woods. We sat and stared at the wood burning stove, an older Jotul, all morning and night. The snowfall looked glorious on the vines and at dawn we watched a couple young bucks dance together with locked antlers.
Holy cow! El Paso, you are cold! I've pulled the feetie pajamas out, have extra blankets on hand and am snuggling with Cohen while we read. This will be the #facedragon's first freeze ❄️ We actually weren't supposed to be here tonight (in another parking lot (this time Cabela's). The whole reason we came to El Paso was to pick up our mail that was being shipped here. Thanks @thebjjwulfe! And we came on the Sunday before Veteran's Day 😂. In our defense, we rarely know what day of the week it is much less if it's a federal holiday. So, one more, freezing, night here and then off to #guadalupemountainsnationalpark#freeisfree#lifedotnext#rvlife#fulltimerv#fulltimervfamily#fulltimers

La plage Puerto Soley est l'endroit idéal pour prendre un peu de bon temps. Pêche, SUP, barbecue, windsurf,... et couchés de soleil à tomber à le renverse. Pura vida!

The slides are in and we're ready to hit the road! There isn't much walking room in there, it's a tight squeeze.

Arrêt au stand bien efficace sur Tegucigalpa. Camion comme neuf ... presque :-)
Sometimes I think this tiny living thing is really just me living out my childhood dream to sleep in a fort forever. #imsocozyallthetime

Hang on to your hats kids because today.... We ride! (I made sure Mander started before I posted this. 😂)
Weekend bus progress:
✔️frame shower & bathroom walls
✔️start putting up shiplap
✔️purchase cabinets & countertops
✔️purchase combo washer/dryer
Thankfully we realized before we completed the final part of our closet-sized bathroom walls that we wouldn’t be able to fit our washer/dryer through the gap of the final product 😳So of course we ordered it from @homedepot and will install it and THEN the last part of the wall!
Daniel says that converting a bus to a tiny house is like playing chess—you have to think 5 moves ahead!
Shhhhheeeeeeee's baaaaaaack!! In the year that I've been on the road, the last couple weeks have definitely been the lowest of lows for me and I want to thank you all for sticking with me! I'm so happy to see Mander's cutie face and even more happy to be back in my house and back on the road very soon!!!! MANDER ON!!!!!!💖✌️🌞🌈💃
Hi friends! I’ve never done a #fridayintroductions but it’s time! There have been so many new friends who have joined us since we moved tiny and I would love to know you more! •
My name is Katie and I recently quit my full time job to stay home with my daughter and pursue new dreams! I speak at conferences and retreats on life and faith and I do private speaking and preaching coaching. I’m also pregnant with baby #2 due in April 2019🤰🏼.
My husband @dannyquesada is in the operations side of a clothing company in LA. He is very excited college basketball is starting again.
We have an amazing 2 year old named Gracie June who is singing, talking, and dancing like it’s her job.
We decided to sell most of what we own and move into an RV because we wanted pursue new dreams which meant we would cut our income for a season but also wanted to continue to save money. Rent where we live is insane and this was our way out of paying someone thousands of dollars each month!
We can’t believe how much we’ve loved going small. So much life can happen in 180sq ft. In some ways it’s been harder then we thought and in some ways it’s been easier! •
What do you think would be hardest thing for you in living small?
