As you all know, we had some bus trouble over the weekend. I couldn’t have imagined that, through her break down, Ripple would find her twin, Chief Pete 😛 Thank you @puppyhikes for being kind enough to stop and help!
A peek into our new home on wheels. I don’t really know what to say except that God is really kind. We were about to purchase a nearly identical rv model, but one that needed a lot of work. It was daunting and I was in over my head, thinking that we were going to do a hefty amount of cosmetic work while we were living in it. But one night I surrendered my anxiety to God and started getting excited about design ideas. While browsing Pinterest that same night, I came across this photo and fell in LOVE with the style. I found the designer of the rv on Instagram and the next day she posted that it was for sale😱, for the same price we were about to pay for the other rig. I flipped out (understatement) and showed my husband. We couldn’t believe it. It’s not every day that a fully remodeled rv hits the gram for sale, and certainly not in our price range. It was divine timing, and among all the interest that the seller received, she was kind enough to work with us and let us have it, even though we are in Kansas City and they in Portland. It will be delivered at the end of the month and we are moving in right away! This has been a long time coming for us, and we are pinching ourselves daily that our dreams are finally coming to fruition. I’ll be combining my personal account to this one, so that my interests and pursuits are no longer separated. I would love if you stayed and followed along on our journey towards a simpler more intentional life of love and adventure. ☼
Just a couple more sleeps until we are back in Tennessee ✨
Stopping back home for a few months to save money for our travels and spend time with family during the holidays. Can’t wait to reconnect with you guys- let’s go camping!

Also- of course there is a giveaway😍 (no purchase necessary to enter giveaway)
We get so excited when travelling that we focus on the destination, and forget to enjoy the journey.
So, this time we purposely diverted north to drive Highway 99 from Lillooet.
And boy did it not disappoint!
The journey really is half the fun, so we slow down, we enjoy the ride, and we look up.
Guess who we met at Smugglers Notch- This young fella didn’t care a wee bit. We were walking up a trail and turned a corner. He stood 10 feet from me. I was super lucky he held still. Gave me time to grab Dozer, leash him. I asked the bull a few times to move his ass off the trail he just stared at us meandering for ~ 1/2 mile in front till we got to a large pond. We never made it made it to the peak - I was happy to watch him eat for over an hour - even Dozer’s barking didn’t faze him in the least **

Howdy, everyone! Sorry we’ve been a lil’ MIA... it has been quiiiiite a month over here. We finally updated our blog— with a very [long] special post containing some important information 😉. Check it out, and stay posted for some more van specific updates soon! // | photo by @wildairstudios
Made a big purchase. Meet Dobby. He’s a 2007 Collins Micro Bird bus soon to be my new house. There are so many reasons I am making this change and embarking on this project that I will be sure to explain over the next few months.
I have a lease to finish up in Nashville and then I will be moving to Illinois for a few months to do the conversion. I will use @dobbythebus to document the conversion, the adventures, and all the people who helped make it happen. Join me there. I think it’s gonna be a great ride.
