Well it's official, today is the first day of 2018. We have officially closed the door on another year, and we are excited to see where this year is going to take us! We made some changes, big changes, last year in the direction that my photography business, and where life in general is heading.
It all started with a dream (yes I am a dreamer). I have dreamed for a long time that I was going to get to travel and see the beauty God has blessed us with, and it may not be an extravagant life. Traveling around in a converted minivan with my husband and our dog. But, the views far outweight any inconvenience of the things left behind and the comforts of "home". So for us "home is where we park it"!!!
So as I say goodbye to 2017, I also say goodbye to limits and boundaries because I see nothing but wide-open spaces and endless possibilities for 2018! I hope you will follow along on our adventures as we travel around the country"boondocking on a budget" (a very small one at that) and in just a few days (January 7th) we will be heading west on our big adventure and we are excited to see the BEAUTIFUL country that awaits us and I cannot wait to capture those images and share them with you all!!!
We are going to try to stay in a little bit warmer climate during the winter months so will be staying in the southwest as we venture into the unknown. We have no real plan. Just kinda pointing the van in a general direction and seeing where God leads us. We have already seen some awesome sites and met some amazing people along the way.
So please keep us in your thoughts and prayers for safety while we are out on the open road. We are praying that this leg of our trip does not require any vehicle repairs as our 3 months in West Virginia was quite an adventure when it came to our van. We had to find/replace 4 tires, a battery and the thermostat. But on a good note "Lucy" is running great now and we have heat again!!!
I will leave you a few of my favorite images from 2017 and our 1st 3 months out on the road living the "VanLife".
So here is to happy trails, an adventurous spirit, dreaming big, and reaching for the Stars in 2018!!! ;)
