Video tour of our new tiny home on wheels

Two months ago, we purchased a  new (to us) tiny home on wheels – this 2003 Fleetwood Bounder 39Z diesel pusher motorhome. See video below.

It was a looooooong process of shopping for months and months and months to find exactly what we wanted.

It required many, many road trips several hours away…as well as sacrificing all of our free time on our days off week after week after week.

Oh my gosh, it got really old to be RV shopping ALL of the time instead of out enjoying the things we normally like to do (hiking, biking, etc.).

There were soooooooooo many times that we thought we should just give up. Buuuuuuut….I’m soooooooo glad we didn’t because it was all SO worth it in the end!!!

After living full-time in a 20-foot-long Roadtrek motor home for 4 1/2 years (and in a fifth wheel for a year before that), we are so excited to have so much more room and so many more amenities (e.g., washer/dryer) than we had in our previous RVs.

Seriously, every …single…day…. I rejoice in how amazing it is to have this rig – all 300 square feet of it! We feel so incredibly grateful and blessed that it all worked out so wonderfully! Thank God we didn’t quit!!! Whew!

Ultimate “To-Do List” for Your Soul

Wow! We’ve had a super busy few months over here!!

It’s been an incredibly exciting time shopping for, purchasing and settling into our new RV…

but….it’s been a waaaaay too busy time, too!!! OMG!!!

A few weeks ago, I realized that I was drowning in “to-do” lists! Yikes!!!

And, honestly, I was starting to feel a bit lost and confused because I wasn’t feeling like myself. My life had quickly become ruled by tasks that really didn’t contribute directly to my happiness.

Joy list 2

So, I decided to make the ultimate high priority “to-do list” for myself to get my soul back into focus.

Instead of tasks that I need to get done, I made a list of things that bring me joy. Yes, my own little “Joy List.”

I decided to make it a monthly thing, and the list will likely change from month to month, but I’m happy to report that this list has really, really worked for me!

To be clear, it’s not intended as a true “must do” list in the sense that I need to check everything off in any regimented fashion. I doubt I’ll ever have check marks next to every item, actually.

It’s just a way for me to keep honest track of how well I’m “feeding my soul” on a regular basis. And it’s nice to have a handy little list of ideas for doing so.

This month, I particularly enjoyed the idea of “trying something new.” And as you can see….I tried 3 new things, in fact! LOL!

What do you think? Wanna give this a try? You’ve got nothing to lose!

Even if you never go back and reference the list, it’s still an interesting exercise just to create the list in the first place!

What would you include on your Joy List?

River Flows in You

Life can be so incredibly hectic. There’s always so much to do! Ugh!

It can be hard to remember, but it’s really, really good to just relax sometimes.

I, personally, find it difficult to prioritize spending a little idle time every once and a while, but I encourage you to give yourself a break and “massage your nervous” system for a few minutes by simply being still and listening to this beautiful and relaxing melody….

There’s just something about this song! Do you agree???

It’s titled, “River Flows in You.” What does that mean to you?
