WE LIVE IN A VAN
We love being on the road. We love waking up in a new place and discovering things we've never seen before. We are not homebodies, and being on the road for 10 months has really solidified that. Now, we know we are in the honeymoon phase of the trip and we know it's not always going to be rainbows and butterflies, but we do have this sense of peace. The sense of this is what we are meant to be doing. My husband and I aren't made to live in routine and live in the same house and see the same people and places everyday (even though we miss our friends in Spokane!). We are made to explore and meet new people and experience new foods and walk new paths. This is when we are truly our happiest. At least that is what Mike and I have discovered about ourselves. We are also very fortunate in that we love to spend time together. He is my best friend and favorite travel buddy. So to be doing this with him and experiencing pure joy with the man that I have chosen to spend the rest of my life with is a blessing that is easily taken for granted when we are stuck in one place doing the same thing over and over again. Life with him is so so good, fun, exciting, hysterical, adventurous, etc... and to really experience that with each other, we knew this was something we had to do. AND something we had to do before kids. Trust me, we are SO pumped to have kids and become parents, but we also know we will never get this time of our lives back, so why not enjoy it to its fullest?! And to us, this trip is us living our lives to its fullest. And when we do have kids, they will be traveling with us. I think we are very optimistic about that, but why not try right?!
