This morning we drove to Fort Worth to pick up our Airstream!!!  WHAT?!? I’m still in a bit of  shock!  While I dreamed of one, and deep down I knew we would get it, I still keep looking out the window amazed that it’s actually here!! 

This weekend marks a year from when we decided to follow our dream by putting our house on the market.  Wow, what a year it has been!

The crazy thing about life is that right when you least expect it and in the midst of dreams coming true, it throws blows that knock the breath right out of you.

Our plans were to be packing up and heading East in a few weeks, but about a month ago my brother was diagnosed with cancer. It has been a roller coaster of emotions - waiting, testing and now the beginning of treatment. I am so grateful that his prognosis is good, but the reality of the hell he will have to endure before getting through to the other side breaks my heart to pieces.

So, while we are ecstatic over this part of our dream finally being a reality, we can’t bear to leave while family needs us the most. Really, this is why we chose this lifestyle - to come and go and be where we want to be... and right now here is where we want to be! 

I’m sure we’ll find a weekend here and there when we can get away and test out our new home, but for the next few months, we’ll be close by. 

In the meantime, we will be able to get rid of all the things we’ve still been holding on to, and begin to make the airstream our home.  I’ll  be sure to post pictures of the inside once I start setting things up!  

Thanks for following along…
