My Thoughts and Adventures…

A place to share the things that matter in my life, whether it be living tiny in my RV, spending time with my family, photographing this beautiful country while making memories or how I’m coping with life in general. I hope that it can at least make someone smile or laugh, even if it’s at my own expense.
