Today is our 1 year anniversary as a full-time RVers. In all my life, I never thought that would be something I would actually say! It’s been an interesting and amazing year, what with letting go of the past, enjoying the present and looking forward to the future.

(I’ll try to post more frequently … my goal is once a week, if there is anything interesting to report.)
