The past few months have been interesting. At first, I felt lost--like a motherless child in a dark forest--frightened and alone. But then, as I watched the trees sway and noticed the sunlight beaming through the wiry limbs, my fear subsided a little. And I walked on, even though there was no path and no clear direction. Through words and creative photography, I knelt down to pick wildflowers, and I tied my curls up with ivy vines. I pet a small brown rabbit with a cotton tail, and I met a fox who piqued my interest enough to name him. I cooked what I gathered. I read from a hidden library of old books. The tiniest nothings became my treasures, and all that was found, was good. The forest became my home. The wilderness became my peace.
I promised everyone I'd share my thoughts on Nicholas Sparks' newest novel, Every Breath, so here it is. I'm not going to write a review because I share everything in the video, but if you've read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
We loved every minute of working on this little beauty. We've already taken it out a few times, and it's as cozy and perfect as we'd hoped it'd be.
Many people don't know (we didn't either until we found this one) that U-Haul rented campers out in the 80s. They are similar to retro Burro campers. The entire shell is fiberglass, which means it's held up well over the years. We did have to replace the bolts to the frame because they were rusting, but other than that the shell was in good shape. We removed the old decals--because the 80s, man...that's just not our style.
We're not purists unlike some of our other U-Haul friends. We chose to make it ours, so there's little reminders of what it originally looked like.
Hope you enjoy our little tour!
The first two books in the Sisters of Bloodcreek Series are so entertaining and are the perfect dose of creepy. They're ideal for fans of the television shows Supernatural and The Originials but are also reminimescent of classics like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Charmed.
