Lifestyle Change

Well, after lots of thinking and crying and being fed up with life in general , I decided that it’s time to make a change – something drastic. Something refreshing and new. Something that I can dedicate my life to and enjoy working on at the same time. Something that includes my family and allows me to follow my dreams.

So of course, I think big… “Let’s buy an RV, quit our jobs, and drive across the US & sell my crafts for money.” Yes, I realize that sounds completely crazy. Scott thinks I just hit my mid-life crisis at 21. But as crazy as it seems, it also seem so… perfect! I don’t want the rest of my life to be spent working a 9-5 in a cubicle, strapped to a headset. I don’t want to live like 95% of Americans. I want to be able to embrace my creativity and explore the world. The way I see it – we’re only here for a short amount of time… why would I want to waste the next 20 years planning on what I want to do with my life?


I remember being little and dreaming about the kind of mom I wanted to be when I grew up -it included lots of art & music & traveling & sign language & story time & play-dates… not strict schedules & bills & babysitters & no time. So, I started doing some searching. Not just on google, but searching for myself. So yes, maybe I have hit a pre-mid-life crisis. But all of my dreams are achievable and if I start making some major changes now, then in a year I really may be able to hop in an RV and not come back until I’ve seen all 50 states. I want to focus on 3 major things:

1. living my life for me and my family

2. traveling and exploring the world

3. working hard at something I enjoy

My goal is to own my own business that will give me the freedom to travel as I please, spend time with my family, and feel satisfied and fulfilled by the life I’m living. Now, the problem is where to start. How do I meet the people I want to meet and find the answers & experience & direction & motivation & money & time to make it all happen? How do I get out of a cubicle from 9-5 and start living my dream?

With direction & inspiration & wisdom & creativity & a vision.

Welcome to the first chapter of a new life 🙂

    I can’t imagine what life would be like if I didn’t come back home every visit and see you and Kinsley’s beautiful faces…buuuuut, no one wants someone as out there as Savannah sitting in a cubicle every day. We all know that’s not what life has in store for you. I hope that if you do decide to travel the country (maybe more?) that your first destination will be right here, to spend some quality time on the beach with your favorite cousin 😉 before you’re gone from us for a very long time.
    Also, that I may be able to live in the closet of your RV? I’ll be your maid for it…
    Just kidding,
    or am I?
    Really, though. I love you to death, and you will always be one of my four favorite people in this world. I hope life takes you everywhere that you want it to and I hope you find everything you’re looking for someday when you do take off.
    Aaand don’t ever forget how close I hold you to my heart, what a HUGE piece of it will ALWAYS be yours, and how sincerely I have always and will always love you.
    p.s. my password is still sav123 to lots of things, thought that’d make you smile, please don’t use it to my disadvantage. ❤

        Heh heh, anything to see your pretty face every day bby 😉
        DOWN to be babysitter. Kins and Bry are the only little kids I like, I’ve learned. Bry and I have this awesome connection…probably because I’m his girlfriend again. Things just aren’t right in my life when my big man ain’t protectin me.
