Our Trailer has Arrived!!

Guess that means we better get to building!

Sunday was Tish and my one year anniversary — it’s crazy to think it’s already been a year since we eloped and then flew to Amsterdam/Berlin for our honeymoon. So much has changed since thing: we decided to build a tiny house; we updated and sold our house in Richmond; we sold my car; donated, sold or gave away any excess stuff we didn’t need/want; packed up our Honda Fit with everything we decided to keep (including our three animals) and moved across the country to my childhood home. Of course, we made sure we had a fair share of travel and outdoor adventures sprinkled in between. It’s been an incredible year, and despite the fact that our trailer was supposed to be here last Wednesday….the stars aligned and our (amazing) delivery guy wasn’t able to make it until Sunday. What a fitting way to start our second year of marriage!

IMG_2930 2Our last day of driving was pretty rough, we were so very ready to be off the road and getting settled in to our new home (well, my old home) and new routine/life. We had a little hang up while loading up the car Thursday morning when Tish found a lost tiny poodle so we pressed pause on leaving to find his owner.

Day 1 of our Cross-Country Move

Today was our closing date, and our planned day to leave Virginia and head west to California. We set off at 1:30, only 30 minutes after our goal time when we woke up this morning…..and we made it to Lexington. No, not Kentucky. Virginia. We made it 140 miles. Before you start to judge, let me just say in our defense we were thrown quite the curve ball and ended up recovering pretty well, considering! Continue reading “Day 1 of our Cross-Country Move”
