The Blues-Airstream Travelers  Family and sweet dog living full-time in an Airstream Giving thanks and giving back wherever we can 🙏🏼 Slow down. Simplify. Explore. 🏜 Follow along👇🏼

I could see myself living in Tahoe. There are only a handful of places where it snows that I like but there is something special about emerald green water adorned with mountain crowns that make this place extra special. 🧜🏼‍♀️🏔💚

Hey friends! We’d ❤️ to hear from you. We’ve been amazed how IG has connected us on our journey and hope we can pass some of that love along. We are approaching six months of full-time travel in our Airstream and I can’t believe how many mornings we have opened our door in spectacular locations.
.
Unfortunately, we’ve been so busy that I’ve poorly neglected our blog. So, I thought this would be a good time to review things we have learned along the way. Some of that knowledge has come from our great IG community, so much thanks to anyone who has fielded a newbie question from me. 😘
.
Here is my ask. If you have a tip that helped you, please share. Or if you have questions, ask anything you would like to know. Could be RV’ing, how we work, how we school, how we plan, or even just our favorite brewery. 😄 Nothing off limits and I will answer anything. 😊😬

If you comment below, I’ll tag/mention you in our post or feel free to message directly if you prefer to be anonymous. 😎

I’m told we need more pictures of us. I’m usually behind the camera but Lilya snapped this one! We are loving Tahoe and want to stay through this weekend and maybe do some diving but the temps may not work in our favor. Fingers crossed for an unexpected heat wave. 🙏🏻 ☀️

This is Wendy and she is precious to our family. I met her almost 22 years ago when our boys were playing t-ball together. We were both young mothers at the time and became fast friends with much in common. She was an inspiration for me as a mother and to this date one of the most amazing women I’ve known. Lenny is one lucky guy because he was married to her and the two of them had a love for each other that couldn’t be broken.
.
On Wendy’s birthday in 2008, she gave birth to Lilya. This was a joyful day for Lenny and Wendy but that joy was short lived. Wendy was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic cancer the following week and tragically passed away when Lilya was only 4 months old.
.
I lost my best friend but that pales in comparison to Lenny losing his love and Lilya losing her mother. I took stock in my life and things I thought were important were not anymore. That same tragedy is also what brought Lenny and I together and allowed me the privilege of becoming Lilya’s mother. Wendy told Lenny that she wanted him to remarry and find a good mother for Lilya. She also told him the person she thought she could most see him with was me. 😲 I’m not going to lie, it was weird to consider my friends husband romantically but life takes us down unexpected paths sometimes.
.
This tragedy has shaped all of our lives but hopefully in a way that would make Wendy smile. So, on this special day, I would like to honor this beautiful woman. Happy Mother’s Day Wendy! We love you! 😘
.
Ps ... Lilya’s name is an acronym. It means Lenny I Love You Always. ❤️

Salt crystals shimmering in the water with ice-capped mountains in the distance. I've ventured down this highway previously but it was in the dark of night. I'm thankful that we allowed a moment out of travel day to explore and play amid such an amazing landscape.

Following the Oregon trail west! We wrapped the work week with a quick visit to Scott’s Bluff National Monument in Nebraska. You can drive to the top of the bluff and hike the short trails in less than an hour. The geography here is so much different than the rest of Nebraska! It was a short diversion but a great educational/historical stop and Lilya picked up another Jr. Ranger badge. Westward Ho!

Ps...You might be able to spot the Airstream in the third photo but it's VERY tiny. 🔍

Missouri is one of the places we call home. I didn’t grow up here but I’ve lived in Kansas City for a while now and our sticks and bricks home is here. One of our friends gave us this wall hanging that was designed @localfoundery in our cool @downtownls neighborhood.
.
The last couple weeks we have been back in Missouri visiting with some great friends and family. It was awesome to see everyone but we are also very excited to get back out on the road.
.
Today we are headed through the Midwest and back to the coast. Not sure exactly where we are staying yet but I think we’re ready for some trees and ocean. ☀️ 🌲 🌊

Follow your heart. ❤️🧡💛 In my youth, I was very romantic about life. My heart led me and also failed me many times. As life went on, I learned to lead with my head. That doesn’t mean every decision I’ve made was completely logical, but I’ve tried to remove emotion and let common sense prevail. In many ways, this has served me quite well, particularly in my career. I’ve taught myself to suppress emotion, to ignore the deeper yearning. I didn’t think I had a choice. I thought being an adult and raising kids meant that I had to quiet my heart. I felt I had to work hard, make good money, buy the house, buy the cars, boats, clothes, etc. I thought these things would bring happiness to our family. .
Since I was a kid, exploring and connecting with nature has been in my blood. I feel most alive when I’m outdoors whether it be on land or under the sea. As a child I wanted to be a marine biologist, a photographer, an explorer. My life took a different direction. I have no regrets, but I don’t think I should give up on those dreams. I’m trying to listen to my heart again. I’m a scuba instructor, I share my photography, and I’m trying to explore as much of the world as I can and share stories with anyone who wants to hear them. For us to leave our home and slow my career at this stage in our life does not seem logical. I’m sure there are some that probably think we have lost our minds. However, I know there are others who still long for something they put aside. Something that fills the heart and feeds the soul. If you are one of those people, I’m here for you. I’m cheering for you!! Maybe I can even inspire you to follow your heart! 😘
