I don’t know that there is a whole lot in life period that I can say that I can’t do… Just things that I haven’t done yet.

Richie Parker

No, this is not a motivational phrase that I came up with. It’s the words of the man featured in the video below, Richie Parker. When people like Richie, are put in the public eye, it’s not for sympathy, or help. It’s to show us that no matter what you’re thrown in life, you have a choice: adapt, or get ...

I just found out we might be on Good Morning America Tomorrow (Wednesday, June 5, 2013)!

Carrie-Underwood

I was contacted by the “people” for Carrie Underwood. They want to use a part of our video “Telling my dad we’re pregnant! This one might make you cry a little.” EDIT: The video is up, and you only see my dad hugging Brianne for a mili second at around 2:19 here http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/carrie-underwoods-music-video-gma-19327990. I’m still happy and excited that it’s out ...

Opposites Attract, But Now What?

Left Brain vs Right Brain - How to Communicate

After twelve years together, Branndon and I have a lot of things figured out. There is a lot of compromise. For example, I do the dishes and he gives Spirit a bath (at least for a little longer). Above all though, communication is the most important. But what do you do when it becomes difficult to communicate? We needed to ...

You don’t find the time, you make the time.

Sundial - You don't find the time, you make the time.

Today after a long day at work, I was listening to the Smart Passive Income Podcast Session 51. Pat Flynn is the host, and his guest was none other than Tim Ferris. They were talking a bit about the principals of The 4 Hour Workweek, and what the book really aims to teach. They were discussing the fact that the author, ...

A blessing in disguise…

Blessing In Disguise - Pay Cut In Half Turns Into Choice Of A Lifetime

After (some) time I’ve come to the belief that Branndon’s pay being cut by almost half has been a blessing in disguise. Seriously, I actually mean that. Without that major change causing the ripple effect that ultimately led to our (finally) purchasing a travel trailer, we might never have done it. Honestly, this is something we later might have had regrets ...

Making friends as an adult is hard. Especially if you’re not “normal”.

The Digital Hippies | Explore. Dream. Discover.

In school, you had people around you all the time. There was almost no choice but to make some friends. But as an adult, it’s rare. I mean, come on, if I see a guy who looks cool, it’d be nice to have some sort of bromance checklist you could swap. Stuff like main interests, thoughts on a certain subject, ...

The 4 Hour Work Week…. I need to finish this book!

The Four Hour Work Week - I Quit

I’ve gotten about 100 pages deep in to the book The 4 Hour Work Week and it’s inspiring and motivating. It really makes me want to leave my 8-4 daily grind, which gets me nowhere, and hit the road, working on my own terms. I also received The 4 Hour Chef as a gift from Brianne this past Christmas. I’m about 30 ...

We’ve Moved Again!

Glen Ivy RV Park in Corona, California

We moved in to an RV park for the first time! It’s exciting and fun. We moved in 3 days ago, and so far we really like it. I have to leave in 2 minutes, but I wanted to get this quick update on the website. The RV Park is Glen Ivy RV Park in Corona, Ca. It’s quiet, not ...

So we have officially moved in to the trailer!

Carriage Cameo 29FKS - Front Angle

On Monday, we picked up our new home, and towed it up a winding mountain road to Running Springs, CA. The first night we couldn’t sleep in it because the bed wasn’t in yet, but the Tuesday night we slept in it! It’s great. We (Brianne mainly) are still getting it set up. Lots of scrubbing, cleaning, shampooing of carpets, ...
