There comes a point in life when you realize that things seem to be moving too quickly. That moment came for me in Yosemite National Park a few years ago. We scheduled a brief family vacation because in all the years we've lived in California we'd never made the time to visit. I realized on that trip that I really like the young adults my children are becoming (although that could change at any minute!); I realized I'm so lucky to be married to someone I adore, and that there is so much more to this beautiful world than conference calls and e-mails. 

I came home and scoured Craigslist for a pop-up camper, an easy entry into the world of traveling by trailer. We fixed it up, loved it and used it. But we always ogled at the Airstreams we'd see at the campsites. So, when the opportunity arose to by a "new to us" 2008 Safari 25fb SE, we took the leap of faith.

There is nothing I like more than a good project, and my husband (henceforth referred to as The Utility Man) seems to be willing and able to help me with my often crazy ideas. I love the inspiration I get from other people's work. "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?" So, I want this sight to be a home for you to display the beautiful work you have done to your Airstream, with the story behind it. We can all be inspired by one another.

Join our family as we work on making Annie the Airstream our own and as we make a conscious effort to spend more time exploring, hiking, playing cards and sitting around campfires. We welcome you to join us!
