We have 5 daughters.  So years ago, when I came across a blog post about unique and beautiful hairclips that promised to hold their hair, ease my time spent styling, and were lightweight and durable, I ordered some sight unseen.  Since that time, we have been wearing the Lilla Rose hairclips non-stop!  About a year […]

RV Basics – Top 5 RV kitchen tools…

How we arrange the pantry in our RV. |

While our family would consider ourselves resourceful, around our house having the right tool for the job is considered a must. Over the 6 years that we have been fulltime RVing and traveling, I have found this rule especially applies to the RV kitchen!  Cooking for 10+, in such a limited space, 3 meals a […]

Why we travel with a Berkey Water Filter…

A Berkey water purifier is perfect for RV use to make sure that no matter the source, you have safe drinking water. |

Our RV has really big tanks – we can run with 110 gallons of fresh water on board.  And while that works great for us when we are back in Montana camping, and we can fill up with the well water we love, relying on other water sources doesn’t always work so great for long […]

TOS Review – Beeyoutiful natural products…

One of the things that our family has been tryng to do the past few years, is to use natural products and foods.  I would love to feed my family all organic foods, but we haven’t won the lottery yet…(course, if you saw what we ate while on the road all day today, you wouldn’t believe […]

TOS Review – Box of IDEAS (I.D.E.A.S)….

Most of us, in our family, are history nuts – we LOVE to do all things history – nearly all our read-alouds are history based, and our fetish often determines where we stop when we are on the road.  I enjoy learning about history; if only I could keep it straight like my kids can!   I was recently […]

When we sold the house, we got rid of all our bikes – either taking them to the dump, or giving away the nicer ones. We had never really been much into bike riding, other than the kids going on some short rides together or going to get the mail; the roads were rocky and […]
