  • Casita | Camper Interior Makeover

  •   Alrighty, so those are the before pics above so you can see what I was working with. Faux oak cabinets everywhere, swirly hotel lobby style cushions. It had its own sort of vintage, cozy, camper feel, but it didn't feel like "my home" in the way that it looked. Living full time in our Casita, it was ve [...]
  • North Carolina | Nighttime Lake Paddle

  •   What a great paddle this was. Josh and I had started our busy season and were working our butts off, but we had the perfect lakeside camping spot.

  •   Every year, Josh and I try to spend as much time in Michigan as possible. Josh’s side of the family lives here, and those summers on the lake are so nostalgic for the both of us. We also love coming up in the winter, enjoying the beautiful snow, and cross country skiing. This year we were fortunate enough [...]
