Gratitude! Swimming around in my heart!
This weekend, we will be setting up our trailer at a local camp/RV site. In preparing for our goal of The Good Vibes Only Roadshow North American Tour, we feel it is important to spend the first season, set up locally, to get organized! When we think of the full-time RV lifestyle, it is a big step, but one we are ready for!
Turning an RV/Trailer into your home, certainly takes a lot of thought, which I am finding out! I am enjoying the process, wrapping myself up in the creativity of it all, and I am learning!
They say, “everything happens for a reason”, and this is what needs to happen in our lives! Our passion for travel, seeing as much of the country as possible, and meeting others to share Good Vibes with, are all on the top of our lists!
We will be blogging, writing our new books, and working our virtual business from the trailer! I’m visualizing our trailer filled with so much creative energy and motivation; I can’t help to want to jump up and down with excitement! To be childlike is AWESOME!
I feel energized and excited, with a new youthful feeling, just thinking about this new venture!
It is thanks to following a lot of you who are already living this lifestyle; you have inspired not only me, but countless others! 💖 Much Gratitude!!

It is funny, what stands out about a person in your mind, after they are gone.
My Mom and her Pink Nails! I still remember the name of the nail polish; Windsor by Revlon!
In thinking about my Mom, I think about our own children. Although, they are all in their 20’s now, every chance I get, I remind them how important it is to take note of all the things we may take for granted – even the shape of nails.
This post is about, “living life with no regrets”; take note of everything about the ones you love.
Eventually, and unfortunately, we will all have to say goodbye to those we love; the gift is remembering everything about them. The sound of their voice, their favorite nail polish color, their favorite foods, their hobbies, and the sound of their laugh.
By taking note of all their qualities, you will be able to share all your memories and characteristics to the future generations of your family. These things will be so important in teaching new generations about life and where they came from; even the color of someone’s nail polish.

They Knew Her When
They Knew Her When it was convenient for them!
They Knew Her When she was what they wanted her to be!
They Knew Her When she was hurting inside!
They Knew Her When she couldn’t find a way to smile!
They Knew Her When they wanted to disregard her feelings!
They Knew Her When she would let them hurt her!
They Knew Her When
Do They Know Her Now?
Do They Know how strong she has become?
Do They Know how happy she truly is?
Do They know you cannot hurt her anymore?
Do They know her passions?
Do They know her dreams?
Do They know she loves?
Do They know she cares?
Do They know the size of her heart?
Do They Know, She “KNEW THEM WHEN” as well?

This is just a little thought that crossed my mind this Friday morning:
Animals, babies, infants, and toddlers are the only Gifts in this World who do not understand the concept of, “TGIF!” For me, I am grateful they don’t!
Could you imagine, if animals, babies, infants, and toddlers could understand TGIF, just how much faster their lives would seem to fly by? It seems, we are always in a rush for Friday to come around, then when it does, we say to ourselves, “boy, that week just flew by!”
Enjoy each and every single day of your life, as if it were, “TGIF!” I have a feeling, if you were to celebrate every day this way, then you won’t feel like life is “passing” you by!

A couple of years ago, I decided to have special “Sunday Dinners” for our family; every Sunday we would focus on a different country.
Not only would we cook food from this country, but we would have the music playing and later watch a movie from this country or based on this country.
For example, when it was Italian Night, I cooked Italian Wedding Soup, made Tortellini Alfredo, and we had Tiramisu for dessert. You could hear “Italian Love Songs” by Dean Martin playing, as well, we watched Under The Tuscan Sun! We became creative with Sunday Dinner.
I decided we, as a family, needed to introduce some culture into Sunday Dinners; our kids, who are in their 20’s, looked forward to these dinners, and would actually ask all week, “what country are we celebrating this Sunday?”
Sunday dinners became a “celebration!”
Life gets busy, and we would miss the odd Sunday, but I would love to start getting back on track with our Sunday Country Celebrations! They were a lot of fun and this also allowed us to connect more. In a way, it was an escape to enjoy Gifts from another Country without physically being there.
I would like to think, if everyone were to venture into Celebrating Countries with their families during a dinner, then we would have more of an understanding for them, which then brings on more appreciation!
Just a thought!

In planning for a full-time RV lifestyle, lets just say, “we are in the visualization” stage! This has been our dream for a very long time; to live on the road and experience every corner of North America!
We visualize all the pictures we will be taking, all the blog posts that will go along with those pictures, and all the people we will meet. The RV Lifestyle is a community within itself and we would love to meet absolutely everyone – or at least try too!
Yesterday, we went and had a peek at a 5th Wheel that is for sale. It is a 2008, 38 foot Wyoming by Coachman. Although, we really need a 2 bedroom, it was nice to take the first step in actually checking one out. By doing this, it really got the ball rolling! With planning The Good Vibes Only Roadshow North American Tour, this is how we see ourselves traveling across the country. I can’t wait!!
Talk about having the butterflies; I’m so excited to be planning this new chapter and visualizing how it is all going to come together. From our home on wheels, to all the venues and RV parks we are going to be staying at – it truly is the ultimate dream for our family.
I would love to hear all your experiences with RV’s, traveling on the road, your RV lifestyle, and how you love it! Feel free to comment and share your experiences!

Every now and then, we get the complete honor of looking after Miss Layla! This cute little dog, who has now become part of our family, along with her Mommy, Joy! I’m referred to as Auntie Jackie, my husband is referred to as Big Daddy and our daughter is now Layla’s cousin…LOL! I love the total creative fun Miss Layla has brought to our family.
Although, we get to fur babysit, every two months or so, we still get to see her every day, as she lives in the building we manage! There is a Gift to everything in life, and this is just one of them.
We have 3 days with Miss Layla in the House! Since our Husky Wiley passed away, November 2017, there has been that void in our home and in our hearts, but Life has placed Layla in our World and it is what has been needed to help heal our hearts.
We, as a family, can’t tell you how grateful we are for this opportunity! Today is also my husbands birthday and looking after Miss Layla is such a gift!
If you find yourself mourning the loss of a family pet; there are options for you as well. Volunteer to spend your time at your local SPCA and give your love to other animals; the energy you will feel from these fur babies will fill the void in your heart. If you have a friend or family member who have animals, offer to spend time with their pets as well; after all, these beautiful animals are family too💖
We are looking forward to creating some memories with Miss Layla the next 3 days; I know we will cherish them for a very long time. Gratitude All The Way!
