Our lives have completely transformed since we “sold it all” and chose this nomadic, minimalistic lifestyle.
It’s been almost 8 weeks and it’s amazing how much we really don’t miss any of the “things” from our old life. But, since we buy very little besides food and necessities, a trip to #barnesandnoble
today was a real treat. We attempted what we thought would be a short stop for each of the kids to get a new book. But we ended up spending almost four hours there! 📚
We savored every minute, sifting and sorting through countless books. Some of us kept our shoes on, and some did not. 😂#alabamarules
We have finally arrived in Mississippi and we plan to spend the weekend exploring and trying out Mississippi Mud Pie (thanks for the reco @antoniettahenryphotography
) Who has tried it and where should we go to try some?
Catfish dinner with the family! This is a family tradition when you go to Dyersburg for a visit! Sure do love my family! There used to be many more at the table, but as the years go by - it gets smaller and smaller:(. But what fun we have sitting and reminiscing about all the good times life has given us❤️
We can't thank our guests enough for taking the time to leave us such glowing reviews! Check out what our guests are saying!
Bernice from Kenmore had this to say in her sweet review: "Housekeepers Christine and Julie found a beloved stuffed animal that we left and took the time to put a note on our car and actually looked out for us when we came back and handed it to us." .
Here's another... "Leavenworth any time of year - I have stayed at Icicle Village numerous times due to business travels. For this stay I arrived in late afternoon and was checked in by Trevor. I appreciate the front desk employee’s friendliness and attitude, it seems they actually enjoy their jobs. The rooms are comfortable, and you will use actual glass ware instead of styrofoam cups, for water or coffee. The breakfast is excellent and the restaurant is very good. Thanks Miranda, Trevor, et al." .
A third... "Great time! - We had a great time at the Icicle Village resort. Definitely recommend a room with a fireplace if you are there during the winter time! Well equipped - fridge, keurig and microwave in the room which was nice. Free breakfast was good with a lot of options. Definitely recommend!" .
And a final fourth one from within the last week... "What a nice resort, great on site restaurant and nice perks in the lobby ~ hot cocoa with lots of toppings on a snowy night. It was magical." .

Calm sunset before the storm.
It’s been over a year since the hurricane hit Puerto Rico and we are here to tell you that this place has come back even stronger than before! We visited soon before the hurricane and love Puerto Rico so much that we couldn’t wait to to introduce our daughter to the culture, incredibly kind people and beauty that is the heart of this place. We are lucky enough to be here during one of Puerto Rico’s biggest festivals - The San Sebastián Street Festival, a celebration of the incredible Puerto Rican culture.
If you haven’t been here or even if you have, now’s the time to visit! Between Old San Juan, the beautiful blue beaches and the rainforest, there is beauty and adventure around every corner. And did you know that one of the best ways you can help Puerto Rico and the other Carribean islands affected by the hurricane is to visit and simply contribute to the tourism industry? It’s a win-win!
If you’ve been to Puerto Rico, what was your favorite thing you did during your time here?
You can see it, but there is a lake under all that ❄️!
The morning we were supposed to leave #dubrovnik
but decided to spontaneously explore the Old Town again...
From our airbnb, which overlooked Old Town Dubrovnik, we saw that hardly anyone was the city and decided to go back.
At 7.30am we were walking through the streets of this wonderful and fascinating city - having it all to ourselves.
2 hours later we enjoyed cappuccino and cake on top of Mt Srd ☕🍰.
This place #magnoliamarket
is absolutely inspirational. First time being there and I couldn’t stop looking at all the details. All I kept thinking to myself was, “how in the world? How can someone be so creative? Truly a gift and one that has inspired so many of us. /// #milestomagnolia #magnoliasilos
Wawan just doesn't know what to expect yet. His face, just before his first dive.

Une halte au hasard des routes en Baja California. À Nouveau on ouvre grand les yeux et on prend le temps de profiter de l'instant, presque en dehors du temps 🌵#mexico #mexique #bajacalifornia
Tomotutu Mini Comic Strip. Brownie's Concert
Kinda crazy to think that in less than ONE week, we will go from this winter wonderland to the hot tropics of Central America! 😅
A few people have asked us how we plan to document our travels. Of course, we will be sharing many of our adventures here on the ‘gram, but we also plan to continue writing trip itineraries and tips on the blog, as well as make videos of our travels and real life moments on YouTube. 🎥 From the beginning of our plans, our goal was to create more videos since we love them so much (if anything, for our own keepsakes). And the bonus is the boys are learning videography and editing, so that we don’t have to do it! 🤣🙌🏼 #winwin
Tell us in the comments, if you were to watch our YouTube videos, what kinds of things would you want to see from us? Also, in your opinion, what’s the ideal length of video to watch? Less than 10 min?
Mountain crew putting in some work!
Fri-yay! Who else felt like this was the longest week ever and feel like run jumping into the weekend? 🙌🏼✌🏼
Love love loved having some local tour guides. We sure got the royal treatment and made some epic friends to boot. Cheers to Corey for dust’n off his toy for us to have some fun.
Can you spot Allen, Matt, Lizzy, & Johnny? Swipe left to see them. 😁 These Calico Hills in Red Rock are very easy to blend into, natural camo. I was looking through pics & almost missed the fam in this one.
“Colecione momentos e não coisas”
Foram 29 dias, de carro, cruzando a Bahia, muito sol, família, praia, Cachoeira, zero de rotina, com 3 crianças pequenas... se valeu a pena? VALEU CADA SEGUNDO!
Teve aventura, teve perrengue, teve estresse, mas teve muito aprendizado, muita união, muita diversão, muitas coisas que vivemos juntos e solidificaram ainda mais o que queremos ser enquanto família!
Obrigado a todos que entenderam esse ritmo mais lento da lojinha durante as férias!! Agora vamos retomar os trabalhos com energias e e esperanças renovadas! (Embora fisicamente, eu precise mesmo é de férias dessas férias, rsrs!)
