It’s Saturday, July 30, 2016, and we’re finally in our motorhome!

We’ve spent the last month purging our stuff so we could move out of the home we were renting in Ridgefield and into our motorhome.

And man, talk about a PROJECT!

It’s been a ton of work. And kudos to Lacie for bearing the brunt of the work. I’ve been busy with a couple big copywriting projects this last month so Lacie has been the one doing most of the “purging.”
