Advice for Remodeling an Airstream

I’ve been emailed quite a few questions lately regarding advice for remodeling an Airstream. And it’s a tricky question– each Airstream will be different. That being said, there are a few common themes that all Airstream remodels will encounter, so George and I jumped on a video to chat about ’em. Enjoy!

My Birthday Trip to Seattle

The Space Needle in Seattle

This picture is unedited! The sky was really that blue!

My birthday this year was a big one. I turned 30. Eeek! I’ve been a little anxious about getting older, but George, my husband, softened the blow with a trip to Seattle. I didn’t know where we were going until a week before the trip, so I didn’t have much time to plan. And that was A-OK. In my everyday life, I plan like a squirrel on steroids, but I don’t like to plan every detail of trips. It takes the adventure out of it. Continue reading
