In the pursuit of happiness...RV-style

Never before have I imagined my life revolving around an RV. Sure, I've "camped" out with my inlaws in their RV (OK, we never actually stayed overnight in the RV, but it was "camping" during the day none-the-less). Despite growing up in rural Ohio, I definitely prefer my safe, suburban home with all its modern conveniences.

But for fellow blogger, Britt Reints and her family, living in an RV is part of their daily life. This amazingly brave and adventurous family of four has opted to sell all their possessions and travel the U.S. for the next year in an RV. All in the pursuit of happiness. It is the simple life...to the extreme.

Earlier this week, Britt and her family were forced to make an unexpected detour on their planned route (thanks to Hurricane Irene) and thanks to the generosity of a mutual friend, they spent several days exploring the Cleveland area. They were also able to share their story on the local Fox station (it tickled me pink to be able to help get press coverage for a fellow blogger ;)

 
 


Thanks to a hastily scheduled GNO I was fortunate enough to meet Britt last night and she was all I imagined she'd be...


Energetic. Free spirited. Thoughtful. Charming. Fun. And unabashedly open to share her story with us. Thanks, Britt, for allowing me to be a small part in your family's journey in pursuit of happiness.

It was really nice to meet her. Wished she lived in NE Ohio with us. So much fun that night. Wonderful people, convo and wine. The best way to meet someone new.

What a fun time! And, I can't imagine doing the RV thing full time...maybe for like a week! But, wow!
