The last two years have been the best and most challenging of my life. After ten tears of teaching in the public school trenches, I became a first time mother, went through (first and hopefully only!) divorce, and decided to make a huge lifestyle change to be a full time mother. This required quitting a job that no longer brought me joy, and with it giving up some security and comfort. Living full time in a Westfalia van brings a simplicity to life but has its on challenges. This sacrifice brought me an opportunity to raise my daughter full time and teach her daily life lessons while on the road. I am a happier person, feel lighter and more present, and most importantly: I am a better mother to Alice. I have faith we will get through these hardships with support from the community we are finally starting to build. Sometimes it takes getting out there to find your people- and mine seem to find me now thanks to awesome Alice and her friendly demeanor. This life on the road has changed my perspective already and it has only been 5 months! So excited to see what is to come and working to find peace while waiting...
