Welcome to our House On Wheels or as we like to call it our “H.O.W.” pronounced hoe. Yes, we’re a little silly that way. 🙂
I’m Wendy, a self-proclaimed American Gypsy traveling throughout the country with my husband, who happens to be my best friend, biggest fan, and partner in craziness. We packed up our traditional house in Connecticut in January 2012 to travel for Mr. Gibberish’s career in the oil industry. After spending four months living in hotels, we decided to purchase a travel trailer and couldn’t be happier with our choice.
Since this last post (wow, years ago!) we have upgraded out truck and rig to the combo you see in the header. It’s 2002 F350 and a 2008 38″ Carriage Carri-Lite with 5 Slides. We love this combo and look forward to several years of nomadic bliss! By the way, the new names are Cash (for the truck) and Carri for the rig. Yes … Cash & Carri 🙂
Being a nomad has been a true awakening for me and certainly one of the most exciting of my “40 something” years so far! There is something very liberating about knowing your children have grown up and safely flown the coop and that it’s time for mother hen to spread her wings.
Deciding to live on the road full-time was a giant leap from what I had always considered a “normal lifestyle” for sure. But today I wouldn’t trade nomadic for whatever normal is for anything. Moving on from place to place, following my husband’s career and having all the time in the world to write and experience new places and people was something I had only dreamed about; now it’s my reality.
Here are a few more tidbits about me…
I have two grown sons who make me proud on a daily basis.
As of June 22, 2015 I am a grandmother to a beautiful baby girl named Sarah Annabelle. She’s my little Tinker Bell 🙂
I love to cook and try new recipes.
I can’t function without coffee in the morning.
I love beer, wine and a good margarita. (Maybe that’s why I need the coffee??)
I do a little freelance writing here and there. Maybe someday I’ll finish that novel.
In addition to writing, I’ve developed a passion for health and fitness. It’s taken my nearly 50 years to really nurture this passion, (eeeek!) but now that I’m on board I’m loving the journey. As a matter of fact, I love it so much I decided to become a full-time Team Beachbody Coach. Contact me today if you’d like to be a part of one of my private Motivation and Accountability Groups on Facebook or if you’re interested in the Team Beachbody Coaching opportunity.
