This is the moment when the rubber band is stretched to its max and has been held into that position for longer than needed. All we gotta do is let it go, but slowly. I don't know how that's even possible. Mer is mostly done and ready to go. All she needs right now are curtains (will be installed tonight, it's too hot outside to do anything right now- 113's).
When I got the RV, I loved the quality as it was in good condition, but I couldn't stand the brown. The photographer in me really wanted a home that was photogenic and had better lights. I went back and forth on painting the cabinets because I knew it'd be a lot of work. Once I started, I kept telling myself, "OMG what did I get myself into?!" Thank goodness for friends and my hubby who helped and the transformation of Meraki is simply stunning. I'll let the photos do the talking:

The renovation was tough, but the toughest part was finding home for everything, especially the clothes!!! Look at the mess, it took me TWO days to sort it out because I spent probably 47.5 hours staring at the mess and overthinking it. My stress level skyrocketed from that alone!!!
The final after photos will be posted tomorrow right before we embark on our journey.
Despite a lot of setbacks, the heat wave and more setbacks (making this the longest goodbye ever), we finally will leave tomorrow morning, September 3rd. The sense of hasten slowly worked out perfectly because September 3rd is the date when my brother passed away and tomorrow will be 10 years ago when he left us. So, our "true biz" departure will be a tribute to my brother, John. Here's to you bro, if you were alive, you'd have begged to join us, right? XOXO.
just a mother who fled from society's constraints and is super excited to wake up to the outdoors, remain braless daily and teach her boys the art of boredom and discovery.
