Black Friday – Our #OptOutside

I can’t think of anything more I want this season, than to love and be loved. When everything is boiled down, that is the most important ingredient of a well-lived life. Last year while living and traveling in our beloved RV we learned a lot of things. Those of you who have followed our journey for a long time were with us for all the beautiful days, funny times, sad moments and everything in between as we explored all 59 US National Parks.

We get asked a lot what we learned the most and I think above all we learned to live a simple, wholehearted, intentional life. We have really discovered that THINGS don’t make us happy.  Experiencing this beautiful earth is with the people that we love – THAT is where the happiness comes from!

“Love people. Use things. The opposite never works.”

-The Minimalists

We try to make an extra effort to avoid the consumerism craziness of the holidays. And one way we have found to kick it all into gear is starting with a Black Friday #optoutside adventure.  We find that if we make an extra effort to be together and to be present (that means no phones people!) during the holidays, that this simple gesture is a holiday gift in and of itself.

More quality time together, more being outside, more experiences, less stuff, less worrying, more hope, more love. That’s all I want.

Happy Holidays friends! Light and love to you all!
