Day 224 of #gratitude for common things: quarantining stuffed animals for review and eviction.
.
I love asking parents the best and worst baby shower gifts. Stuffed animals often come up on that list of worst gifts. One cuddly toy is nice but 40 is not.
.
My child is under three so no one is responsible for this clutter but me, the adult. She won’t miss these.
.
I like @roselounsbury ‘s idea of quarantining little tchotchkes kids amass and wait. If they ask to play with them, you can bring them out. If not? They silently go their way.
.
And always thinking of @roselounsbury saying that kids don’t inherently bring clutter to a home. Adults do.

It’s totally cool to be a fan girl of your own husband, right? 😍 James (Nick) reading an excerpt from his debut novel at One Page Salon onstage last week in Austin! #writerswifelife #proudwife #debutauthor

5 items posted on my local #buynothing group. This evening someone is supposed to be coming by to pick them up. Glad they can be useful again as they don’t fit any of us here anymore! #declutter #donate #cleanhouse #minimalist #minimalism #lessstuff #ownlessdomore #simplicity #passiton

Day 223 of #gratitude for common things: everything I didn’t buy today.
.
It’s been blazing hot and I have been cooped up with a newborn. Today I had the luxury of going out sans baby and I didn’t want it to end.
.
So we went to CVS. And a candy store. And a grocery store. And all I got were these stickers.
.
I enjoyed so much the light and air conditioning and smell of commerce everywhere. I picked up things I wanted to buy...and then put them back.
.
It turns out you can enjoy shopping without buying anything, or at the very least not much.
.
Staying very aware of what you actually need—this is the work of minimalism.

Good job, Mother Nature.

We’ve decided to put a pin in traveling for the next few weeks while Nick puts a serious dent in his next novel. We’re holed up at an RV Park in the Texas Hill Country and just joined a Wine Club, so ya know, life is good. 🙌🏻

One of my favorite shots from a hike earlier this week. It’s been incredible to be out here again, and we are beyond excited to still have a week left!

I’m going to interview @alpine_alexa one day about her badass rig, but not this week it seems. However, you should all go follow her adventures and support her in being a badass skier and rock climber 👌🏻🧗🏼‍♀️⛷🚍

Day 222 of #gratitude for common things: these metal bins, that we have used to organize so many different things.
.
Marie Kondo and many others suggest resisting the urge to rush to the Container Store every time you organize. Often you already have what you need.
.
Before baby number 2, I did a big clear-out, which liberated boxes like these. Now they can be reused to hold diapers and baby clothes.
.
Sometimes I do find great joy in buying the perfect container. But especially for all those short-term needs (like storing diapers and baby clothes) I love to figure out how to use existing containers.

BEFORE AND AFTER. I am totally and utterly in love with Peggy’s bed transformation. I can’t recommend Coastal Cushions in Worthing highly enough. Funny, knowledgable and a VW T25 owner/lover. Now to test this bad boy out...🛌💤🚐💨

After two months of being back in London and semi-homelessness moving from hostel to hostel, I just woke up in my new room! I finally got to take everything out of my phone box sized storage unit (which fits a surprisingly large amount of things) and have begun unpacking. The good thing is that I got rid of many more things before I started travelling than I thought, but there is a lot more culling to do. Next time I go away I want to own less stuff so I’m not tied down by a host of useless possessions, and I’m happy I’m no longer so stuck in this endless cycle of consumerism, and I found different priorities for myself. Getting rid of things is difficult but also incredibly liberating. I’m looking forward to starting the process (although I’m equally terrified by it...) 🙈

I finally grew a pair, y'all.

But you should know that those are not really my pants, I sort of completed my first marathon, a boar tried to poison me, and the answer to “Does the other Rohrer sh*t in the woods?” is yes.

Day 221 of #gratitude for common things: this mobile.
.
Yes, I thought it was a stupid unnecessary piece of junk when my mom bought it (sorry mom). My daughter liked it but my son LOVES it. This plastic lets me shower, change the sheets, run up and downstairs, and even start to prep breakfast.
.
It’s small. It didn’t cost much. And in a few months it’s utility will be up and I can pass it on to another.
.
Babyhood is full of short-term items. The key is to cycle things in and out methodically so you don’t end up with piles of things. Lend things to friends and see what you can borrow. Pass it around.

😁 Today I officially purchased and drove away with my new home, this this super sexy 2011 Mercedes Sprinter van!! I'll be building her out with my dad and happily living in it for the next year or so, driving around the country, and working on my very own full length video project thru @ridebmx featuring a cast of dudes who I feel are some of the greatest individuals pushing BMX in the best directions right now. This is something I've working towards & obsessing over for the past year or so now, and I'm so happy that it's finally a reality!

Alright, So I've been living in my van going on month 7 or so now. Like any big change It's been a little bit of a learning curve/perspective shift, but all in all I've really come to love it so much. So far (for a number of reasons) I've mostly preferred to keep it somewhat private....BUT, since I've been doing this everyone in my life always tells me I should post more about it...so here are some photos of the build on a day where I actually decided to make my bed. I love talking about this stuff, so if you're a van dweller, are interested in doing it, or have any questions at all feel free to message me...I'd be happy to chat or help. Full specs below....

Moody mornings in Washington. It’s pretty damn beautiful here. I’m headed south, end destination: Yosemite Valley. I’m starting the #ClimberSteward volunteer position on August 30th and I’ll be there for 6 weeks teaching the ground walkers about #rockclimbing, hanging out for #climberscoffee on the weekends, going on climbing patrols, and generally helping the @yosemitenps in any way I can. Until then, @mikehatesbolts and I are slowly but surely making our way south. We’re planning on stopping in #Index, Portland, and anywhere else fun friends are found! If you have a ‘must see’ destination between here and there let me know! 🚐✨ ————————————————
