Update from Iowa

Just wanted to drop in here quickly and let you know that we haven’t dropped off the face of the earth! :) I will soon be writing a longer update and will continue to blog about our West Coast adventures. But for now, I wanted to let you know a few things:

*We’re in Iowa. Contrary to where I am at in my blogging (currently Los Angeles!)…we have settled down in the heartland for some rest and relaxation. Well, of course that was the original plan…but we’ve been rather busy!

*We are soon heading to Colorado and have demos in Omaha and Denver. Stay tuned for more details.

*Yes, I will be posting photos of the new RV soon. How soon? I’m not sure…but soon. :) We’re still building a few things and putting on the finishing touches. It’s been great though…we love the extra space and smoother ride.

*I am now working part time as my mom and dad’s personal assistant…which is GREAT because I can do it from anywhere in the country and it’s a steady paycheck. Yay! However…right now it’s taking up most of the limited free time I have. It won’t always be that way…just right now while I catch up on things. My photography business also keeps me hoppin’… it’s such a blessing to do what I love for a living!

*Matt’s been busy working at my parent’s stores doing maintenance, training new managers, etc. He’s also learning all the ins and outs of our new RV and enjoying every minute of it.

*We’re still planning on traveling this next year, but as of right now…we’ll be taking the year “off” to decompress, mentally process everything we’ve done and seen this last year…and work on writing some eBooks. We’re going to go back to our favorite spots, but won’t be doing as many demos/stops as last year.

*I haven’t been blogging as frequently on any of my blogs (rest assured, I will resume soon!), but if you want to find out what we’re up to…check out our Flickr photostream (which usually has a few photos of where we are currently living) and my Twitter account. And…if you’re reading this in a blog feeder/reader, you might not realize that I do also update our current location on our home page (not the blog).

Thank you so much for “following along” on our journey…and for being so patient. More to come!


  1. Most importantly, your dress is fantastic. Life is good with a dress as hot as that.

    Love you!

  6. Hi Sarah~

    My husband and I read the article about the LLT in the DM Register this past spring. We have a blog called
    A Bus for A Bus which has been on hold, but today some local homeschoolers asked me about it, and encouraged us to keep at it. These friends mentioned you all and that you are in central Iowa as well! I wanted to give you a shout out and tell you how much I love your story and what you are doing with your RV. Maybe we will have to come to one of your workshops. I love the Ebook idea! Go for it!!!
