To My Grandkids,
Soo.. I bought a van.. FINALLY!
Let me just start off with this:
I HAVE WANTED A VAN FOR SO LONG. In my freshman year journals even, I would write about buying a van and traveling in it. Being able to go wherever I want, whenever I want, with who ever I want. Wake up in the mountains one day, and on the beach or in the forest the next. I've always been obsessed with the idea of it, and now I am putting it in ACTION in my life! The past couple days have been crazy- but beautiful.
A couple days ago, I was in town with mom and I saw the Hippi Hut Bus (in the picture on the left) and I immediately was like PULL OVER RIGHT NOW I HAVE TO GO SEE THAT BUS!! When we got there, I called the number, and the bus was parked at his house, so he came right out and gave me a tour of it. His name was Tom- super cool guy. He showed me the bus, and told me stories of crazy stories with it. He used to take it to a Rockin The River music festival and sell art from it (and obviously its a work of art in itself). I thought it was soooo cool, but it was just too big for me, and I wanted a small van instead of a full RV bus.. I went back to town and told my friend Xandie all about it, and she FELL IN LOVE WITH IT! Next morning, we went back to his house and checked it out- she loved it- and bought it on the spot. Then I found a little dodge ram van on facebook, right away set up a time to go see it, and FELL IN LOVE WITH IT, so the same day, I went to go see it, and bought it.
That being said, Welcome Charlee to the adventure family :) She needs some love, but anything you want takes work- so I'm excited to start renovating her. (Charlee was the name of the sweet soul who owned the van before me. So grateful I met her, so I had to keep her memories in the van alive as well, and named it after her!)
I didn't plan on buying a van before I go to India, but for a couple reasons, this just fell perfectly in place- so I took a leap and said YES!
I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I'm ready. Not only am I set up to go to India in a couple months, but now I have a home on wheels- can someone pinch me?!?
Some things I have learned from myself these past couple months-
Be GRATEFUL for everything you have, and BELIEVE that you deserve everything you desire!!
I'm so excited to wake up everyday and live this beautiful life
I'm so excited to share my stories with you along the way
I'm so excited to meet you one day.
Even though you don't exist yet, I LOVE YOU!!
Love, Granny J :)
