A Very Merry RV Christmas


Christmas 2014. How in the world is it the end of the year already? With visits to friends and family, travel from Little Rock to Dallas and now to San Antonio, November and December have FLOWN by! We have lots of catching up to do on this ol’ blog, but I thought it would be fun to fast forward to where we are now and share the holiday decorations we put up around the RV.


Our first full-time Christmas has been especially memorable because it’s allowed us to be both in our home and also around family! The ability to pick up and move to various parts of the country has been absolutely amazing. We didn’t decorate our house for Christmas last year because we weren’t home for the holidays, so I had an extra fun time thinking of ways to add holiday cheer this year. We even have a real tree – my first real tree in life I can remember! :)


Since our space it pretty small, but open, it was easy to add holiday touches all around; they even made it into the kitchen!


When we arrived at my parents house, where we’re staying for the next few weeks, Matt surprised me and set up all of the lights outside. We purchased the big colorful globes to use year round, but it’s so exciting to have them up for Christmas.

RV-Christmas-Lights-AwningWe have so much to be thankful for this year. 2014 has been a wild ride, and we couldn’t be happier with where life has brought us. Thanks to each and every one of you who are following along on this little journey of ours. We appreciate your encouragement and support and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

  1. Really beautiful! I’d love to see more photos of the inside of the rig; I love the white walls and dark hardwood floors! What model is it?

  2. I’m so excited for you! What a grand adventure. Love you! Merry Christmas!! Wish we were in San Antonio to see you, but we came up North to hang with my hubby for Christmas and New Year’s.

  3. I saw a post on reddit about Christmas trees in your RV by theAustinot. Know anything about that? Your tree is lovely BTW.

    I noticed your bikes by the 5th. How do you carry the bikes with you? We carry our kayaks on the roof of the truck but we have not found a way to carry our bikes except on some lame rack attached to the rear bumper or ladder. I am worried that there might not be 2 bikes at the end of our journey carrying them that way. Happy Holidays.

    • Hi Chuck and Debbie! I didn’t know about that, I’ll have to check it out! :) Right now we are carrying the bikes in the back of the truck bed by taking off the wheels. We hope to rig up a new system soon! I’m jealous that you guys have your kayaks with you!

  4. We have spend 5 of the last 8 Christmases in our 5th wheel at Cheaha State Park, just east of Birmingham off of I-20. It is the highest spot in Alabama and a beautiful campground surrounded by the state park and the Talladega National Forest. Lots of hiking trails, beautiful vistas for sunrises and sunsets, and many spectacular waterfalls! When you come back to Alabama, you really must go there! And if you are coming in the fall, that’s a perfect time to enjoy the foliage!!

  5. Hey, just wanted to check in and see how you guys are doing. I started following another couple that is traveling/living in their RV and remembered how nice the interior of yours is and wondered how you guys are doing :)
