We live this lifestyle to follow the projects my Husband manages for his work. I work from home, introducing Young Living Essential Oils into people’s lives. We home and roadschool our two girls, ages 10 and 4 1/2, and we also homebirth, which has been our latest adventure! We just had our 2nd homebirth IN our RV, located in the snowy, Colorado Rocky Mountains. It was definitely our most exciting and memorable RV experience to date.
