We are working on the bus, tearing stuff out so we can build it back up. Once we finish the bus we will be ready to go traveling and start the next part of the adventure. I am enjoying where we are now, we are learning more about the bus and the all the different systems that we are going to be installing but I am excited to get on the road, a lot. One of the things I'm excited to do is meet with doulas, midwives, birth workers and anyone who has an interested in maternity care in the United States. I want to blog about all these wonderful people and see what the culture of birth is in their corner of the country.
So we had finally found a bus! We had looked online contacted a ton of bus companies, went and saw a few buses. We even drove into Pennsylvania for a bus that the seller didn't even bother to come and show it to us. Upside, we found a great little brewery in Chalfont that had awesome Buffalo tofu bites and terrific beer.
We got our bus from Wolfington Bus Company in Exton, PA and it could not have been a better experience. Jim Wofington was so super helpful and made the process so simple. We had a friend or a friend with a CDL drive it home for us per Jim's request and our awesome neighbor backed it onto our driveway. We were so excited to finally be bringing this bus home after months and months of searching. The dream had become a reality and now we can start converting this into something super special.
I love long drives to clients that aren't around the corner. As a momma with 3 very energetic kids, this is my quiet time. I think, I listen to music or podcasts and I relax. On one of these drives I was contemplating the meaning of life, my life more specifically and how I could live more simply but have more. I know that sounds insane but its not really. Is it? Maybe? Lol.
My husband and I had been talking a long time about making some shift. We wanted to live more. We felt pinned down by some of the conventional choices that we had made. Our house, although super cute, costs us a lot of money and time. The choice to stay in a state that is one of the most expensive states in the country because of reason we don't even seem to remember anymore. When we first met and got married our dreams were way different than the typical suburban life we have. Now we felt we were at a turning point.
