It always amuses me to read my husband's blog. I rediscover the reasons I married him at each reading; mainly because he thinks so differently than I. He loves research whereas I am too impatient to endure it. He is methodical and practical when buying; I am emotional and spontaneous. The process of choosing our RV is sooooo laborious to me but as with all our other big purchases, I can rest assured that my DH will make the most practical decision possible. He has patiently collected information about what I want: It has to be comfortable with pleasing decor. The kitchen has to be functional as we love to cook and bake. There HAS to be closet space because of my "essentials". And (tee-hee) what I think is essential may somewhat conflict with what is most practical. I love clothes and shoes and makeup. Most women would relate that it is a big dilemma to decide just which shoes are possible to live without. This year before we commit to the new lifestyle will give me time to evaluate the essentials. I will pay more attention when we go on vacations this year and picture life with what I have in my suitcase. The thing that fills me with joyous anticipation is remembering the time we first married we didn't have much, yet were extremely happy. It seems we will be going full circle to a simpler life but certainly richer because
at this time of our lives we have the opportunity to enjoy each other, to travel and explore, and love one another again like honeymooners. I can't wait!
