My husband Jim grew up in the back of a Volkswagen van....well if you believe his nostalgic version of his childhood summers. So for the last 3 years he's been saying we REALLY needed to get one. Well...I finally gave in, he bought one. Don't tell him, but I'm glad we did.
I've come to realize that owning a Volkswagen van is a bit of a club. Everyone we pass on the road in another Volkswagen waves...
There is something truly amazing about getting back to nature and spending some time in the dirt as a kid. We spent our first weekend in our "new" van at Shaver Lake in the California Sierras. Spending time as a family in nature always recharges me.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer...remember to take some time to relax and get outside. It will do you a world of good.
"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature."
