Matt just put this video together so I thought it’d be fun to post it out there! To see the previous footage of us being introduced to the bus, check out the last post by clicking here!
This next clip is our first visit to the bus as the new owners! Shanti was so little, my goodness how time flys. Before you click the link, let me share with you that it was a super hot day in Northwest Florida and our little girl was barely 5 months old, in other words, not cut out to melt in the smoldering heat. I took it upon myself to protect her by driving to a local grocery store (where we walked around in the air conditioning drinking iced beverages, snacking on samples and talking to strangers) while Matt willingly battled the heat in order to start the transformation. For what it’s worth, he did it with a smile with no complaints.
Here’s a minute peek of our first day working on the skoolie!
Now back to the present moments, well kind of. Last month on January 17th, Shanti had a birthday and was a happy little superstar just smiling her way through her first steps.
Between MiMi, Gam Gam, friends and other family, this little girl was spoiled with love, treats and more love!
Momma bragging moment: I made the cakes for each gathering! No dairy, no artificial anything and absolutely no food dye… just coconut products and blended berries for the pretty colors!
A month later was my moms birthday, so on February 18th we went out for a girls day!
Another wonderful event from this last month was a visit from a long time friend from abroad! If you’ve been following this blog since the beginning, you’ve seen him appear in at least 20 posts and probably more ranging from several steins at Oktoberfest, to quirky parties in Greece, Fútbol in Europe, good times in Barbados, California, Amsterdam and now Florian is in Florida!
…and a bigger surprise was his sweet girlfriend Tatjana joined!
We didn’t take to many photos, but here’s a video of Florian making Shanti laugh… worth a look if you need a smile!
And here’s Florian teaching Shanti how to snap. I freakin love it!
That’s all for now folks.
Keep smiling and remember that too much attention on the destination takes away from your beautiful present journey.
