Power of Words

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / August 12, 2016

Well, its been a few days that I’ve been trying to process something that happened to me. You’ve heard the saying, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Well, I’m hear to tell you that’s just stupid. I’m guessing that we can all relive exact words spoken to us that just broke our souls. I know I can. I can remember the smells, the sounds, how I felt and the exact words that were spoken to me that crushed my spirit. I’m going to try to explain what happened the other day without using the language that’s currently running through my mind.

Simplifying 2.0

It was about this time 2 years ago that we wrote about our plans to travel full-time. We spent lots of time researching and talking to other full-time families before we settled on buying our 5th wheel. Everyone we talked to told us to ‘buy your last rig first’ or ‘you’ll never regret going with a big rig’. Well, we found out that what works for most people isn’t necessarily what works for us. While we have loved this rig, it has become too comfortable for us. It's just like our house. We find our selves in different rooms often and staying inside way too much. That is not what we had in mind when we decided to travel full-time.

Today I’m going go make a case or three for why you may not want to use WordPress for your site, though. And tell you why we moved from WordPress to ExpressionEngine and finally to Craft CMS. Ready? Here it goes.

We Sold our RV!

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / July 27, 2016

Ya’ll!! I am so excited! (I guess when I’m excited the country in me comes out) We did it! We have found such an amazing family to live in our RV (Rocksteady). We have prayed and prayed for the right family to come along and 4 days before our ad expired on RVTrader, we got the call! All that worrying, and stress was not needed. I should have known. Every time we have had a worry or doubt, God has showed up in such a big way. I don’t know why, but it surprises me every time!

Hey Longneckers! How’s the healthy eating going? 

Well, I’m glad you asked! We have made one little change to our plan. While I would love to be able to say that we eat perfectly all the time, that just isn’t going to happen. When we are traveling to amazing places, you better believe we will be trying the local cuisine. So, we need a plan that is going to allow for us to not beat ourselves up if we want to eat our weight in tacos when we make it to Mexico!
