The holidays are upon us folks and as usual this mother camper is not even the least bit ready!
Despite living in a camper for years now, I have never actually decorated or put a tree up in our tiny space. The thought of making this small space even more crowded just gives me anxiety. We usually spend our holidays with my in-laws and I have been perfectly content with it until now.
We have always made it a point to travel back to my husbands parents to spend our Christmas, this year may be different. We are over a thousand miles away from his parents home and have NO desire to make that drive this year. Both of my parents have passed so changing it up and taking the family to one of my parents just is not in the cards anymore.
We own a 38 ft fifth wheel we have renovated to fit our specific family needs, and although its new to us, shes still an older camper and space is super limited. I am constantly purging items (mostly kids junk) turning my table every which way and trying to keep the place clean to give my home on wheels a spacious feel.
This year has been tough for all of us, 2020 has not been nice to anyone but, here we are entering the final months so we ought to make the best of it RIGHT?!
I wouldn’t totally say I am a going to go full blown Christmas throw up on every inch of my camper but, I think my little family deserve a cheerful holiday season and DAMN IT, I deserve it too!! This is our home, this is where we share our most personal and intimate times of our lives, this is where I want to share our Christmas joys as well!
WE ARE ALL WE GOT!!
Your little family is the most important item on your Christmas list every year so make sure you make it WORTH IT!
Lets make the end of 2020 not only memorable for the chaotic wild roller coaster of hell its been but, make it worth looking back and enjoying how we made the best of it!
So, put a tree up mama! Whether its a car tree air freshener hung up on the wall by a tack or a Charlie Browns Christmas tree on a table in the corner, just bring some joy to your tiny space! Hell, we all deserve it.
Christmas 2020, all I’m asking is you come in easy, treat us well, and let us take one happy joyful moment of this year with us into 2021.
