End of our Vegan Fast and our car got stolen on our cross country trip home

Hi Everyone! This is going to be a short blog posting. Travis and I had our car stolen a few days ago, from Oakland, CA. To make the long story short, over $15,000 of our things were in the car (we are moving back home to VA).   My violin, all of my jewelry, all of our winter clothes, all of the shoes we own (except the sneakers we had on our feet) and so on and so forth. You can only imagine how stressful it has been. Thank goodness we have a great insurance company and we are hoping to get back the money’s worth of things stolen from us. They found the car, but everything was out of it. Come to find out, a crack-addict stole it and sold everything for crack. Then he smoked the crack in the car and also peed all over everything. Violated doesn’t even begin to express how we feel. We feel very blessed to have our health, each other, and our loving family to go home to, but it has been stressful. God has a reason for all of this and we realize that. Counting our blessings is one of the top priorities on our list everyday.

Yesterday was the last day of our 30 day Vegan fast and I must say, WE FEEL GREAT! I have committed to not eating dairy again and also no meat at all, except maybe an occasional fish here and there (like a few times a month). I feel the best I have ever felt! Vegan food is by far the most tastiest food in the world. As far as Travis goes, he is not making any promises he says, but he won’t eat dairy, meat (other than seafood), and we plan to eat all organic and non-processed foods. Eating clean is the way to go! “Eat to Live, Don’t Live to Eat”

Sorry the blog is so short, I just have a lot to do. Itemizing everything and getting everything ready to hit the road tomorrow (in our rental car) is keeping me busy! Hope everyone is doing well 🙂 Travis will make sure to blog about Big Sur and San Fran with tons of pictures to come! Cheers!

Day 16, 17, 18, and 19,

I apologize to all of our blog followers, We have been moving and haven’t been able to keep up with the blog.  We were dealing with packing, moving company, and another sewage overflow.  It is so amazing to free ourselves … Continue reading

Day 15: WE ARE MOVING BACK TO THE EAST COAST SOON!

San Diego has been such a great experience. We have really enjoyed each other and the amazing scenery. God has surely blessed us in many ways and we are so very fortunate to have this experience under our belts. With that being said… I’M SO EXCITED WE ARE MOVING HOME TO VIRGINIA BEACH! My Mommy and I have such a close relationship and being close to her means more than words can express. I can’t wait for her to wrap her arms around me! There are tons of people I can’t wait to see, but she is at the top of my list! Such a special relationship we have. Travis and I are THRILLED to go on this 20 day cross country trip and have so many stops to make. We will make sure to keep everyone updated on what we do and where go! So exciting!

 

We had a yard sale today and sold about $600 in stuff! It’s such an amazing feeling to purge and just get rid of things. It was a long day, but we were so thrilled to get rid of things and just move forward: )
