I come from a long line of gutsy, independent women. Gather the women together on either side of my family, and you'll find a gaggle of saucy (but friendly) women who posses acerbic wit and an acceptance (shall I dare say, pride) of who they are, where they're from, and their willingness to spread their wings and fly.
They are all so inspiring...it is probably a good thing I don't live closer to any family, I might just explode with all the inspiration!
Anywhoodles, my mom is one of those wonderful fearless women. She possesses a pioneer spirit, and it is one of my favorite characteristics. For the past several years, my mom has wanted to get her own little vintage teardrop trailer. I'm sure she would allow my father to accompany her on her adventures...so long as he doesn't object to an aqua colored trailer, possibly decorated with colored lights and pink flamingos.
A couple of weeks ago, Mom and I spent a great weekend together. She drove from Tulsa, picking me up in Memphis, and together we headed back to my childhood stomping ground...White House, TN. Her best friend's lovely daughter was getting married, and we were there to offer moral support, help as we could, and witness one of our favorite people's making of the most solemn (and special!) of vows.
The entire time we drove, I couldn't help but think how much fun it would have been if we could have camped along the way in a oh-so-AFS + mama aqua teardrop trailer.
Just for fun, I did an Etsy search for teardrop trailers and was astounded at how many cute things there are! I imagine a basket full of these items would make a lovely gift for my mama. Do you agree?
