No, I didn’t change religions or join a cult, but I have been converted to something I never thought I would. Let me give you some background here.
I’m from a fairly big city, I’ve never been a huge outdoors person, the most outdoorsy thing about me is that I listen to country music… outside. I’ve never really been camping, I remember only going to a trailer once in my life. We mostly stayed in cottages and hotels. My husband on the other hand went camping multiple times a year whether in a tent or a trailer. It’s his favourite kind of vacation.
Ever since we’ve been married we’ve gone camping once or twice a year but only trailer camping for me, and it’s still was not my favourite. Fast forward to now with a baby. We went camping the other weekend with my husband’s family and his parents had just gotten a nice big new trailer. Baby T slept in her playpen next to my bed and the days were so simple and chilled. We spent so much time outside in the fresh air. With everything going on right now it was exactly what I needed. Who knows how long it will be before we can travel again, camping could be the only kind of vacation we get to take for the next few years.
So two days after coming home from that trip we bought a trailer of our own. I spent the next couple of days cleaning it and stocking it with supplies and a few decorative items to make it feel homey. We felt bad that Baby T’s early wake-up time affected everyone on our campsite so we figured having our own space would be for the best. Our maiden trip is next weekend and for the first time in my life, I am excited to go camping. Yes Dan (my husband), you read that right. Your wife is excited to go camping. You better take advantage of it while it lasts.
