OUR LITTLE TRAILER

Well, we did it! At one point I didn't think this post would ever happen, but here it is. I'm so excited to share with you our newest addition. Please meet our little vintage trailer. It is a 1965 Aristocrat Lo-Liner. I love this little thing, every time I look at it I want to giggle like a little girl finding a brand new puppy under the Christmas tree!
It's not perfect, but neither are we! So it's a match made! For it's age though, its in really good condition, just needs a little love to spruce it up (well, maybe a little sweat too). It's just as cute inside and has some great features, my favorite is the kitchen area with the original stove/oven and icebox...
There are a lot of original touches, which I find quite charming and feels a bit like you're entering a time capsule...
We brought it home on Saturday to a lot of happy faces. The kids love it and have been playing in it calling it their "ship". At one point we were all able to just sit in it and chat, which for me is a great start to this journey...
 

 
  
It's going to take a bit of elbow grease to bring it into its full glory, but already, I'm excited for the memories that lie ahead in this little thing and so grateful that it's finally all ours...
Today's Reflection:
We've been going back and forth on this purchase, weighing the pros against the cons. Sometimes it's easy to just jump up and yell "I'll take it!" but what comes after you have it? We didn't know if our money should be spent on a trailer, we try to be conservative with our money, but we also knew that this trailer would provide a lot of family time opportunities. We were diligent in searching, and took the time to research and look at a few. Even with that, I think our hearts could not be settled on taking this leap until we asked God for a little help. There are the big things that I have always prayed for but sometimes it's the little things that I really need to have him guide me on. My husband is better at this than I am, and he continually prayed that God lead us to the right decision. I feel like God cleared the way for us and lead us to this little thing. I know it can sound silly to thank God for a beat up trailer, but I imagine like any father, he was happy we asked him for help and his opinion. He wants us to come to him with everything, even the things that may not matter much to others, matter greatly to him.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take."
-Proverbs 3: 5-6
