Hello Beautiful Souls!!
In recent times, my husband (Dwayne) & I have been on quite the journey of self discovery ... one where our own mortality and what our 'future' looked like was explored ...
Uncertainty about how we would get by in our Retirement led us to one of the most exciting decisions we've ever made ... We bought a Bus!!
We called her 'Utopia' and the lengthy process of converting her from a City route bus to our dream home ... (all DIY) ... began.
That was November 2019.
Fast forward to March 2020 ... Covid-19 has changed life as we knew it ...
(I am of the personal opinion that the World will be a much better place ... Patience, Kindness, Gratitude and Love will be much more widespread) ... in the meantime, we live as we need to ... for many of us apart from loved ones.
We both found ourselves in the Centrelink lines, along with so many others in Hospitality and Retail ... unsure of what our immediate futures held in store!!
We were fortunate enough to have supplies and could continue with our bus build. The question came up ... WHY were we 'waiting' for retirement to live in our beautiful bus? Of course financially, we're not quite ready to retire. BUT ... we can live in our dream home ... Dwayne still has his job ... and I can do what I LOVE ... design ... create ... help others! I will have my beautiful jewelry, accessories and artwork available for purchase online here at Utopian Living soon and have just opened my beautiful Utopian Living shop right on the roundabout in Wauchope, NSW!
We can certainly continue working ... all while living the 'Bus Life' dream ... living a much more sustainable lifestyle with the ability to change our 'view' at the turn of a key!
We're so excited to be following our dreams!
