Always Believe

In You


Hello World

Today after I learned that I am 400 miles away from the predicted path of hurricane Irma and won’t be affected by it I spent the whole day making window curtain insulation panels and getting shelves put up cause I decided that if Southern Florida needs help I want to be able to go there in the bus and help being that I’m in Florida too!!! So I’m totally on a mission get this done  πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™

Luckily the bus is really really insulated well yet I wanted to make something that covered the windows for privacy, that I could put up and take down easily and that helped insulated the windows themselves cause they are big and there’s 10 of them… So I came up with the idea to use a thin insulation (reflectix)  that prevents condensation and cover it with a Navy blue material so the inside at night matched the theme of my blog Hello World Goodnight Universe and it turned out perfectly… πŸ€—β€πŸ€—.


I still need to add the Velcro and finish decorating them yet here’s what it looks like so far (excuse the tape I used to hold them in place lol) it’s all coming together and I’m so so excited and so grateful πŸ™.

The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful to ask that have helped me get this farπŸ˜€β€πŸ€—.


I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know.

Life Is Filled With Ups and Downs

In’s and Outs and Round Abouts


Hello World,

Tonight I was thinking a lot about my trip and seeing so many people that were a huge part of my life growing up and mainly one person that brought back so many memories and love that I thought I had let go of or just forgot and that really wasn’t the case because they never left my heartπŸ€”πŸ™„

When we look back on our lives there’s so many things and people that came and went yet for some reason or another things changed… 

We look for the why’s and the reasons… the why it didn’t work out.. the what happened and more yet there really aren’t any answers other than it’s just the way life took its course… πŸ€”πŸ™„

Just remember you wouldn’t be where you are today if you didn’t go through all those yesterday’s…

Some things are meant and some things are not yet love is forever cause it stays in your heart…. 

Good times will happen and bad times don’t last long.. yet they both make you who you are and they make you real strong… 

So hold your head high and smile along the way… Cause those memories in your heart will forever stay!!!

Goodnight Universe β€πŸ€—

Slow Down

Enjoy Every Moment


Hello World,

Since I’ve been here in New Jersey seeing old friends and family… I’ve had a wealth of different emotions going on… Flashbacks from my childhood, my teenage years and more… Then it hit me… 😱 πŸ™„

All our lives we rush rush rush… We rush to become a teenager, we rush to get out of high school, we rush to graduate collage, we rush to find a career, we rush to have a family, then we rush to retire, we think about all the things we wanted to do and wonder where the time went and why we never did things we wanted to do as a child… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”..

Do the things you want to do and take your time to do it… So when you look back on your life you can smile cause you made it through it… πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—

Time is very precious and it goes by really fast…. So take the time to slow yourself down and make every moment last…πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—

Age Is Just A Number

It’s Just How Long You’ve Been You


Hello World,

Lots of laugh, lots of tears and lots of omg Ricci you haven’t changed a bit LOL LOL… and that’s what made me write this poem cause it’s true… 

Age is just a number it is very true.. your age is just the number that shows how long you’ve been learning to be you… It really doesn’t matter what you do or what you’ve done… As long as you are true to yourself then your life will always be fun!!!

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—

Everything Starts With A Dream

And Dreams Do Come True


Hello World,

This evening I was talking to a friend about the bus and my travel goals and I felt an almost overwhelming sense of AHHHHHHHH πŸ€—πŸ€— 

A feeling that’s almost unexplainable yet at the same time it was a feeling of accomplishment knowing that my dream is coming true right before my eyes β€πŸ€—

Everything we want in our lives start as a dream.. A dream that goes from a wish, to hope, to belief, to determination, to a goal and with work, time and patience our dreams do come true… 

Never ever stop believing in your dreams.. Never ever stop believing in YOU πŸ€—β€πŸ€—
I’m down to only needing help to get the 2000 watt inverter and the 200 watt solar panel kit for me to have electricity inside without using the engine batteries while stopped at night.

When You Believe

You Do Achieve


BUS UPDATE 🚐🚐 🚐🚐 🚐

OK so I originally was going to remove the wheelchair ramp until today I figured out how to manually lock it into place and OMG I now have a back patio that has a 1500 pound weight limit that I can even stand in without my head touching the door when it’s open..WOO HOO so so excited… Yet that meant floor plan change again πŸ™„πŸ€” this makes the 3rd time I’ve changed it πŸ™„πŸ€”

Started painting the ramp white and it started looking way too much like a ambulance πŸš‘ so changed my mind again and am going to paint it blue tomorrow to match the inside walls and door 

So after I decided where I wanted the kitchen sink cabinet I moved it over into position and it got like a glove. Now mind you I now have to remove the chair I was gonna keep but that’s all good cause it truly fits perfectly as you’ll see.. tomorrow the rest of the chairs come out, the cabinet gets secured and the sink and countertop is getting done πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ I’m so excited I’m going to pop… And that’s what made me think of this poem tonightπŸ˜πŸ€”πŸ˜

Don’t ever ever ever give up on your dreams cause when you believe they become easy to achieve ❀

Still need help with a couple things I need to complete it so if anyone know where I can get a 2000 watt inverter, an electric cooler, and a 200 watt solar panel kit please let me know. My gofundme link in my bio is still active and those are really the only things left that I’m needing help with to complete the bus and begin my journey to sprinkle my son’s ashes and heal… The full story is under the picture of me and my son in the campaign just click on β€œRead More” to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and light

Your Path Is Your Own

No One Can Take It For You


Hello World,

Through life you’ll get all kinds of people telling you what you should or shouldn’t do, they will try to tell you how to think and how you should feel too…


Everyone has an opinion and they all have their own path and  journey too… What may be good for others may not be good for you…. Don’t worry about others, what they say or what they do… Cause when you focus on others you stop focusing on you!!!

You all know my story and I cannot do this alone. I’m only $628 away from getting the bus so I can begin making it livable. I was able to get the bus insured and registered and now I only need help to pay the mechanic to make it road ready and safe for me to drive. 

The active link is below… Please help if you are able or share the link if you can… I’m ready to begin my journey to heal and with your help I can!!! 

Much love to you all and thank you thank you I AM Grateful
