Exciting News!

An Airstream in the Woods

If I’m being honest, I’ve been pretty bummed out lately. I’ve been feeling like my country isn’t the place I thought it was. I’m not going to get too political. I try to make a real effort to keep it light, but it’s been difficult for me to keep calm and carry on, as they say. This morning I was looking for something to console me and I came across this quote by Maxine Hong Kingston: “In a time of destruction, create something.”  Continue reading

Ask Melanie: Can I live in an Airstream with a baby?

Can I live in an Airstream with a baby? This week’s question came via direct message from someone who follows me on Instagram. Here’s her question:

“Hi Melanie! My husband, me and my 4-month-old boy are planning to buy an Airstream and live in it for at least one year, do you think it will be possible with an infant?” Continue reading

Advice for Remodeling an Airstream

I’ve been emailed quite a few questions lately regarding advice for remodeling an Airstream. And it’s a tricky question– each Airstream will be different. That being said, there are a few common themes that all Airstream remodels will encounter, so George and I jumped on a video to chat about ’em. Enjoy! And as always, any more questions, you can ask in the comments!

Why We Chose To Live in an Airstream (instead of a tiny house)!

Why we chose to live in an Airstream instead of a tiny house Have you ever heard the saying, “You can have things fast, cheap or easy, but you can’t have all three?” I’m not 100% sure that’s the exact saying, but that iteration would be the short version of why we chose to live in an Airstream instead of a tiny house. But lucky for you, I’m going to tell you the long version of the story like a grandma who has had too much wine. Continue reading

Ask Melanie: Advice for Buying a Vintage Airstream


The last video I posted was our home tour back in August. Yikes. It’s been a while. If I’m being honest, I feel a lot more comfortable writing than I do speaking– especially in a video that will live forever online– but I’m trying to expand my horizons and maybe even expand my readership through a different medium.

Today I’m answering a question from a lovely reader via video. She wanted advice on how to buy a vintage Airstream. So I’m bestowing my infinite wisdom upon you all. Ha!

Please watch the video above, let me know if you like the video format and let me know if you’d like to see more videos in the future.

Thanks ya’ll.
love, love, love,

Link Love: 66

Morning at the Airstream

I’m thinking of trying something a touch different with Link Love and using a photo of what’s going on in my life that week. This semester I had the chance to change my work schedule so I get up much earlier. I see the sunrise most mornings from the Airstream and I try to enjoy it. 🙂

I also think it makes more sense to publish Link Love on Fridays. It’s a delightful, almost-weekend treat and it gives me more time to discover the best of the web for that week. Let me know if you like the new format! Now on with Link Love! Continue reading
