Welcome Aboard


Back in the Garage!

As many of you know, I had to step away from my toasters after my Mom was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2019 .  I took on a new job in Delaware so I could be closer to her and my family. The good news is that Mom was given a good bill of health this February. But then…Coronavirus happened.

It’s really difficult not being able to hang out with her now, but all of us agree that no matter how successfully we’ve self-isolated, it’s not worth the risk of exposing her compromised immune system. 

I’ve had to tuck my toaster rentals away for now. And while I might resurrect the dream of a toaster farm someday, for now, it’s on the back burner. The aluminum silver lining in this fog however? Garage time is back, in plentitude:) And Jen the grease monkey is back:)

An Airstream Aloha

Who knew that one of my favorite hobbies, glamping, would become the hip thing to do. Even more crazy though… who knew that delivering glamp to the camp would turn into my next business, lol.

I grew up spending my summers on the South Shore, where the Atlantic meets the Indian River Inlet and Bay in Delaware. My grandparents had many trailers there over the years, nestled between the ocean and the inland marshes.

My parents would take us away on the weekends with only $20 cash in their pocket. There was no phone, (and obviously no cable, no internet and no Netflix, lol) but most importantly…no worries. We spent our days playing in the sun, with mom having to fish us out of the ocean, long after the life guards had left for the day. (And yes, shockingly, we all lived to tell about it, lol.)

The happiest days of my life were spent on the shoreline in an aluminum trailer by the sea. And for that reason, I often refer to the beach as “where I grew up.”

I want to return there again and bring YOU with me, in an Airstream:)
