My Obsession with the Tiny House Movement

Have you guys heard of The Tiny House Movement?

“Simply put it is a social movement where people are downsizing the space that they live in. The typical American home is around 2600 square feet, while the typical small or tiny house is around 100-400 square feet. Tiny Houses come in all shapes, sizes and forms but they focus on smaller spaces and simplified living.”  – The Tiny House Life

I am totally obsessed.

Not sure if I could ever live in one, with both the hubs and the kid. But, if it was just me? I’d totally go for it.

There’s just something so minimalist and simplistic about it all.

A simplicity I crave.

With all the crap we collect, how awesome would it be to just chuck almost all of it and live small?

Even if it doesn’t interest you, like it does me, you should totally check it out. It’s so fascinating.

A couple of my favorite sites to visit are RowdyKittens and The Tiny House Family.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Today is my 37th birthday. To honor this momentous occasion, I decided to give myself a gift.

What kind of gift you ask? A swift kick in the butt, with a side of reality check.

For too long, I’ve been crawling through life unhealthy – both physically and mentally. I woke up today with a renewed spirit. You know the phrase, “Sick and tired of being sick and tired?” That’s where I’m at right now.

I’m committing to myself, that I’m going to take better care of me from the inside out.

My #1 goal is to take care of myself so I can be at the top of my game for, well, life. And I believe simplifying my life is the best way to go. That means I’m cutting back on things that take time away from what I value most – these two:

These two. ♡♡

I’ll still be hanging out here, and in my usual online spots just not as much. I’ll just be out enjoying life more and writing/posting about it less. I don’t want to miss out on something important because I’m trying to figure out a way to capture it all in 140 characters or less.
