Control and stuff, or experiences?

Any sense of control you have in your lives is simply an illusion that you’ve allowed to persist. Your life could end in the next few minutes, or you could live to 120 with modern medicine.

Waking up to the Epic Mini Life dream. Or, WE’RE LIVE!

This morning started like any other day. Rossi at my feet, Hayden next to me, and Heather pushed way too far to the edge of the bed to be comfortable. We’re sleeping on a full size mattress in a space built for a queen, with 90 pounds of dog negotiating for space. Zizi is in … Read more Waking up to the Epic Mini Life dream. Or, WE’RE LIVE!

Tiny/Small living and reaching a larger audience

A friend of mine (from Boulder) offered this reply to one of our Facebook posts. I started to write a simple reply, but it turned into enough to warrant its own blog post.

Pioneer Woman, truck stops, and periods.

24 (twenty four) items per page: Pages of tampons at Target: 4 Pages of max-pads at Target: 4 Pages of panty liners at Target: 2 Why in hell do I know this? More importantly, why does it matter?

How many horses does it take to pull your life?

I stumbled upon this post declaring the “covered wagon” as the first tiny home. This totally makes sense. In fact, I was thinking this morning about how a pickup pulling a 5th wheel is the logical evolution of the horse and covered wagon. Everything we need will be packed nicely inside of Leeloo (our name … Read more How many horses does it take to pull your life?
