And now that dream is coming true.
Honestly, I’m completely kidding. Gil and I signed a contract on a house in Savannah. It’s 1500 square feet but a significant downsize for us. I’m sincerely jazzed.
Gil…is a builder. He grew up with a dad who was a builder. He’s always been the bigger is better type. I…am not.
I’ve been preaching minimalism for years, but frankly now that we’re headed in that direction, I’m flat-out terrified. Well, that’s too strong of a word.
I’m nervous. Can we do it? Can we really create a functional space like the one I’ve been dreaming up in my head?
I really just want to move into an Ikea catalog.
Forget all that messy life stuff.
Too bad our family consists of four people who have big personalities and plenty of junk to go with them.
It will be fine. Really, I’m excited. Less stuff, more life.
Did I mention we have less than a month to do this?
It will be great.
Oh, and please read this about tiny houses and be prepared to laugh your head off.
