Hi! I’m Jenna. Not too long ago I was working full time at a job I hated, just to pay the rent. Then, one day, I decided to change my life. I downsized, built a tiny house, and found freedom. Now I’m a fulltime happiness addict with the freedom to travel the world, and I’m never turning back. Building a home on wheels, and becoming financially secure, has taken me farther than I ever imagined possible. I love Tiny Houses, and what they can do for their owners. I hope my blog inspires you to follow your own journey to happiness.
