Today I am celebrating two years tiny! Guillaume and I officially finished construction on September 2nd, 2014. We then moved into our tiny abode and hit the road. At the time, we had no idea what was in store for us. It has been a transformational two years. I’ve learned so much about life, material objects, and most of all, myself.
Two Years Tiny. Happy Birthday Tiny House!
Minimalism isn’t a lifestyle you decide to pursue on a whim. Ironically, it is hard work to maintain simplicity! I can honestly say my tiny house is the embodiment of my values. Every item I own has worth in my life.
Living in a tiny house isn’t always easy. There are days when I wish I had more space and more belongings. I am working on being satisfied with what I have, and my tiny house has helped me achieve happiness with less.
The key to happiness is linked to your ability to be satisfied.
Will I always live in a tiny house? I don’t know. Life has a way of changing, and I will continue to adapt. I do know that I will never live grossly outside of my means. My tiny house has shown me that there is beauty in simplicity, and no matter how complicated life gets, I will strive to remember that.
I still love my tiny house after two years. It makes me smile when I pull into my driveway and warms my heart when I open the front door. Walking inside my tiny home is like receiving a hug from a friend or lover. My house washes away all of the tension that I hold in my body throughout the day. I sleep better in my tiny home, and I take better care of myself.
My tiny house makes me a better person.
Thank you for following this blog for the past two years (or three years if you have been with us since we started building in 2013). Guillaume and I have some announcements to make, so stay tuned for more tiny house videos and travel stories. Looking forward to another year tiny!
