Tiny House in Transition

Tiny House in Transition

I wanted to address something a lot of you have already guessed: Guillaume and I parted ways earlier this year. We remain close friends, and we are supporting each other through this transition. Did the confined space of the tiny house break us up? No. This is just life. It doesn’t always go the way you plan.

So what’s next for Tiny House Giant Journey?

I will be living in the Tiny House, and I’m setting up a little homestead at Mt. Hood Tiny House Village in Oregon. Salies (my dog) is keeping me company. This blog will continue to be updated by me.

2016 has been a year of transition. 2017 holds new adventures.

Travel writing and minimalism are still my passions. They continue to drive me, even when life turns me in another direction. From now on I will NOT be traveling with my Tiny House in tow. Instead, I’m saving more money by parking in one location. I’ve already booked two trips for early 2017: Taiwan and Peru! Expect more travel posts and photos.

Guillaume also has big plans for the future. I won’t spill the beans. When he’s ready, I’ll update you on his projects.

There has definitely been a transition period now that I live alone in my tiny home. I have twice as many chores, and twice as much closet space. For the first time in two years, I can purchase a new pair of shoes without getting rid of something else. There are certain high shelves that sit empty and out of my reach, and that makes me sad and drives me insane at the same time. In an effort to make the space more “me,” I’ve purchased a few girlie, fluffy pillows for the couch, changed a few decorative knobs, and planted a garden.

My Tiny House is becoming a new person, and I am too.

TransitionI hope you will continue to follow my journey as it turns down a new path. Thank you!

    Wow, what an adventure you two had and now you’re off on your next one. Breakups can be tough, but then I suspect you are too. Good luck to each of you and I look forward to your next post. Hang in there girl…..

    Sorry to here about your break up….Glad you have Salies for company……Happy to see you have settled in Oregon and hope you love it here. I have watched your journey from the beginning and love reading your blogs. Saw you all at the Portland Tiny House Conference a few years ago. I have missed the open houses at Mt Hood Village, but hope to make one soon or just come up and do a rental for a couple of days.

    I am really sorry for the breakup…I can imagine how hard it could be for you to collect enough strength and braveness to open your life to the world. I wish you all the best for your coming journey, I am sure it will be full of joy and beautiful new experiences! And we-your followers- are with you and sending a lot of positive energy to you!
    Best wishes from Hungary!
