On Prioritizing People You Love & Experiences

Today, I have an audio segment to share with you. In the audio, I talk about our recent trip to Portland, making time for people you love, investing in experiences, and “The Big Tiny.”

    Per usual, love the photography! It inspires a joyful exhale and coupling it with the audio was wonderful. I received Dee’s book yesterday and was surprised that it is so much more than the making of the tiny house, it truly is a beautiful story of life transition and yes, I am enamored of taking the Minimalism train I am on all the way to a tiny home. Next stop, Dee’s book tour here in Los Angeles! Grateful for the inspiration. 🙂

    Sounds like a great weekend!!! Really liked viewing the pics and listening to the audio. Bought The Big Tiny yesterday & am enjoying it!

    I am new here via Just a little Less (and to minimalist blogs which appeal to me) I just have to say I love your photographs. And is that your house, if so it is gorgeous.

      Hi Cait,

      Welcome! I’m happy you like my photos. We live here. 🙂

    Hi Tammy,

    As always I love listening to your happy podcasts! Looks like you had a totally fab time and thanks for the timely reminder on building and nurturing relationships x

    Sounds like you had a great weekend! I love the tiny appartement you stayed in.
    I just finished “The Big Tiny” and enjoyed it a lot. Made me laugh and made me cry. Read it if you haven’t yet!
    I stayed the weekend in a tiny appartement (about 350 squarefeet), too, and loved it. Currently I live in a 800 squarefeet appartement and I am moving to a 1000 squarefeet appartement. I don’t like the fact that we live in an even bigger space soon, but there wasn’t much choice as we had to find something new very quickly and my husband doesn’t want to downsize… But that doesn’t stop me from questioning my stuff and decluttering a lot! Your blog and books like “The Big Tiny” (and of course “You can buy Happiness”) helped me a lot with that process!

    Beautiful pictures! You are really talented. I am looking forward to listen to your broadcast when I have a few minutes. Thanks again.

    Portland seems such a green and pretty city.
    Very nice pictures. 🙂
    What a cute apartment/house you stayed in.

  • Marla May 6, 2014, 11:01 am

    Yes, you are inspirational… I am looking forward to reading The Big TIny….and I love welcoming my day with your photos….they have helped me remember to LOOK! Thanks for all of your inspirational energy.

  • Sylvie May 6, 2014, 11:42 am

    Thanks Tammy, it was a joy to listen to you and to look at your pictures. They give a sense of lightness, cosy and sweet… I love your blog and your work 🙂

    I couldn’t listen to the audio (incapability at my end, not yours), but the pictures as always have such a soothing quality. And the sentiment of prioritizing people and experiences…YES YES!! Totally agree and am glad to say that I live it too. We don’t have the fanciest furniture, clothes or home, but we are so rich for our priorities – time with loved ones and travel, food and life experiences.

    The podcast was very timely as I continue to declutter!! I hope to have an amazing Mother’s Day this Sunday spending time walking along Lake Ontario!! And I have asked my girls to declutter their rooms as a Mother’s Day present. The place you stayed at is adorable.. I am glad that you showed it to me as the pictures are inspirational! Have a wonderful day!!

  • Kristine May 6, 2014, 6:42 pm

    I am truly enjoying your blog & your wonderful pics … So glad you enjoyed your get-away …

    Great photos! I really hope to meet Dee someday. She is such a great inspiration. Everyday that goes by, I’m a little closer to reaching my dream of moving to Portland. 🙂 Just the coffee alone makes it worth it. hahaha We actually starting roasting our own coffee since our trip to Portland. The trip really inspired us to have fresh coffee daily instead of store bought. What a difference in taste!

  • Katie May 7, 2014, 2:24 pm

    Lovely audio and photos Tammy! Can’t wait to read the Big Tiny – GO DEE! The little house you stayed in in Portland looks so cool. And I love the photo of all the wooden doors, I’ve spent ages gazing at them, imagining where they might lead to! And the photo of Logan with the bear is so sweet!

    Snail mail heading your way 🙂
