Hi there! I’m Tammy Strobel. Thanks for visiting my digital home! Here’s a little bit about me:

1. I live in Yreka, California with my sweet husband and two cats—Christie and Elaina.

2. I started my blog in 2007 to document our downsizing adventures.

3. Since 2010, I’ve been a self-employed writer, photographer, and teacher.

4. In 2010, Stephanie Rosenbloom wrote about my story in The New York Times, and the article resulted in a book deal.

5. I lived in a tiny house on wheels for 4-years.

6. I’m obsessed with morning views, reading, everyday adventures, CrossFit, and simplicity.

7. I’m working on this list: 40 Things To Do Before I Turn 40.

If you enjoy my essays, photos, and curated happy links, consider supporting my work on Patreon. As a bonus, you get fun goodies as a reward!


Each week, I share stories and lessons about going small, thinking big, and being happy. If you’d like to receive emails from me, please subscribe.

Thank you!

My rule of thumb: If I wouldn’t recommend it to my best friend, I don’t recommend it to my readers.
