Building Smalltopia: We've Got a Roof!


Last night, we were standing in the kitchen and I broke my evening no-email rule because I had a feeling I might find something good in my inbox. And I was right. I let out a squeal of joy and Logan remarked, "Dude, you sound like a chipmunk. Did Katy send us another photo of the house?"

I smiled and yelled, "YES!"

Logan smirked and replied, "Well don't just stand there, let me see the pictures."

I showed Logan the latest photos and he was in total awe, just like me. We both laughed again when we noticed the title of Katy's email. She said, "Look who's got a roof!"

Every time I see photos of our little house I want to jump up and down with joy. I know. I sound like a total cheese-ball, but I'm super excited about moving into the house and I'm grateful that we are making this dream a reality. And I'm thankful we have a roof, even though it's tiny.

Living simply has infused my life with a sense of gratitude that wasn't present before. It's funny how getting small can result in very big life changes.
