Tiny House Meet Skoolie

I have been writing a little heavy lately and I am working on a few posts that heavy and/or close to my heart…some might be considered hot button things. I want to take my time with these pieces, so today I am going to update...

Escape to Niagara, The Voyage Home

Once again we went with Dunkin’ Donuts. This was more an issue of speed than desired breakfast. Not sure what traffic will be like and we have a date with a Tiny House. Check out from the Stay Inn and Suites was quick and easy....

We have been exploring trading in both of our cars and reducing ourselves to a one vehicle family. I have a company vehicle that I use Monday through Friday. It’s allowed to be used by my husband and can be utilized for limited personal use,...
