This post has been in the works for quite some time. I'm a "small living" enthusiast. I lived in a 785 square foot condo for 8 years. What am I doing in this big house?
Back when we were looking for homes, I was drawn towards the smaller ones. I remember saying that a few of them "felt appropriate in size." They were bigger than the condo, but not too much bigger. They'd allow us to have people over more comfortably than before, but weren't set up for hordes of visitors. Marc was drawn to larger homes and larger plots of land. In an ideal world, he'll have vast stretches of land. The compromise was something in the middle. So we nixed a few of the really large homes and therefore didn't bump up against the top of our budget.
Where does that leave the blog? Several people have flippantly said "what are you going to name the blog" after seeing our house. I don't think changing the name is so easily done. This blog has been around for five years and in blog years, that's a pretty long time. When the blog veered into wedding stuff, it was still right here at smallchichome.com. I don't think I want to abandon it.
I'm still a lover of small spaces, even if my new home isn't small. While I'll still blog about projects here, I'll also include small living topics. I have been thinking of changing the name on the blog header, but the URL isn't going anywhere.
I hope you'll stay with me!
