MOVING INTO OUR COTTAGE

Come along as we move into our 1920's cottage in New York!!!
Settling into our tiny home has been a lot more work than we anticipated but we are SO incredibly thankful to have a home to call our own after being homeless for almost a year! 

When we put in our 30 days notice at the house share we were living in, we had no where to go and could never have dreamed that we'd actually get our own tiny home! Seriously, DREAMS DO COME TRUE! We have talked about wanting a cottage for a long time and we're so in love with "Buxton Cottage", as we have named it!

As lovely as it's been having a place to call our own, we didn't realize how much responsibility and possessions we would acquire. For 4 years we have lived very small and minimal as we have moved from California to Sweden, back to California, and then traveled America for a year.
We spent almost every weekend of February in search of furniture on Craigslist, estate sales, and thrift stores...only at the end of the month did we find a bedroom set, only to realize it was a little too big for our tiny home.
So the search continues, but we're trying to enjoy the process even if it's something entirely different than we are used to. We will always value adventures and memories over material possessions, but we are thrilled with the opportunity to create our own little vintage woodland fairytale world here in the cottage.
We're excited for spring and to keep bringing you along on the adventures and hope to give a tour once we've painted and decorated! As always, thanks for coming along, especially to those who have been through all the ups & downs of our pursuit of finding where we belong in this beautiful world!
