Tiny Baby, Tiny House– How I Stayed “Myself” After Baby

Stella’s napping which means it’s blog writing time! She is two days shy of her first birthday and all of us have changed so much over the last year. She is walking, babbling, giggling, and understanding– a super joy to be around. I have managed […]

Farm Updates!

Farm Updates!

Good morning! Since the farm is going down this year (even if my half of the garden IS still under water…) I will be running a wordpress page specifically with farm updates, C.S.A. and market information, and posts about whatever amazing vegetable or recipe strikes […]

Heart of Gold Farm is Off the Ground!

Heart of Gold Farm is Off the Ground!

And just like that, I am a farmer again! I put the word out a few months back to see if anyone knew anyone who wanted their unused pasture or lot to be the future site of Heart of Gold Farms, and at the beginning […]

Tiny Human, Tiny House– Raising a Baby in Our Tiny House.

Tiny Human, Tiny House– Raising a Baby in Our Tiny House.

It’s 5:42am and my nose is being grabbed by impatient little fingers. I’d say this blasted me awake, but the baby babble has been in business for fifteen minutes and only now has quieted because Adventure Babe’s mouth is presently full of hair. My hair. […]

…Or, Winter is Upon Us! Since moving back from the great Midwest three years ago, I’ve found that winters in the PNW are incredibly hard for me. The nights are long and the days are grey and even though the temperature is WAY more mild […]

Happy Anniversary To Us! Our Lovely, Rustic, Zero Waste Mt. Rainier Wedding

Family Life in the Tiny House

Family Life in the Tiny House

So to better get these blogs out in a timely fashion, I made a little document awhile back where I’ve been throwing post ideas for times like tonight when the stars align and the babe goes to sleep at a reasonable time and I’m actually […]

“Look Ma, No Hands!”: Babywearing and Strolling on the Farm and in the Tiny House.

“Look Ma, No Hands!”: Babywearing and Strolling on the Farm and in the Tiny House.

I’m in bumper crop go-time mode here in Chez Tiny House and even though the Little Bean is a few months from solid food, we’re putting up all sorts of nomalicious seasonal eats for her when the Big Day comes. The apple and pear trees […]

Big People, Tiny Waist

Big People, Tiny Waist

In addition to the new budget regime (still in the works… mama’s gotta plan) I’m also in the waning days of new-bod adjustments. Being tall and from a long line of ladies apparently born to birth, my body didn’t change too drastically after growing and […]

The Waning Days of My American Maternity Leave

The Waning Days of My American Maternity Leave

The days of sweet maternity leave freedom are nearing their end and we at chez Tiny House are now faced with the not-so-pleasant conundrum of trying to figure out what we’ll be doing with the babe on a daily basis come mid-August. Ideally the plan […]
