We had one of those wonderfully rare Sunday afternoons last weekend, where the sky was overcast (a rarity during the blazing Arizona summers), and brought out the laziness in all of us. The kids napped for hours, and we were able to have a quiet few hours watching documentaries on Netflix. After we finished Forks over Knives (which I loved, and will be writing about soon), I scrolled around for a new title while Ryan went to visit a family member in the hospital.
My next choice- TINY: A Story About Living Small:
You guys, this was a total game changer for me. Not only was it filled with some of the sexiest, most jaw-dropping photos of my hometown of Boulder, Colorado, but the entire concept just blew my mind. Don’t get me wrong- we don’t plan on breaking the multi-year lease we just signed 3 months ago, dropping a zero from the square footage we currently reside in, and moving into a little home on wheels with 2 toddlers (though, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t fantasize about it a few times a day since watching the documentary).
Rather, thinking through some of the themes discussed in the film has really given a boost of energy to the clutter busting and general rightsizing I’ve been doing since we settled down her in Phoenix. In addition to making me incredibly homesick (it’s certainly interesting to watch someone contemplate what their sense of ‘home’ looks like while using your former home as a backdrop), watching TINY has really helped me reset my priorities and look at all my past and potential purchases through a new lens.
Have you watched TINY, or read anything about the tiny house movement? I would love to hear your thoughts!
