Attitude of Gratitude

I am grateful for a small home.  Some of the benefits of our little apartment:

  • it is easier and quicker to clean
  • we purchase and consume less stuff
  • we frequently clean out and purge the stuff we do have
  • we are always together as a family
  • I can keep close tabs on my little ones (usually :))
  • I use my awesome tetris skills when storing stuff in closets and cupboards
  • it encourages us to get out of the house and experience new, exciting things
I love the random photos my kids take.  They are like little prizes in a cereal box.


  1. I live in a small cape cod and often scream about the lack of space and storage. Especially with 5 of us here soon 6. Thanks for helping me appreciate the good points about close quarters.

  2. It is often hard to focus on the good when we are bursting at the seams and society keeps telling us we need more stuff to be happy. But I know when I focus on my family rather than our stuff I feel so much better!

  3. good reminder. amen to small spaces! i frequently think "what would i do if i had a whole house to keep clean?" i'll stick with 800 square feet for now.
