Tiny Living and Hurricane Prep

When we first started contemplating tiny living, we knew we wanted to live on the coast, beside the ocean. Sounds like Heaven, am I right?! It is, until a Hurricane is threatening your little coastal town. Last week, there were some rumblings about a hurricane maybe hitting the NC coast, but remaining positive, I kept… Continue reading Tiny Living and Hurricane Prep

NC Outer Banks- First Half

We have had our share of the outer banks as kids, and here and there as adults, but neither of us had actually, intentionally, driven and visited the entire outer banks. Now that we live on the NC Coast, we are so close to the ferry to Ocracoke, that our goal has now become more… Continue reading NC Outer Banks- First Half

My Ride or Die, Nooch (Nutritional Yeast)

I often find myself singing at night, when I am preparing Betty White's dinner. I make up little names for her, and shout them to a melody, "Betty White-stone Creamery, your dinner is ready for you, your Majesty, I hope you don't mind the regular cuisine that I- have- pre-paaaaarrrred!" She stares at me with… Continue reading My Ride or Die, Nooch (Nutritional Yeast)

Embracing a New Norm- Living Free

A year ago, Gerry and I would have been envious when others would say, "Happy Friday!" or use #tgif since our weekends running our business were consumed with managing staff, customers, hectic weekend hours, and wishing we were able to get away for a couple of days, like everyone else. Our norm for living was… Continue reading Embracing a New Norm- Living Free
