I realized that I haven’t really introduced myself since taking over smidge of delish. Short of a brief post stating that smidge is under new management, you really don’t know who we are.
Allow us to introduce ourselves. My name is Tim and I am married to the lovely Amy. We are just an average couple that happens to love all things culinary. While we love cooking, neither of us does it professionally. I actually work in the oil and gas industry and am currently extremely thankful to have a job. The lovely Amy is an artist and my muse. She is the chief cook and bottle washer over at her blog stampinwithaheart.com.
We currently live just north of New Orleans Louisiana in a cozy little bedroom community. We live with 5 cats and 3 dogs who we occasionally may mention in our posts. While we do love it here, we are starting to realize that there is more to life than this.
We have been thinking about simplifying our lives. We have decided that I am away from home too much and we are too far away from our grandchildren. We have been toying with the idea of building a tiny house and dragging it up to North Carolina to be closer to them.
Here is the one we think we are going to build. Unless we can find a plan we like on a gooseneck trailer. It gives us enough space to be able to live happily near our grandchildren, and not be burdened with the usual house bills. Our current thinking is to rent our current house out once we build the tiny house. That will give us time to decide if we want to move there permanently. If we do, we will sell our house in Louisiana and buy a house in North Carolina.
I plan on periodically posting updates on our progress. So stay tuned.
