Why We Live Small

I have been contemplating a YouTube channel for some time now. When Kate asked me to participate in the Small Family Homes Blog Community I jumped at the chance to participate because it gave me the perfect opportunity to start that channel! Scroll down to see a list of all the other blogs that are involved in the community. Click over and give them a read, I know you'll love them!
