I came across the most beautiful quote about choosing to live small on CUP OF JO last week. I had to share as I couldn’t agree more. And most impressively they live with 3 kids in a 2 bedroom apartment. Something to strive for?? ;)
On living in a smaller space: In the summer, it bothers me less because we spend a lot of time outside or at the park. In the winter, though, it can feel small. But I remind myself that as much as we fantasize about having a laundry room or a garage or a real dishwasher, we’re choosing to forsake those things right now for the experience of living in New York City. If I feel jealous of what someone else has, I’ll remind myself ‘We went to Central Park yesterday,’ and for now, those good things outweigh the bad. While a small space obviously has its drawbacks, it also creates an environment that necessitates cooperation, creativity and problem-solving. I like the challenge of constantly experimenting and tinkering to optimize what we have. And I love the forced closeness—most of the time!
