Well here were are, over 30% of the way through 2020 and I’m still trying to summarize 2019. I was an absolute blur of a year full of changes and confusions; maybe I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that happened.
No surprises here…our little toddler’s lifestyle (can you believe Campbell is TWO now?!) is demanding a few changes around our place. When we decided to upgrade from our previous one bedroom apartment I wondered how well and for how long our two bedroom, two bathroom space would work for us. I’m happy to report that we … More Hong Kong Apartment: Recent Changes

I discovered a great blog written by another small-space-dwelling-Alison; 600SQFTANDABABY captures her life in Vancouver living … More Do You Need to Be Creative to Live Small?

A while back I shared our little slice of Canada that we created in 440 square feet (if you missed it, read up: here). Knowing we were expecting a baby we needed somewhere with a bit more space and began … More Our New *Larger Hong Kong Apartment
The finishing touches are FINALLY in place and we’re feeling completely settled in our Hong Kong home! A few things took a bit longer than we anticipated – the last little things always seem to drag on forever – but we’re finally organized and not coming home to a list of to-do’s. Hooray! My strategy … More Hong Kong Apartment: Our Canadiana Haven
