Party Central

Posted by Rebecca

Growing up, my parents were very social.  We would throw a dinner party at our house every Saturday night.  Usually just a small one, in the winter inside, in the summer outside.  I loved it.  I was an only child until I was 15, so I loved the house being filled with friends and family.

Things haven’t changed.  I love a house full of people.  I love socializing and throwing parties.  And this weekend was no exception.  Tanille and I threw an anniversary party for our friend, Kara and her husband, Ryan.  10 years – certainly reason to celebrate.

I threw caution to the wind and planned the shin-dig to take place mostly outside.  And for the most part, the weather cooperated.  We had a little rain in the afternoon and a little in the evening.  And then it cleared up and was a beautiful night. 

It’s amazing how many friends you can cram into a small space.  This party was a little roomier with the outside available.  We had 27 guests in total throughout the evening.  But had it kept on raining, I knew that we could make it work inside, because on a freezing March evening this year, I had an indoor beach party with 25 guests.  And it worked.  If you are willing to get creative with a 450 square foot space, you can make it happen.

That was a big necessity for me when picking out a trailer to renovate – it had to have potential to open up the space and squeeze in a lot of friends. 

There’s a saying that goes like this:  A house is made of brick and stone, but only love can make it a home.  Well, my trailer is made of aluminium and wood, but family and friends are what make it real good….  (I’m, um, still working on my saying….  But you get the idea :))

It’s always a good idea to end the night with a fire.

Somehow I ended up in a single-wide trailer, in Reno, Nevada. And somehow I love it. Here is where I tell my story about my trailer, and my passion for small space living, photography, travelling, and running.
