My husband, Brendan, and I started dating at sixteen, fell hard and got married. We ventured into a year-long honeymoon traveling the world. On our return from our travels, we bought a sailboat in Long Beach, CA and called it home for a year and a half. It was during this time that we realized how peaceful it was to live minimally and how a small space could open the outdoors! Our support for the tinyhouse movement had begun and we wanted others to experience this! Traveling has been my company’s biggest influence (ventureyours.com) We create unique vacation rentals for travelers to experience, in addition to collaborating with home owners who would like us to manage their vacation rentals.
Wanting others to experience tiny home living, I began to think of a tiny house and what that would look like… Growing up, my family was the type who would travel on a moments notice; I later found out my grandpa lived most of his younger life as a Gypsy – moving from place to place. And although that wasn’t easy on him, the glorified version and daydreaming of travel in a Gypsy Wagon began. I would say that The Gypsy Wagon was inspired by the simplicity of exploring freely while loving… the heart experiencing the unfamiliar yet familiar while finding peace. It’s quite beautiful how travel and wandering can bring you into the present moment 😉
