Pumpkin Sage and Sausage Baked Gnocchi -

The Purge has begun. No, no this isn’t the box office Ethan Hawke movie bomb… The Purge of the last five years of one-bedroom apartment life has begun. It’s not until you start undoing the last however-many-years-you’ve-lived-in-one-place of stuff that you realize how much utter crap you have, like a $3 flower vase that hasn’t actually held flower in probably just as many years. I’m all for keeping the useful, but getting rid of the fluff. This is coming from the girl that wants a tiny house, so maybe that says something.

Or, it says that I severely take after my own mother who dispenses with the useless like it’s no tomorrow. My mom and bonus dad are champion “tiny house livers”, not because they live in a tiny house per se… they live in small quarters but it’s not a house. It’s a small travel trailer that they have lived in while building their dream house.  Over the last years they have mastered the living situation and I’m taking note. We aren’t moving into a tiny house either – much to my dismay – but never the less, it’s time to get rid of the junk.
