Now and then…

Our tiny house on wheels

The mother ship has landed. Our new tiny house has been planted in Henry County, Kentucky. We have named it Serenity after my favorite TV series Firefly & follow up movie Serenity. Its the theme song to both that made me suggest her name. You can burn the land, you can boil the see, but you can’t take the sky from me. That is essentially what Citizen’s Union Bank did to us.
