It’s winter in BC. We rarely ever get winter, but I mean this week, it’s really winter. That means hibernation and spending a little too much time in front of our screens. Scrolling around Instagram and seeing some beautiful photos? And all you’ve got are some selfies in front of the fireplace?
February is here and love and kindness are in all around us – along with a giant arctic outflow and polar vortex. So, our hearts are warm, but let’s be honest, it is so cold outside.
Netflix has come out with some pretty great documentaries and reality shows lately that have us glued to our couches (I’m looking at you, Fyre), but there is one in particular that has us talking. Going beyond being a feel-good show, it has influenced real change to our lifestyles and birthed countless memes because this is the internet, where a direct correlation exists between a show’s popularity and the number of memes created in its honor.

But what is a PPAH?
I used to call myself the pre-parent type of a-hole (bonus points if you count how many times I use that phrase in this piece) aka the PPAH (pre-parent-a**-hole). Let’s paint a picture of who this person was, seven years ago. I had an opinion on everything parenting. Vaccines? Circumcision? Organic foods? Yep. But it wasn’t these things that led me to self diagnose myself as an PPAH..it was the fact that I did the following that really pushed me over the edge…
They make shows about them, everyone talks about how cute they are, but “I could never actually live in that.” They’re kind of trendy, kind of confusing, kind of cute, and totally captivating. They are tiny homes, and in many places in the US and Canada, they’re becoming an attractive alternative to people who don’t want to stomach exorbitant real estate prices.
