Living Large in A Small House Podcast

Living Large in A Small House Podcast

I'm Lynn the creator of the blog "Living Large in A Small House". I'm passionate about decorating, cooking, entertaining, organizing, and gardening. I live in a 1,300 sq., ft., home with my husband who I call "Handy" on my blog. I'm Mom to three grown kids, Kenny who lives in LA, Annie who lives with her husband Tommy in Dallas, and Emma who lives in Chicago. We also have a 15-year-old Shih Tzu named Molly and 5 beautiful hens who provide us with organic, fresh eggs daily. I'm pretty transparent about my life and what goes on at this small house!
