I cannot tell you how honored I am that Tannenboing #10 is going to be a part of Sabrina and Drew’s new, down-sized home. Sabrina and Drew have chosen to live a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle, and to this end, they have moved from a 2,800 sq. ft home, to a 750 sq. ft. condominium with their two young boys!
Sabrina travels around the world as a journalist and says “I have seen how most people in this world are living content with less space and stuff. Bigger and more doesn’t mean happier. We don’t have to do as much “managing” of a house. We are saving money for our future, which hopefully will mean another year or two abroad. And hopefully we are leaving a smaller carbon footprint on this world of ours.”
Their plan is to hang the Tannenboing all year and after the holidays, they will decorate the aluminum spiral with the boy’s artwork. I’m so happy to hear this as I’ve always felt that the Tannenboing isn’t just for Christmas. The shape is very sculptural and is really, the essence of a tree. I think it will look very clean and modern in their home.
I am so inspired by Sabrina and Drew’s very dramatic and very generous life change. I’m honored that they are dedicating some of their small space to a Tannenboing. I’m also glad that, if they need the space, they’ll be able to flat-pack the Tannenboing away under a bed.
Sabrina said “going smaller has been so much better for us in so many ways. The boys are learning to play with less, which has fueled their creativity.” I hope that creativity covers the tannenboing from top to bottom this year.
Thanks Sabrina and Drew for living your lives so selflessly.
