Bareneckers Is Now - Tiny Shiny Home

Tiny Shiny Home

Back in 2015 when we were getting ready to ditch the suburbs, we knew we wanted to blog about our journey. We had read countless other blogs that gave us inspiration, encouragement, and knowledge of how life on the road could work. We wanted to share every aspect of our transition with you! The wanderlust musings, the downsizing, the search and purchase of our first trailer, why we sold that trailer and decided to downsize again and renovate a vintage Airstream. You’ve come along with us on this crazy ride and we are so thankful that you’ve taken time out of your day to read about all our shenanigans.

We chose a name for our blog that we thought was fun. We’ve always been called Necker’s cause Longnecker is just so…LONG! We wanted a name that would let you know we’ll be baring our souls and be completely honest with you. We thought it was clever but 2.5 years later…people are still confused about the name Bareneckers. 

'Is that your last name?' 

'Does this mean you’ll be posting nudes on my feed?'

'I don’t get it.'


So, in order to simplify...again...we will henceforth and forever more be called Tiny Shiny Home. 

We have some big things planned for the next year and we are so excited to bring you along for the ride. Thank you to all those who chose to send us messages, notes of encouragement, and for your comments on our posts. I am always so excited when people leave comments because I was convinced that the only people who would read our blog is our parents. :)

So, friends...Tiny Shiny Home is here to stay and we have some pretty fun things planned for the next year. Thank you for sticking with us and being honest with us! But seriously, why didn’t you tell us our name didn’t make sense before now?? 

Live and learn, right?
