a story about living small

The Land: Hartsel, Colorado.

Last weekend, we headed up to the land for the first time this spring, to do some filming and to mark out a driveway.

It’s been a rainy few weeks in Colorado. It was drizzling in Boulder as we left, but the clouds broke as we drove up into the mountains. We stopped at the super market in Fairplay and bought some egg salad and a loaf of bread to make sandwiches. Up at the land, we filmed at interview and blocked out a vague idea of where the driveway should come in. It got windy around 4pm and massive dark clouds began to roll in. We packed up. By the time we stopped in Fairplay for coffee on our way home, it was snowing.

    I’m trying to find out if Dr. Elizabeth Smith is “Betty Daffer” from Las Vegas. If so, I’d love to get in touch with her. She’s a great friend of mine and I lost track of her when I remarried and moved. Please let me know. Thanks.

    • Hi Denise,

      Dr. Elizabeth Smith is indeed Betty Daffer and also Christopher’s mom. We forwarded on this comment to her. And we are curious to know how you connected the two… Thanks for reaching out, Denise!

      Cheers, TINY Production Team
