A few years ago, Julie and I were like most Americans: running our butts off between work, home and kids events. We were working our butts off, running around like chickens with our head’s cut off.
We were trying to maintain a lifestyle we couldn’t possibly afford while projecting “happiness and prosperity.” We really didn’t have a direction, purpose or plan. It was an endless “do loop” of wake up, go to work, go to kids’ thing, eat dinner, go to bed….wash, rinse and repeat.
Enter a few life changing events, and we decided to jump off the hamster wheel of our “keeping up with the Joneses” lifestyle. We decided to make some big changes and chart a new path for our lives.
We are so thankful we got off the hamster wheel. What we have discovered (through a lot of trials and even more errors) is that more is not always better and that life is so much more meaningful with less. We have a plan and are building a life that we don’t need a vacation from.
Julie and I are here to help you find that same joy and contentment in your life. Let us help you find your Small Scale Life and chart a new path.
Tom and Julie
What can I tell you about me? Well, I’m a born and bred Minnesota girl who loves a good hotdish and drinks pop instead of soda. (Actually, I’m now a recovering Diet Coke addict!) I love all things flowers but primarily leave the growing of them to my talented hubby. I am a florist by trade and love creating beautiful things not just with flowers but with anything I can get my hands on. Oh yeah… I’m also a reformed shop-a-holic who still loves shopping but is now passionate about thrifting and finding treasures… but not too many treasures to clutter up our minimal lifestyle! 🙂
