I am a mother, wife and writer living in Vancouver, Canada. I like running, red lentil soup, Crossfit, chocolate peppermint bark and going to the movies.

In the September of 2010 my husband and I decided to become Minimalists. What does this mean? We want to live a life free of clutter – both physical and mental. We want to own fewer things and do more.

So far that means getting rid of half of our possessions including our car. It feels really good. You should try it.
