A Downsized Life shares our journey as we look to live a simpler life, away from the everyday stresses of living in a big city, and all that entails.
Join us as we share lessons learned, successes earned, and everything in-between. You'll hear from myself and my wife Jaclyn, as we take the plunge and move three hours north of our old home, friends, and more, and how we adapt (or don't).
You'll also hear from our two young kids occasionally, and what the move and new life means to them - the ups, the downs, the somewhere in the middle.
While we may not have all the answers, we promise we'll give our honest feedback and thoughts about making this move yourself, and hopefully help you along the way.

Welcome to A Downsized Life, where we explore the joys and challenges of moving from a big city to a small village to lead a quieter, simpler life.
