Hi! I’m Rachael. An ardent history lover, traveler, and recent minimalist.
My husband Jeff and I got married in the summer of 2010 with zero stamps in our passports. We were a typical newlywed couple with a mortgage in the suburbs and two cars.
Seven years and two precious daughters later, we have given up the mortgage and one of the cars and are enjoying apartment living in the city and traveling as a family as often as possible.
We’ve downsized our possessions over 75% and our living space 60% while visiting 23 countries and 32 states.
I love finding ways to simplify our family life and make travel with kids more fun and accessible. My goal in these pages is to catalogue our journey of minimalism and family travel and provide inspiration and practical advice for others looking to do the same.
Welcome. I’m glad you’re here!
