Welcome! I am a freelance writer and blogger who writes the good news of downsizing, living an intentional life, and reducing stress.

I write features and human interest stories for newspapers, magazines, and online publications.

In 2015, I launched my blog Unwanting, tracing the journey I’ve gone through with my family when we downsized to our little house, the Cozy Cottage. Living in our 1 bathroom, 2 bedroom house is sometimes a challenge, but our small house has afforded us a much bigger life. Our family has become closer, we have more time and money to play, and we sleep well at night knowing we’ve eliminated the financial strain we used to live under in a bigger house. Come on in, read the blog, sign up for my newsletter, The Cozy Cottage Chronicles, like Unwanting on Facebook, or send me a message. I love to hear from others chasing after a simpler life!

Success! You're on the list.
