Let’s see. Well, we are a family of four living in the burbs outside of beautiful Vancouver, B.C. We have been blessed with good health, great friends, and a pretty positive outlook on life. Like everyone, we have been impacted by the changing economy – luckily, not as negatively as most. We have been thinking about reducing our consumption for a long, long time and well, the timing just seemed right.
The Year of Austere is our family’s journey from a place of pretty standard North American consumerism to a newfound appreciation for people and experiences. This is our hope. We expect to have a bit of a bumpy journey. Hell, that’s where all the funniest stories will come from. Join us!
p.s. The photo’s old. Chloe’s now 15 and Nicholas is 10. Glenn and I look exactly the same, however, with not a single additional grey hair…..
