We are Americans born and raised in the midwest. We've been a couple since October, 1978 and were officially married in July, 2015. To borrow from Sir Paul McCartney, it's been a long and winding road. Along the way we've been small business owners (individually and together), bought houses and condos in cities, towns and rural areas. Buried parents, siblings and a few cats. We've up-sized and down-sized and are now embarking on what we call The Great Big Tiny Life. That means less buying and tending to stuff and more going and doing of stuff and not spending a pile of dough in the process. Kinda like Millenials, only older and maybe just a wee bit wiser.
