One offbeat couple (and their cat) strive to live life on their own terms, through the practice of everyday minimalism and a firm commitment to pursuing their dreams – no matter how crazy those dreams might be.
We are The Minimalists Next Door!
Melody is the writer, the explorer, the planner, the fixer of all things broken, and the occasional worrier.
She enjoys reading a good book, exploring new places, searching for letterboxes, sipping a steaming cup of dark roast coffee, watching TV dramas, snorkeling and kayaking the clear blue seas, contemplating life, and writing all about it.
Angie is the photographer, the adventurer, the dreamer, the voracious reader, and the always calm voice of reason.
She can most often be found trying a new recipe, reading a good travel memoir, standing atop a paddleboard, creating art, watching old movies, charting new adventures, and capturing it all in stunning photos.
And then there’s the cat…
Caesar is a rather large 14-year old Tuxedo cat who loves to talk – especially early in the morning.
Since then, we’ve traveled to 7 countries and 19 US states (including Hawaii), explored Florida coast to coast, spent an entire summer volunteering for sea turtle patrol on Venice Beach, and road-tripped in a RV for 3 months; among lots of other adventures.
