On our return to Canada, there seemed to be a greater urgency around revenue generation. We hit the ground running intent on growing our business to help ease the pressures around paying a large mortgage and ourselves. We gave it the good ole college try but finally reached a point when we asked the question of ourselves about downsizing. It became very clear very quickly, that if we wanted to have the quality of life that we desired, freer of constant concerns around money, we had to reduce our physical footprint and reduce or eliminate our debt load.
A few words of gratitude. We couldn't have made it through this year without a lot of help. To the families who let us use their homes and beds; to Corinne and Chris for watching Coco and Shay; to Brian and Dale for watching Heather's house plants; to Josh and Ashlee for buying our Elma Street home and allowing us to finish where we started up in the loft; to our respective families for cheering us on and supporting us from a distance; to my art and Ideal Protein clients for their infinite patience and understanding; and to the SEED Homes teams for walking with us hand-in-hand through this great adventure and getting us home for Christmas.
