About Us

Hello, my name is Theresa and I have a hard time fitting in. Most photos that exist of me, such as the one pictured above, are ones where I am mid-sentence telling one of my children not to do something. I'm awkward, I am forever stuck in wanderlust, and I feel uncomfortable at get-togethers with more than 3 people. 

I chose to reject the suburban life that many people around me told me I'd inevitably have to succumb to once I had kids and am raising my family in a bustling city. We ride the subway, we buy tacos from food trucks, we're crazy. I have designed my life and that of my family to be efficient and flow easily and have whipped it all up on a website for your enjoyment. If you're searching for happiness, whatever that may look like for you, then Hello, Minimalist Family is for you.

I strive for Hello, Minimalist Family to be a resource for anything from "what is the best roll up floor mat for my playroom with limited space?" to "how do i get out of my 3rd story apartment with 2 kids and onto the subway without dropping something or someone?' to even "how can I weigh the pros and cons of following my seemingly outlandish dreams?" We exist because we want to help you find happiness. And not just, like, in a theoretical and boring way. Let's make it happen.

I've landed many leaps, and I want to show you how to make yours, too.
