    Cozy isn't only for seniors

    Like the author herself, Karen O'Connor's book, The Upside of Downsizing, is a wonderful encouragement in a petite package. I'm a few years from an empty nest myself, but I found much in this little book to ponder and to put into practice now-especially the positive, practical, joyful, giving attitude that shines from every page. If you're looking for a more fulfilling life-downsized or not-this book is a great place to start.
