We're Ben and Kelly Zugay, and we're on a mission to live small and give big!

Since 2015, we've been on a renovating and decorating our well-loved 800 square foot condo — our home on Harvest!

When we're not biking, hiking, kayaking, and enjoying beautiful western Wisconsin, Ben is a a university-level entrepreneurship educator and I'm a small business owner.

It was my first time in Philadelphia — Ben’s second — and I’m so glad we went one day early so we could explore and go sightseeing.

I was so, so excited to begin my 6-week sabbatical from With Grace and Gold with a trip to Walt Disney World with the Zugays! We spent 10 days in Florida, going to all of the Disney Parks, swimming and snacking at the pool, and spending time together as a family. I have to preface […]
