After a year of self-reflection after a shift in focus on my career as a high school teacher, I’ve taken the time to examine a lot of things–mine and my husband’s finances included. Gone are the days of saying “I don’t have time to think about this!”

With over 600k in student loan and mortgage debt, we are working to pay it off and enjoy life along the way in our home of Colorado. The first step is choosing knowledge over ignorance, which is where this blog comes in. This blog is a place to share and learn, particularly about our path to financial independence. Thank you for stopping by!
