LoveThis week I had a bit of jury duty, a case of “what am I doing with my life” (still recovering), and I took a few days off for the 4th of July.

If you’ve been waiting with anticipation for my next article, wait no longer!

Money, Love, and Marriage

Last month I celebrated 5 years of marriage to my lovely wife! Wow, time flies! We’ve learned a lot about money, love, and marriage. Some I’ve previously shared and other lessons I’ll sprinkle along the journey.

We’ve completed 60+ budgets, become debt free, started saving for retirement, finished grad school without student loans, paid for a birth, gone through several career changes, and….whew! I’ll stop here.

I can’t wonder what other challenges and obstacles we’ll overcome together. I am blessed to be married to the love of my life.

    Brent, I hate those “what am I doing with my life” moments. Luckily, they pass and then I’m back on track :). It makes things interesting.
