Financial Independence Update- April 2023

April was a pretty laid back month. Besides a quick trip to Kansas City for a few days for the annual AOTA (Occupational Therapy) Conference, we were at home for the rest of the month.

Around the World in 2022

2022 was a whirlwind of travel for us! We spent only eight weeks at home all year, not consecutively.

Financial Independence Update- November 2022

We spent all of November traveling on our trip around the world. Although our most expensive long international trip, this one has been my favorite.

Financial Independence Update- October 2022

October was another really busy month for us. In terms of both traveling and business, 2022 has been our most busy year by far.
