Even though it’s been three months since my last report and I’ve been planning to do these quarterly, I was seriously tempted not to post an update this time around. You see, it feels like we’ve made almost no progress over the last quarter, at least when you compare it to the quarter just before …

These are the 101 in 1001 Goals I’m Changing {+ Why}

Welp, it’s happened again, just like last time—I’ve found that so much has changed in the last 8 months since making my second 101 in 1001 list that many of the goals are no longer relevant, or at least no longer top of mind. (I mean, I didn’t even CONSIDER that starting a flower farm …

I Can Actually Clean My House Again! {June 2021 Goals}

Since March 1st, I have literally been going pretty much nonstop on flower farming stuff with every single spare second I had.

Our Plan to Pay Off the Mortgage Early

In case you missed the announcement, I posted earlier this month that my husband and I are now officially planning on retiring by 50. Or, more accurately, we’re planning on reaching a level of financial independence by 50 that would allow us to only work part-time if we so choose, and at doing whatever we …
