How My Family Lives Debt Free on One Income
We can all agree - having more money would make our lives easier. Or would it? In some ways, yes. Making a bigger income does allow us to loosen the purse strings a little. But in many ways, the amount on our paychecks only goes so far to help us build our savings account and pay the bills. Why?
Because financial stability all comes down to how you spend it.
Four lessons I've Learned Over the Last Four Years of Marriage
Marriage is the best decision I ever made. Every morning I wake up next to my husband and see someone who is willing to care for me, comfort me, and encourage me no matter what comes my way that day. We've become an inseparable team over the last four years, but it hasn't been without a lot of work and many lessons learned along the way.
I want to share with you four lessons I've learned...one for each year Brighton and I have been married. I know I have so much more to learn in years to come, because when you've committed yourself to another person for life, four years isn't all that much. But over four short years, our relationship has grown deeper and stronger, and if I can keep learning how marriage thrives each year, then we are well on our way to forever.
Successes and Failures of a Beginner Gardener
Gardening is a valuable skill, especially if you desire to save money in the grocery budget and aim to live a healthy lifestyle. You don't have to live on a large plot of land in order to grow your own produce either! Many people automatically think living in a house with a fenced in yard limits what they can grow. This is far from true. I wish I would have understood more about gardening when I lived in a suburban neighborhood. But I didn't, and because of that, our garden was a failure and I deemed it a waste of time.
This is like the coffee talk corner. Sometimes I give organization tips or relationship advice, but a lot of times I'm just sharing about the everyday moments that make up my life.
