Autumn Love



I know things have been quiet around here lately, but I have a really exciting reason for why…

Steve and I ELOPED!! We’re married. MARRIED!!!! Oh my goodness, I am so excited! We got married on Sunday, October 12th at Showalter’s Orchard in Timberville, Virginia and it was the PERFECT fall day.

I literally cannot wait to tell you ALL about our day of love, but for now I’m going to leave you with this gorgeous picture of ourscourtesy of our a.m.a.z.i.n.g photographer, Caroline Meyers, of Caroline Meyers Photography out of New Market, Virginia. LOVE her!

Wait—one more thing before I go. Last year, on my birthday, which is TODAY, I wrote a post entitled True Love is  Gift…what are the odds that exactly 1 year later, I’m writing to tell you that I got married?!

Love is in the air! Yessssssss!

Smart Money Smart Kids by Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze



I breezed through a great book a few weeks ago, and it’s perfect for today’s Money Monday post.

Smart Money Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money is a brand new book from Dave Ramsey and his daughter, Rachel Cruze. If you've been following my Money Monday posts, then you’re familiar with the Dave Ramsey plan and all my talk about it. But, if you’re new to my blog, then right now you might be thinking Who is Dave Ramsey?.

No worries, you can click here to read the previous posts in my Money Monday series. You can also click "Debt Free Journey” on the menu bar at the top of the page.

I loved this book. That’s right; I’ll just come right out and say it from the start. Loved it! Since learning about Dave Ramsey and starting our debt free journey, we've had our eye on the goal of being 100% debt free. That goal started over 3 years ago. That means, for over 3 years, we've lived on next to nothing, so that the rest of our money can be put toward our debt at the end of each month.
