Our Story

We started this blog as I was trying to figure out budgeting (totally different when a spouse is involved and you can't just boss them around, darn it!) and how to decrease my constant stress at time constraints, did I mention money, and always being busy. We also have spent many years working for ourselves and starting businesses, so I talk about that ALOT too! So many challenges to overcome, but so much joy in doing what we love!

Sometimes it feels like it has been a slow journey, but we are finding that a simple, balanced life is what we are wanting. As we figure out this life, we would love to have you join us.

If you are looking for expert advice on money or starting a business, fill out our contact form and I'll be in touch with you soon.

If you are looking for a writer, editor or social media manager, please feel out this form, let's see if I am the person you are looking for!
