Starting the journey

For about a year, we’ve been examining and reevaluating our financial situation.  We close on our first house this month, just in time for me to turn 30 next month.  We’ll need to pay off capital gains taxes from the house purchase, my student loans, and the mortgage – and I declare before the ENTIRE WORLD (or at least you, dear reader) that we will be debt free by the time I turn 40.

I will post exact numbers closer to my birthday, but I hope you’ll join me as I chronicle our journey to debt freedom, financial independence, home ownership, and more.  Welcome, and happy holidays!
