I love the tree-lined streets bursting with green, the flowers blooming like fireworks in the backyard, the distant rumbling that precedes a good storm. I love the cloudless, breezy days you’d give […]
It was right around our daughter’s first birthday that we realized we needed to start creating a budget. Diapers, formula, tons of cute teeny tiny baby clothes, and (of course) several weekly trips to Starbucks were starting to ravage our pocketbooks. We knew we had to do something quick.
