What were your highs and lows this month friends?


  1. Love that you have more highs than lows! Great that the ER visit revealed all is OK xxx Do you read The Simple Dollar? Great tips on budgeting/frugality etc....he (Trent) explains it all so well, so thoroughly, his tips are so inspiring and 'work-able' - I recommend it for your budgeting/controlling spending....(you'll get lost reading archived posts!)

    1. Just looked it up! Yes I am already getting lost reading posts. It's wonderful! Thank you!
