Birthdays, Pugs, and Minimalism: January/February Update All Posts / Life / More

If you’re new here, I post an update every couple of months that details how we’re doing on our debt payoff and other goals.  I also include some highlights of the months and what I’ve been reading and watching…because life is about more than just reaching goals.  As a Type A person (with debt), I easily get caught up in trying to be productive all the time.  It’s important to relax once in a while 🙂

January and February have been an eventful couple of months.  I paid off another student loan (yay!), our cat was diagnosed with kidney disease and had to be put down 🙁 , and I turned 28.
