100% Debt-Free


On Sunday March 2, 2014, at approximately 5:12PM, something totally incredible happened. Something worth photographing. Something definitely worth blogging about.

With one anticlimactic click of the mouse, Weez and I made the final payment on his student loans!

It’s a pretty neat feeling. And gives me (even more) insane amounts of appreciation to my parents who gave me the gift of my liberal arts college education that got me where I am today.

And with that, Weez and I are now 100% debt-free!

Cabo was obviously very proud and shared in the high-fiving.

After the high fives, Weez and I celebrated with a fabulous bottle of wine and the realization that we can direct this newfound financial freedom towards other sweet stuff. Like maybe owning a home one day (what?!), starting a family (don’t get too excited, folks), or other things grown ups talk about. (Unrelated, what do grown ups talk about?!)

So cheers to anyone out there who is chipping away, or has finished chipping away at their student loans! That’s no small feat and I’m proud of you! I’m proud of us.

    oh my GOODNESS, I cannot even HANDLE that pic of Cabo high-fiving!!! Congratulations!!! Student loans are no fun- Matt & I are still working on mine, but we’ll definitely feel like those pictures express when they’re gone (gosh, and I didn’t even get a phd so that’s even more impressive)!! Miss you!!
