Hi everyone,

It's been difficult for me to post of late and I've missed you all.  With the growing pains of the board changes, intermittent to no internet connection because of Sandy and most importantly because I was busy getting married I have been MIA :)

To put it simply, our wedding day was such a beautiful experience of happiness and love!  We couldn't have asked for a better day weather wise either.

On another subject I wanted to report my October month's progress on my debt freedom campaign.  The DH & I worked hard to pay off $5175.00 in October!  We really surprised ourselves given that we also had wedding expenses to cover but we had some money set aside for that.  Our initial goal was to pay off the debt by Dec 31 2012 but we are optomistic that we can get the job done realistically by mid-December but secretly we're shooting for the end of November lol.

Here is our debt total progress chart since we started our debt freedom march ;)

Aug 1st 2012  $16,622.21 Sept 1st 2012  $12,267.21 Oct 1st 2012  $9,649.04 Nov 1st 2012  $4,474.04

I hope that those that were in Sandy's path are unharmed and are safe.

No time for a honeymoon at the moment due to our work schedules.  We are hoping to create some downtime during the Christmas holidays and escape somewhere, anywhere!

Oh yes Dee there will be a budget for the honeymoon but I won't lose it mentally if we go over it lol!

Serenity!  I'm already picturing how fast and fat my E-fund will be LOL!  Knowing that we'll be in a position to do so much more with our money is freeing.  We already are not wasteful consumers but if I want to spend a couple hundred dollars on a gift for the DH, I will no longer have to quadruple question the purchase and that, my friend, is an amazing feeling to me.

Thank you Marie.  I really wanted for us to be in a healthier financial position by the time we got married and I'm very proud of our efforts.  You've been an incredible inspiration for me over the years seeing you pay off over 6 figures in debt...I believe that you and many other members with your efforts helped me to get to this point :)
