But Why Start a Blog?

This is not even close to what my workspace looks like.

But why did I decide to start a blog?

Honestly, I’m still trying to figure that out myself.

And truth be told, there are so many different reasons.

I have, over the past 18 months, developed a love for personal finance.

Ironically, I also recently filed for bankruptcy (more on that later).

I wanted a place where I could talk about my life in the trenches of motherhood, work, personal finance, and how I’m forever and always working to be a better version of myself. I also wanted a place where I can track my progress in realm of personal finance. Where I can hold myself accountable…to myself.

So this is my first post, hopefully in a line of many, many posts, about my life. I hope you enjoy it.
