1337 Family

I have mentioned it many times before that my online presence in the past few years brought many wonderful people into my life that I am proud to now call friends.

Last week Works made a stop on our island during their epic journey in which they are planning to visit all state parks and live life simple and rich. I adored them even as I followed their adventures through their photos and website. But it is still amazing how we clicked as soon as we shook hands and became friends over some great burgers Joshua served up and a hike. Best of all our sons had a great time playing together.

They are such inspiring and fun family. I really love how passionate Joshua and Jessa are about making the most of this beautiful world, loving and enjoying it fully every day while having only a few possessions and so many amazing memories. So much so I decided to declutter my life and get rid of everything that does not serve me. I locked myself up in a walk in that I share with my husband and I went through all my clothes. Two hours later I managed to throw away two credit card receipts I must have hidden so hubby wouldn’t know that I went a little overboard at the outlet mall. Clearly I am work in progress…

As with all other times when I have the most amazing company and great adventures I completely forgot to take any photos to prove it. Lucky for you, Works recently told their story to Dark Rye Magazine and here it is:

Happy Travels my dear friends!

Money matters

I feel like I am not great at giving advice.

However I am pretty good at spending money. And not so good at finding ways to save it. So I guess if you asked me for advice right this very moment how to make money without spending money I would say: Play in one of online casinos. Maybe casino bonus, where you can win real money without depositing any first. That would be a no deposit bonus, I think. For which you would need no deposit casino bonus codes. Since we all know codes help you save.

My other advice to you would be to sometimes bite the bullet. When you get a nice email saying that there is a way for you to make a little extra money as a blogger, there is nothing wrong with considering it. Even I occasionally write an odd post that makes no sense. After all my son is going to kindergarden soon and needs some school clothes. You can be a little cross with me while reading this but in the end a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.

Maybe tomorrow I will come up with something a wee bit more funny. Or I will be making money without spending any. Who knows…
