“Beginnings are sudden, but also insidious. They creep up on you sideways, they keep to the shadows, they lurk unrecognized. Then, later, they spring.”
― Margaret Atwood,
This is the start of something new for me, but in the midst of lots of life that is already happening. I found the desire to start this blog as we are embarking upon a gut-reno of our future home, which will take most of our money and some of our sanity along with it!
As I have prepared for this step, I have done a lot of reading; on personal finance to get us saving, on renovations and managing renovations to get us ready to spend those savings. I found that I was looking for a voice more like mine; one that is willing to share the details of this journey, ambitiously looking forward and cautiously holding onto my wallet with both hands. I hope that you find the reading of it as fun as I find the writing.
