So this happened this week.
It was close to 50 degrees on Friday in Iowa in February. This is a rare occurrence this time of year and it usually happens about the time of winter that I wish I lived in Hawaii. So even though the wind gusts were closing in on 60 miles per hour I was excited because it meant that I didn’t have to wait until June to enjoy the sunroof in my new car.

So that happened, too. I took the big plunge and purchased my first latest model new car. It’s a thrilling feeling knowing we’ve paid down our debt enough to afford the latest and greatest model of anything. It’s an accomplishment and something to be proud of. And while I was sad to say goodbye to the first car I ever bought on my own, I was more excited and proud that, as a couple, we’ve said goodbye to debt that had been chasing us for years.
Some days adulting is hard. Some days the winter days in the Midwest are depressing. But this week, I have been living the high life. Or maybe I’m just high from that new car smell. I’m not sure. Either way, this past week was pretty darn awesome.
