Happy Memorial Day!

Hello everyone! I hope all of you had a great weekend and I hope it’s a great Monday for you as well. For those of you here in the United States, Happy Memorial Day!

I’m taking today off from my normal blog writing, but I’ll be back tomorrow. Today, I’m going to sit back, try to relax, and enjoy the company of those that I love the most. I’ll still fit in some work though, as I can’t get enough of that in my life – good thing I love working! :)

Anyway, Memorial Day isn’t just about the start of Summer and BBQ season.

I want to thank everyone who has served and is currently serving in the military. If it weren’t for all of you, I don’t know where I would be! I know I mostly talk about personal finance here at MakingSenseofCents, but please remember the true meaning of Memorial Day and take a look at the infographic below.

Happy Memorial Day!

I’m No Longer An Anonymous Blogger

For around 1.5 years, I was a semi-anonymous blogger. I used my real name, gave out my Facebook profile and so on, but I never posted many pictures of myself directly on my blog. However, that changed and now I am completely public. It does stink a little because I have to be a little more careful about what I publicly share (such as with exact financial amounts).


My Student Loans Are Gone

I eliminated ALL of my student loans in 2013, and to this day it still doesn’t feel real. I’m glad that we could get rid of them so quickly because I really hated having them hang over my head.
