The first time we travelled together was on our honeymoon. Bubba’s parents generously used their timeshare and flight points to send us to a gorgeous resort in Maui. That’s when we caught the travel bug.
On our flight home, we offered to stay back a few hours on our over-filled flight, and got round-trip return flights to Hawaii in exchange.
We returned to Hawaii on our 1yr anniversary, and to say the realities of traveling on our own dime hit us pretty hard and left us paying off our credit cards for some time.
We vowed to never travel again until we could pay for it, in full, in cash, before we even left.
Flash forward 8 years and aside from road trips to visit family and the occasional trip with my parents (thanks to their generosity, much of the time) we finally hit the point where we could travel, out of the country even, and afford it because of our frugal living and budgeting habits.
No words can express how good it feels to go on vacation knowing it’s been paid for in full, or at least saved up for in full, before even leaving our driveway.
Stick with it.
Don’t give up.
Don’t pull out the credit card.
Stick with the budget, stick with the plan, stick with your goals. It may take a while but you WILL get there.
And let me tell you...it feels so good. ❤️
Where’s your dream place to travel?
Mexico 🇲🇽 is where Davey went on his mission, we took our honeymoon, where we spent our 10 yr anniversary and now we are making amazing family memories. To say this place is special to us is an understatement. @hrhrivieramaya has made it even more special. It’s for sure where I would suggest to stay if you are wanting to come to Mexico. #hardrockhotel#hrhrivieramaya#madeformusic
Takin’ it easy & losing track of time in good ol MX 🇲🇽🌴

The PDX Crew! Shore dive that had us swimming 45 minutes out past 2 reefs and floating with the current along miles of coast line for over 3 hours. Never realized I was such a strong swimmer but when you’re facing intense currents and an underwater fight with gorgeous fish you realize strength you never knew you had 💓 • #Learning#femaleempowerment#FemaleDiver#Spearfishing#NewYearNewAdventures
