    I think it’s important to take stock of your current life, goals, and wants at least once a year, and a birthday seems a fine time to do it. It sounds to me that you are happy, healthy, and have a good fall back or return plan if/once it’s needed. Check. Check. Check. Now keep enjoying your present!

    I know I mentioned it on your Naples post, but my husband and I just quit our jobs and are traveling, and I love to read posts like this one. So thank you! 🙂 Now if we can figure out how to make some money while we’re at it…

    Bravo! My dream job would be a full-time mom and part-time writer with plenty of funds and PTO for the hubby in order to continue traveling. I’m not sure how my accounting skills would translate into that job other than keeping a tight control on budgets!
