This past week has been one of looking at finances, playing with spreadsheets, and exploring budget options, which has led me to reflect on our journey to a debt-free homestead and what things I might say to someone looking to follow the same path. None of this is ground-breaking news to anyone, but I hope it could help even just one person with one little aspect on their journey too.

It’s been years since I first read the Lake Isle of Innisfree poem, and I loved it from the start. I was in a very different place in my life then, at home with my parents, just starting off in the tech world. As much as Innisfree sounded like a place I wanted to be, I didn’t spend too much time thinking of how I could get there.
