The exciting times have started to arrive. Later on today, I will be heading off to the airport to fly out to Boston! As someone who has never ventured off to the East Coast before, I’m amped up and looking forward to this next adventure. I’m pretty burned out right now so this R&R time is very much needed. I’ll be lounging in Boston until next Wednesday, and then I head off to New York City! I’ll be getting there by train, which was paid for by the points I accrued for clearing the minimum spend on the Barclays Arrival card. I’ll be leaving NYC on June 2. If any East Coast bloggers or readers want to meet up and chat, or grab some coffee, let me know. I know there is a large NYC contingent of personal finance bloggers and early FI enthusiasts for sure!
While I’m away vacationing, the blog updates will slow down a bit. I may post some pictures of the trip sporadically, but probably won’t get a chance to write any new articles. I should have a lot to share when I get back though. 🙂
In other news, I am still working hard on saving funds, as I hope to purchase at least one more rental property sometime later this year. If everything goes smoothly, I may have enough for a downpayment by the end of June. Since I will be traveling around the world in August, I probably won’t start the whole process (searching, visiting, closing, etc.) until I get back. I’ll most likely hold off until September, which is when I plan to visit Memphis/Dallas/Houston.
Also, I wanted to take this time to thank everyone for the amazing feedback I got from the ask the readers post. This was very constructive feedback, and I’m excited about all the new ideas and suggestions. Hopefully, this will help improve the blog and make it even better! Let’s give the people what they want to read. So, don’t worry, there will be no “how to save $$$ by cutting cable out of your life” posts coming down the pipeline. Although, I may want to do another “latte post” in the near future… 🙂
I hope everyone has a fun, relaxing Memorial Day weekend. Go out there and create some wonderful memories. I’ll see you all in a week!
P.S. Just got my Global Entry card yesterday and am stoked to try out TSA Pre later today!!
