For several years, I kept a blog about our eating, reading, and writing adventures.   Posts are still available at:

Eating Reading Writing


There are numerous blogs we follow on personal finance, lifestyle, travel, and food.

We look at this list and are struck by how eclectic it is.  At times, they even seem schizophrenic in their radically different perspectives.  For instance, Mr. Money Mustache and Early Retirement Extreme might be horrified to discover that they are on the same list as Manger and Daily Connoisseur–and vice versa.

Sometimes the differences in focus are owing to Will’s vs. my interests.  Other times, it’s because we are very keen on financial independence and retiring early (FIRE), but not always at the expense of the occasional forays into living the good life, travel, and enjoying arte far niente (art of doing nothing), preferably in France or Italy.

No worries though.  We have our eyes firmly on the prize of reaching FIRE before our countdown clock shows “0.”  Then, we hope to share what we do with all our days AFTER we retire!
