A New Year & A Look Back at the Last 5!

Wow! I can't believe it is already 2015! I was just thinking back to how fast the last five years have gone... Here is a quick look back:

2010: Earned my Masters in Education

2011: Got Engaged!

2012: Got Married!!!

2013: Adopted this sweet boy, Dillard

2014: Found out we are expecting our first baby!

So 2015 is going to be a pretty big year because we can't wait to meet our baby girl! With the arrival of a new year we have decided our New Year's Resolution is going to be more of a money savings resolution.  

With our baby on the way we want for her to be able to go to college in 18 years without the worry of paying tuition, we have made a resolution for 2015 to help jump start her college savings! To reach our goal we are going to start a 52 week savings plan.  I love counting backwards, so this first week we will put $52 into her savings and count down each week until week 52 when we put $1 into her account. It will look like this:

If we follow this plan we will end the year with over $1300 in her account! If you are interested in doing something similar then click on the picture and download the PDF.

So here is to a year of our new baby and saving! Happy New Year's to you, your family and your New Year's Resolution!
