Rock Climbing Weekend in Vantage, Washington

On a Friday afternoon in August of 2019 I came home from work and my husband surprised me with some camping plans. "Pack your bags, honey. We're going camping!" "Really?" I ask. "Yup, and rock climbing!" "Rock climbing?!" "Yes, with our neighbors Steven and Inna!" "How fun," I exclaimed, "but there's so much to do!" "Not to worry. Everything is packed and loaded in the trailer, all you need to do is pack your stuff." "Wow," I thought, how delightful is this?!

Budget Tips

Vacationing on a Budget

Vacations and getaways, long or short, are essential to a balanced life. It somehow recalibrates our sense of being and reminds us that life is not all about work, but that we need time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and that spending quality time with loved ones makes us richer in ways that our jobs are not able to. Growing up my parents never took us on any vacations. They simply could not afford it. That does not mean I did not have a great childhood, I have wonderful memories of my childhood. But when I became a mother and had a family of my own, I wanted to give my children what I did not have growing up. Not just material things, but things like new perspectives and experiences.
