Our Financial Independence / Retire Early Journey

About Us


We are a family of four transitioning towards FIRE (Financial Independence / Retire Early), and we’re almost there. With a lot of hard work and a ton of luck, we reached our lean FIRE number in 2018. That’s when I quietly left my job to pursue other interests. Then, during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, we hit our FIRE number.  Now, as we count our blessings, my spouse is stepping back as well. We’re taking our first big steps towards away from traditional 9-to-5 work and being Financially Independent and Early Retired as a couple. This site will chronicle our journey as we take these next steps and beyond.

Are we crazy?

Maybe. Maybe not. Sometimes, it feels that way.



We’re on A New Path

We’ve saved. We’ve planned. We’ve second-guessed ourselves. Now, we’re stepping into a new way of living. It’s pretty scary, but we’re happy and privileged to be on this path.
