Greetings from a Rich Aunt!

Just a few months into my move back home I received word that my life was going to change! I, the eldest of three, at the tender of age of young and dumb (23 going on 24) was becoming an aunt! I was so emotional at the thought of becoming an aunt, except for the frightening realization that my life was not together at all. I always saw myself as the “rich aunt”. The one who gave the kids savings bonds for Christmas and new laptops for back to school. Someone who could write a check for all the boxes of girl scout cookies that would get my niece a badge, or buy all the pasta for the fundraiser to be catered to my nephew’s football team. And yet, here I was freshly fired from a temp-to-hire job with a baby shower to host that led me to all sorts of odd jobs to fund. I was BROKE! So now you’re probably thinking me, well how the hell did YOU become the rich aunt? Simple. I changed my mindset on the word “rich”. Along the way I have developed better behaviors. I also learned having more happens when you learn to appreciate what you have already. Sadly, this blog isn’t a guide to  how I finessed the system or landed a multi-millionaire to fund my goals. But it does share with you how I made the life I have luxurious and my journey to make my finances match the richness I feel within. I invite all who stop by my blog to learn with me as we explore the travels, eats, tricks, and treats that may not only gain you wealth but make you RICH in SPIRIT!
