Fun Mail

The most wonderful mail to get is...

Congratulations! Your loan has been paid in full!

If you do not know how good this feels, it is either because you have no debt to pay, congrats to you, or you have yet to pay it off. It has been a long time since I have posted about our debt payoff plan. This is mostly because we have been plugging away at it and nothing new has happened till now.

It is time to give you all a huge update! When our MN tax return comes in we will have $0 in credit card debt! This has been a huge focus for us for 7 years now and feels incredible. That is not all though. We have paid off several of our student loans as well and the rest will be paid in full in late summer/early fall! That would leave us with only a home loan.

It has been a long, hard road. The rewards are worth all the hard work though. We will no longer be bogged down by debt and we certainly won't be accumulating any again. If you are thinking about getting rid of your own debt or just aren't there yet, feel free to take a peek at my Stretch It posts here: I hope these posts will encourage and inspire you in your own journey to being debt free!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
