Cottage car rides

James and I only live in the city because we have to for work. We have the country in our souls and would much rather be on acreage than living anywhere near a concrete jungle. Our dream is to build a log cabin with the mountains behind us and a lake in front of us. In the meantime, the cottage is our sanctuary!

Ever since James and I first started dating, we talked about getting a cottage together (you can read some fun facts about us in my recent Instagram post). When we lost my dad, we gained a new perspective and decided to accelerate our retirement goal because you never know how long you have or how many healthy years you’ll be granted together.T

There isn’t a day that goes by where I’m not working towards one of my goals. I believe consistently hustling for what I want will pay dividends as I learn to be disciplined and strategic with my time, effort and mental energy. I may not have achieved my goals yet, but I’m closer today than I was yesterday and that’s a great feeling!

Are you a country or city person? What goals are you currently working towards?
