Today is my husband's last day of work. After 35 years working at the same company, today he retires. He is retiring a bit early, at age 61.
It's a new beginning. A new chapter of our lives together.
And since this is a new beginning for us both, I'm using the subject of "adjusting to retirement" to create a new beginning for this blog.
We will be on a "fixed income" from now on, but because we have spent the last 35 years saving and planning, we will be able to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. We probably won't be buying a vacation home or traveling around the world, but we will be comfortable on a day to day basis, and be able to travel a few weeks a year - which is what we have always done pre-retirement.
The really good news is - I get to hang out with my best friend a lot more. I thoroughly enjoy my husband's company, and am delighted to have more of it. I know I'm VERY lucky in that way!
The new blog will be a reflection of our new lifestyle - being frugal, traveling, grandchildren, household tips, cooking and baking healthy foods, and, in general, learning to adjust to retirement.
So here's to a new start, a new beginning, a new journey. And a new chapter to this blog!!
Life is good - and about to get even better!!!
