Debt Busters

Today marks an anniversary of ours that we are both very proud of and thankful for. A year ago, after celebrating my cousin Juli and her husband, Blake's wedding, we went to a church service with family at Northpoint in Georgia. The service was about financial responsibility and struck a cord with Emily and me regarding our own finances. After the sermon, we decided that we would try as hard as we could to get completely rid of our student loan debt within the next year. With generous help from family in many different forms, hard work, and the blessing of job opportunities, we are thrilled to celebrate that we are completely debt free. We wanted to share this accomplishment with sincere gratitude!

Way to go! What a huge accomplishment! Now, go out and celebrate with your credit card. ;)

Juli said...

Congratulations guys! That is AWESOME!! And meanwhile, we're racking on the debt that comes along with medical school. Guess it will take a while for us to get to the place you're at ;-)

Nice try Emily - close but not quite. Remember, you still owe me from that one time when I loaned you some coin to buy that candy when you were five? With inflation and interest rates in mind since 1989, I'm thinking a payment plan of 36 monthly installments will just about cover it (I'll be nice and won't demand the "full amount"). But don't worry, 3 years is a not too long.
