We were recently asked to participate in a “Disney Friends Blog Hop” for people to discover other Disney blogs in the community. (You can learn a little more about that at the the bottom of this post!) We also realized with many new visitors recently it may be a good time to share a bit more about the two authors behind the posts. There are two things we tend to get asked pretty frequently. Many people are curious of how we decided to launch a Disney based blog geared towards an adult crowd. Many people are also curious about the term “DINKs” (Dual Income No Kids) and we wanted to touch a bit on our journey to decide to be childfree. So here is a little peek into the world of Julie and Andrew…Read More
So when you hear the term “happily ever after” what vision comes to mind? A Prince and Princess riding off into the sunset? A wedding kiss? Thematic music? What most likely doesn’t come to mind is anything to do with finances and budgeting. That just doesn’t sound very romantic now does it? But the truth is, money can be one of the biggest factors that can affect a couple’s happily ever after.
As a couple we invest a lot of time into our relationship and continuing to grow together. One of our New Year’s resolutions for 2019 was to improve our finances. When we found out about a hip new company called Financial Gym it sounded like the perfect opportunity to partner up and kick off our resolution on the right foot. So read on for our step-by-step journey and get a little peek into our financial habits…Read More

Last month we had booked a trip to visit Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort. We had also scheduled a Pilots’n’Paws rescue flight on the way home to bring a German Shepherd back from South Carolina to the the D.C. metro area. Unfortunately Hurricane Florence had other plans, and our whole trip was canceled. When a natural disaster hits, there are usually many animals that need to be transported to new locations. So last weekend when the same rescue organization reached out about a couple puppies needing to be moved from a post hurricane area, we jumped at the chance to help out. Keep reading to learn more about our flight path that day (and for some really cute puppy pics!)Read More
Every couple has a love story. Ours happens to involve airplanes, the beach and a meddling Dad named Steve. Get a glimpse into the day that started Julie and Andrew on their path to happily ever after and learn why we decided to celebrate by flying to the ocean for a day date.Read More
So you have probably been wondering why we have been M.I.A. the last couple weeks. Well you know how life likes to throw you fun little challenges from time to time? I guess we were due. Our washing machine decided to completely malfunction and start leaking water all over the laundry room floor. And then under the floor. And then continue into the next room. When we stepped on the floor planks and saw water bubbling up between all we could think was "Oh boy..."Read More
This weekend we completed a double Pilots’n’Paws rescue mission, flying two pets to their new fur-ever homes. Our day started boarding a Cessna 182 in the suburbs of Washington, DC. We flew over snow covered ground to the mountains of Western Maryland, where we picked our first passenger...Read More

When we realized we were coming up on a milestone year we started discussing the possibility of planning a vow renewal. Read more on our planning journey and alternate end result.Read More
