I don’t know about you, but every now and then I suck at being productive.

While at the beach last week, I was reminded of how much I love being surrounded by million dollar homes.

[I’m currently at the beach doing my own type of date (with children – hah), but in my stead, please enjoy this fantastic post by Elliott Bailey. Founder of FightForHer.com and lover of keeping the excitement going in relationships. Without killing your wallet!] Budgets buy freedom.

And on these days it’s very, very, hard for me to sit down and write to you about it. So today I’m not. Instead, I’m going to tell you what I do on days like this. And that is: […]

We’re usually a lot more well off […]
