another dream accomplished

It's been a longtime dream of mine to be completely debt free, and its finally here!

This week, I made the final deposit against the loan on my flat, I own the place free and clear! It's an odd feeling to owe noone. It's liberating, yet anti-climatic.

Back in Connecticut, I dreamed a lot about how life would be when the house was paid off. Maybe we'd buy a vacation home, or maybe we'd go to Machu Picchu, or I'd work part time, go back to school for photography, or to become a chef.

But my life has changed so much since then. When I made that final deposit and I thought about how I might change things now that this major responsibility is gone, I couldn't think of a single thing I'd like to change. It's an odd and unfamiliar feeling to be so completely happy and content with everything around me, I really have built the life I wanted.

So what will I do now that I've reached one of my biggest goals in life? Well, it does free up my travel budget a bit ;)

I'll come back to Venice, but this news is too good not to share!
