The official bio is this:
We are in our mid 30s.
We started our FI journey in 2016, a year after we married.
We are a two income household. My wife is a Registered Nurse and I am a Data Analyst. We live in Denver, CO.
Our strategy is simple – save and invest one income, and live on the other. We have maxed our retirement accounts (2 401Ks and 2 Roths) every year since 2017. We hold 3-4 months of emergency funds in VMMXX. The rest go into a non retirement taxable account – primarily VTI/VTSAX.
We track our expenses, but do not keep a budget. We spend where we must, but are, by nature, not wanting for much.
We do not side hustle. We do not own rental properties, yet.
We’re hoping to reach FI in 2026 (in
9, 8, 7, 6 years).
I’d like to continue working after FI – either take up a more exciting job, or a less demanding one, or do multiple part time jobs.
My wife plans to work less hours and spend more time with our daughter.
The idea is to have the option to do what we like. That’ll include lots of travelling, reconnecting and spending time with family and friends, building new relationships, pursuing old and new interests, and raising our daughter.
