Monthly Successes:

We had an amazing trip to Peru this month! We trekked for 5 days along trails through the beautiful Peruvian landscape and completed out journey with a sunrise view of Machu Picchu! We also climbed to the top of Rainbow Mountain and got ourselves involved in the celebrations in Cusco City. It was a trip of a life time and we would highly recommend this adventure to others!

Monthly Shortcomings:

With all the traveling we were unable to track food expenses accurately. We will keep track for July and see if we are in line with our expectations.


Mrs. Horizon’s honeybees re-queened so it looks like they should make it. The second round of aquaponics plants are almost ready to plant in the system. The first lettuces finished up and we ended up getting about 10 salads from them. We are hoping with the second crop we get even more! We are really starting to get momentum on the house payoff we are jumping nearly 3% per month. We are on track for a early 2020 payoff if we keep it up.
