October 2017 Net Worth Update (+$14,082)

Highlights for October

  • October still had healthy gains after a significant bump in September.
  • We spent the first part of October on a Disney family vacation. I had a lot of heartburn about the expense of this trip for several months, but I came back convinced it was the right decision for our family. It was a magical (and exhausting) time for the whole group. In the end our entire trip cost us under $4,000 USD for our family of four for 6 nights/6 days in parks.
  • I also had another 2 week international business trip in October. I foresee work travel slowing down soon (I hope).
  • My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in late October! Hard to believe how fast time flies. I did buy my wife a gemstone necklace to mark the occasion and we celebrated with a nice kid-free dinner out.
