Who is this lady?
So glad you asked!
I'm Alison, a Southern California native making a life in the down-to-earth Midwest. I'm a wife to Kris, dog mom to Old Fezziwig, and cat mom to The Drake. I like to run and bike, (try to) keep a tidy and cozy home, and seek out joy in the little things. I'm desperately seeking a life of freedom from work that I have to do.
Here you'll find musings on money and my just-now-starting journey to financial independence, little and medium sized house things I'm up to, and eating and exercising triumphs and fail-umphs.
This is a place for both dreaming and doing. Welcome to Happy Life Happy Wallet!
