The Friday Feast is my attempt at picking out a few things from the personal finance community that I found interesting this week. It’s also a chance for me to keep you fine readers updated on where we are in the U.S.

It’s going to be the year where I discover what’s truly possible in this lifestyle after full-time work. Perhaps the beginning of a new life, you never know.
It’s going to happen, I can feel it! Now, onto the blogs.
