  1. Hi Dawn, it’s great to meet you! I can’t tell you how happy I am for you! I grinned all the way through your video. You have so much to be proud of – I hope someday you can share your journey with your daughter. You are AMAZING ! P S I love your hair, I had always pictured you as a brunette!

    • Thank you Sandra J! I
      Am almost a brunette now with lots if white!

      Its been a journey I am ready to put behind me for sure!

      Pinch me!!!!

  2. YAY! Congratulations! I have followed you from the beginning, and am so happy to see this post. While I’ve missed your daily blogs, I completely understand having to step back and not be reminded of it every day. I’ve been MIA from commenting, but always checking in. Not sure if you remember me, I had to stop blogging in 2015…. 😦 You’ve been an inspiration for my debt-free (non-bk) journey. I admire the fact that you kept this burden to yourself and didn’t tell your daughter. I was a kid who was put through all my parents financial woes, and it took a toll in the form of major anxiety. Anyway, thank you for sharing your road to being debt free and congrats on the discharge! I hope you sell your condo quickly and simplify your life for semi-retirement.

    • Thank you! Its been awhile. When my kid is older and we are hanging out over a cuppa, I will tell her the remember when story!

      Thank you for being here with me and I wish you the very best in your debt free journey!


  3. Congrats!!! So happy for you! I just got discharged a couple of weeks ago. Best feeling ever! Loved your video and your blog. It was such a good source of support.

    • Congratulations Bridget! We did it! It was bar none the most difficult thing,emotionally, financially and physically! But its over!

      Now moving on and taking the hard learned lessons with me!

      Thank you for following my journey!

      All the best!

  4. I couldn’t be happier about this if this was MY party. I have been following for so long, and cheering you along. I was just thinking of how much has changed in the years. You were always driving your daughter to MIDDLE SCHOOL and now she’s in college. I actually found your blog because I was looking for blogs about being sixty months away from retirement and wondering the most important steps. I was just captivated by your journey. I am beyond proud of you. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kimc! Thank you! One question? Are you retired??? I hope you are, or close.

      You have been a constant source of positive vibes for me! I cant thank you enough!!

      We did it! We got to this point. I honestly doubted it so many times.

      Yes I stared while my kid in middle school and here she is in college, working and living in her own.

      Perspective if just how long this has taken! Its a huge chunk out of ones life!

      Pls everybody keep in contact!

  7. Way to go Dawn!!!! This was a wonderful party; I am so happy for you! Now clean your house, sell your condo and enjoy life. We’ll get together when you get up here to Oregon or Washington. I know the blog has to come to an end but I’m going to miss it! You have become a part of my daily life and I’m glad we both made it!

  8. OMG, that is such good news. Loved the party video. I love Cupcake wine!!!! Well, I also like two buck chuck too…..so we have the same tastes!! You should be so proud. When we did Chapter 7 it was as you said, embarrassing and we too learned a lot. As for retiring, my husband is 67, healthy and still has to work full time to keep us going. Especially the health care. So glad you daughter is doing well too and good luck with your condo sale!!!!!
    Best to you in all your future endeavors!!!!

    • Thank you so much! My best to both you and your husband!

      Yes not working at all is not an option but if I can take advantage of this market I will have a wonderful down for my forever home!!

      Thank you Chris for being on this journey with me!
