Well, here we go!

Welcome to Adventure Rich! We are delighted you are here as we begin documenting our journey towards financial independence. Since this is our very first post, we would like to start off with an introduction.

The Adventure Rich Family

We are Mr. and Mrs. Adventure Rich, a couple of folks adventuring through this world with our son as we work to build a rich and meaningful life. Mr. Adventure Rich is a tall, handsome (Mrs. Adventure Rich typing here!) handyman who loves to not just live but to “live well” in small ways every day. Mrs. Adventure Rich is a driven and athletic business woman who has trouble sitting still. Adventure Rich Jr. is a rambunctious almost-2 year old who enjoys eating cheese and chasing cows (Yes- you read that correctly, cows. More to come on this one…).

Why “Adventure Rich”?

Adventure: When Mr. Adventure Rich and I went on our first date in his truck that kept breaking down, we both laughed, shrugged and agreed that life is “always an adventure”. This became our unofficial motto and we often come back to this saying when life throws the unexpected at us.

Rich: The word “rich” is often used in the context of wealth, money or excess means. While this definition is not all together out of place here (we will be writing about finances and our pursuit of financial freedom), this is not the primary intent. According to the Webster Dictionary, “rich” can also mean “magnificently impressive”, “vivid and deep in color”, “full and mellow in tone and quality” and “highly seasoned, fatty, oily or sweet” (love that last one!). We see the word “rich” as a robust word that we can relate to many aspects of our life.

Putting it together…

Adventure Rich is about exploring how to live a beautiful and rich life full of adventure as we pursue financial independence.

What to Expect

Adventure Rich will be a blog documenting our family’s attempt to see the adventure in all situations as we work towards financial freedom and ultimately, financial independence. You can expect articles charting our net worth, our perspectives on life and finances, and our lessons learned along the way.

We are thrilled to begin Adventure Rich and look forward to hearing from you!

Always an Adventure,
The Adventure Rich Family
