I’m known as Mrs. Dreamer around here. I am blessed to live in Colorado with my husband of 23 years along with our three teenagers – Dreamer Boy 19, Dreamer Boy 16, Dreamer Girl 12 (definitely close enough to being a teenager!) and our dog.
Mr. Dreamer and I grew up in Southern California. We moved to Colorado two years ago after living in Las Vegas for 25 years (yes, people DO live in Las Vegas!) Mr. Dreamer had a job opportunity in Colorado and we were ready for a change. Our kids were on board, so we sold our house, packed our stuff, and started a new chapter in our life.
We’ve had some definite ups and downs in the last two years! Mr. Dreamer’s job did not work out, which we unfortunately found out a week after we purchased a house. This actually turned out to be a blessing for us. We have learned a great deal about ourselves, where we want to be, and definitely where we DON’T want to be! Mr. Dreamer now has a job that he really loves and we know it’s where he is supposed to be.
I’ve been a work-at-home mom for the last 20 years. I’m the finance nerd of my household and definitely a homebody. I love to read, although learned to knit this past year which has really cut into my precious reading time! My family loves hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, and just being in the beautiful mountains nearby. Mr. Dreamer is a much better cook than I am and Dreamer Girl is becoming a darn good baker! Both Dreamer Boys know enough not to starve so I feel my job as a mom is done, right? Ha!
We are doing our best to raise our kids in a world of entitlement and materialism and to help them make good choices. We are on a mission to get our finances under control in order to live a simpler life because we have big plans and dreams for our future!
