Family Trip to the Apple Orchard

Short family trip to the local Apple Orchard.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)

    1. Out by us, Jonnie Appleseed came thru long long ago and planted a bunch of apple trees, and these are where the orchards popped up, or at least that is what I was told when going on field trips. Those trees are long gone, but they have offspring trees from the originals. It is alot of fun, you typically walk or ride a hayride out to the orchard, then pick what you want to buy, eat a few. It is fun, everything is typically way overpriced and there is a ton of people there, but a fall classic by us.
