So, this year, my husband and I got a good size tax return. I like to think it was mostly thanks to me because I was still in college last year…
But in all honesty, we both worked hard last year, and I feel we deserve the return.
What is exciting about the tax return is that we got to pay off all of our “little” debts which results in us saving over $100/mo in payments! The biggest of our “little” debts was a substantial amount that my husbands parents had let us borrow when we purchased our house. I am SO grateful for their help, but I am SO happy that we have paid them back.
We did have some extra money after paying those things off, so I was able to invest in my little freelance business with some new equipment. (In order to save money, I opted for the slowest shipping possible and am still waiting for one more package…ugh! Patience, I need to learn patience.)
First off, I bought a speed light (flash)! I can’t want to start using it for indoor photography and weddings!

Next, I bought a 3 light, light kit with umbrella diffusers.

I still have so much to learn, backdrops and props to buy, and a portfolio to build…but I’m happy with my humble beginnings!
