Milestone as well!

Just hit the three-quarter million mark in the retirement accounts! Only 16 months ago we were at half a million. That's a 50% increase in 16 months. Crazy! Just doing the same contributions we always have. However, just last month we got some COL raises so we are now adding to the 403bs.

I'm 38 and my H is 35.

(not doing net worth, but that would be higher due to the house)

Nice work for your ages.

He had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it . . . It faced, or seemed to face, the whole external world for an instant and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. -- The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
