Hi everyone

Hello everybody,

I've posted a few times but I've never formally introduced myself. I was thinking about starting a new topic but thought I should do this first.

What a great app, I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed reading, and learning from all of you since I joined a couple of months ago.

Quick facts about me:

Married, 38, two kids 8 (girl) & 6 (boy). I'm hoping to ER in twelve years. Current network, not including our house, is around 1.2. We have been very blessed with two solid incomes, and try to take advantage of that by saving like crazy. Over the last decade we save about 45% of our gross income annually.

Goals: keep learning, planning, remain patient, and grateful.

I think that's enough out of me, thanks again for being so open, respectful, and thoughtful.
