Hey! So Glad You're Here.

Mrs. Chocolate and I have been married for almost 15 years.  We’ve been lucky to both have successful careers, especially given the fact that as a military officer we have lived in six different states, moved at least 10 times, and have had several deployments or assignments where we lived apart.  Through it all we’ve found a way to keep our finances growing and our marriage, though tested, strong.  We are chronicling our journey paying debt, investing and sharing the money lessons we've learned on our journey to financial independence to retire early (FIRE). In less than 15 years of marriage we went from close to $200,000 in debt to a $2,000,000 net worth.  We hope that you will be inspired, avoid some or all of our money mistakes, and grow your wealth through the lessons we share.  We're open to listening to your situation and give you advice, especially those of you in the military.  Feel free to send us an email.
