Calling all people in need of a freelancer...

Whenever hubby and I get back from a trip to the cottage (and by "the cottage" I mean one of the cottages that we do NOT own, but manage to finagle an invite to), hubby immediately starts checking MLS for cottages we can buy.

Then he starts asking me questions like "If we weren't living where we are - where could you see yourself living?" And after 11 years together, I know that secretly he really wants me to answer "Up north in the middle of nowhere so we can live off the earth like mountain men."

So... that leads me to believe that one day, we will probably be living up north. Maybe not like mountain men. But up in cottage country, where the hubster will probably be happiest. (Especially in his old age as he gets crotchetier and crotchetier).

And THAT leads me to believe that I need to start building up my freelance work so that I can still make money whilst living in the middle of nowhere.

In all honesty, that's what I ideally want to be doing one day. Living the life of a freelance writer... making enough money to get by comfortably, but also having the flexibility to have a family and be at home more.

So... yeah. If you know anyone in need of a freelance writer (in advertising specifically) - call me up! My hubby thanks you in advance.

  2. Wow - thanks Courtney!! Anytime you want to remove this (I'm guessing that's what DD is right??), feel free. I've written down the contact info. Thanks again!!

  3. LOL. That's what I was doing last night. Looking at cottages on MLS. Though I must admit, I don't know if I could bring myself to pay twice as much for a vacation home than what I paid for my primary residence. The prices are crazy right now.
