I’ve been counting down for months to get to this weekend. I’m sending you this email from an old English manor house. Not just any English manor house. It’s over 500 years old and is home to the Earl of Sandwich.
And yes, he did invent the sandwich. I asked.
(ps: interested in old English homes in the countryside? I’ve been sharing details of this house on Instagram.)
I’m on a wellness retreat, which is something I’ve never done before. I’m all about self-care, but I’ve never indulged like this. When this retreat was announced, I knew I needed to go. I dipped into my fun money account, booked the trip and haven’t looked back.
This retreat has been a special event for so many reasons: it’s my first time away since having Henry 7 months ago, and Julie, the woman who owns this house, was my first client when I moved to London. Cue lots of emotions for me this weekend.
I’m soaking it all in and taking a break before the holidays come at us all at full force and I hope that you’re doing the same.
we’ve got you covered
You do what? This week I had the pleasure of interviewing a financial therapist. What’s a financial therapist? I had no idea. But she walked me through this new profession and gave me a little test to see what money hangups I have. I, shockingly, am a money avoider. Don’t miss this read — a financial therapist talks common money hangups, her best money habits, and how she manages it all.
Could it all be in your head? Did you know that there are money scrips—or money mindsets—that can influence how much money you make and how much wealth you create? Yes, those little voices in your head can be part of the reason you are, or aren’t, living the lifestyle of your dreams. Here are the detrimental money scripts, and a way to change them.

We’re ok. Considering therapy? Not sure what to expect, or how to afford it? Buzzfeed breaks down this form of self-care with the beginner’s guide to therapy and everything you need to know about therapy.
I wanna be a billionaire so freaking bad. This guy spent 5 years studying the habits of self-made millionaires. He found that are split into two categories: risk takers and savers. While being a risk taker may be an exciting journey to riches, he found that savers have a specific money mindset that got them to their millionaire status. Here are 7 of their top strategies. #6 is a tough one (personally) but I think it’s pretty safe to say I definitely succeeded with #7.
Don’t let the holidays stress out your bank account. Because we all know that happens every year. Stretch that holiday budget with my tips on The Everymom.

because life is about more than money
From teenager to seniorager. I want to join this group.“Just because we’re retired, just because the kids are gone, doesn’t mean you have to sit in a rocking chair and wait to die.” Amen, sister.
