WE DID IT.
WE PAID OFF ALL OUR STUDENT LOANS.
I have been talking about
our (mostly mine) student loans on this blog since I started paying them four years ago. This post is still one of my favorites that I ever wrote, because it’s still so true, especially now that the loans are paid off and I really can see how much Valpo was worth it.
We snapped this picture last night, moments after we hit “submit” on our final payment together.
The joy could not be more real!
Because I’m a total nerd, I set up our camera to capture the moment on film since it’s not every day you complete the biggest goal of your life (thus far).
I’ve had so many friends congratulate me today and then vent about student loans of their own. All I can say is that one day, you’ll get to this day. Just keep chipping them off one-by-one and slowly but surely they will get smaller and smaller until you can hit “submit” on your final loan payment and the champagne cork blasts up to your ceiling too.
