EXPLORE: Saving Money for Ireland

I’m not really sure how it happened but my best friend and I decided to go to Ireland next year! We had such an amazing time in Iceland together that we just sort of started talking about going to Ireland and now we are making it happen. We both started savings accounts in late May specifically for the trip. Read how I am squirreling away money for my trip! I will be updating this post regularly to stay on track with my goal. I hope it inspires you to do the same and chase your dreams, too.
