Live for a Sunny Day Instead of Saving for a Rainy One #MySunnyDay

The majority of us work so hard only to save for a rainy day. You know, those unexpected expenses that can really put a damper on your plans if you don't have the money to cover them. The problem is, that saving for a rainy day can be darn near depressing. Saving and saving with no concrete goal in mind, it sometimes makes you feel like you are working for nothing. Living for a sunny day however is so much more fun and motivating. Saving for a special event or goal can totally change your perspective on saving money as a whole. SunTrust Bank understands this, and want to help get everyone motivated towards living for their sunny day.

The Most Important Part of Road Trip Preparation #TireSafetyFirst

It's no secret that the boys and I love to take road trips. Just last summer I drove them over 14,000 miles across the Northwest United States. This year, we are headed out on a 90 day road trip to finish up the last of the 48 contiguous states. There are a lot of checklists I go through before departing on a road trip whether it is a short weekend drive or a long trek across many states. There is one thing though, that gets much more attention than the rest, and that I consider to be the most important part of road trip preparation, and that is a tire safety check. My boys are my world, and there is no way that I would head out on the road in a vehicle that had unsafe tires.
