    Unplugging In The Texas Hill Country River Region + Ask Shannah

    · Millennial Money

    Unplugging is not something we do well in our warp-speed these days - but we should. In fact, there are scientific studies that suggest that being able to truly relax and rest has been shown to boost productivity, increase creativity, and reduce the long-term risks of potentially fatal ailments. So we decided to do just that - unplug a bit, reconnect, increase our creativity, and visit a place that many haven't even heard of - Texas Hill Country River Region. On This Podcast Episode:Sometimes we all need to escape the hustle and bustle of our daily lives to find a place where the pace is not so frantic, the locals are a lot friendlier, and the beauty of nature envelopes your soul with a warm Earth Day-esque hug.My co-host, Jeff Game, discuss how unplugging vacations can be one of the best investments you can make (not only as a couple but also in helping us get back in touch with what matters most in life).We recently decided to leave our city slicker lives behind for a few days, unplug and explore the quintessential Americana Texas Hill Country River Region, located in Uvalde County. And, it kind of ruled!As we hopped in our rental car for the hour and a half drive from San Antonio to Texas Hill Country River Region, cranked up our Willie Nelson playlist and could already feel the stress fall away along the roadside.Links Mentioned:Visit UvaldeFrio RiverFrio Bat FlightElk Creek StablesCowboy StorytellerLeakey Bear’s DenThanks for Tuning In:Thanks for tuning in to listen to this episode of Millennial Money.

    · Millennial Money

    Everyone wants to be smart with their money, and yet, it's hard sometimes to figure out what money moves we should actually be making.

    The Valentine's Day Escape Plan

    · Millennial Money

    We all know that Valentine’s Day is a made up, Hallmark holiday that forces us to spend more money than we intended or should spend. It’s also a holiday that says this one day a year you have to be in love, and of course, spend more money. So not true! On This Podcast Episode:Valentine’s Day is the third largest consumer holiday of the year, as we spend over $19 Billion in the name of Cupid. The average person will spend $143.56 for their Valentine.Instead of spending money on stuff you or your Valentine may or may not use (probably not), spend your hard-earned cash on an escape plan and getaway for love. This is a great plan whether you’re in love or not. Travel this Valentine’s Day!My co-host for this podcast episode is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that's always on the hunt for a good story to tell. Links Mentioned:Hotel Tonight DealsTravel Zoo DealsJucy RV RentalsCheap O Air DealsSongs:“No One’s Gonna Love You” - Band of Horses“Somebody to Love” - Valerie JuneThanks for Tuning In:Thanks for tuning in to listen to this episode of Millennial Money.

    When we think about the "American Dream" buying a home is certainly a core element. At least that's what I've been told.
