Our first YouTube video is LIVE!! We are so excited! (Link in bio) In this first video we chat about how we were able to afford our beautiful home nestled in the French countryside without a mortgage. We also discuss why we chose France, how we found our dream home, and the condition it was in when we first bought it. The link is in our bio! We hope you enjoy hearing about our journey so far!
We have to thank so many of you for encouraging us to start YouTube, you’ve all been so supportive and wonderful ❤️ it means the world to us so thank you!
Please let us know what you think of our first video and what you want to see next!! ☺️ ...
