I can't believe that another week and month have come and gone. Last weekend I had a great time with my wife and friends as we headed up to one of their lake houses and got to go have a great time relaxing. And it didn't hurt that we got to go on their boat.
Unfortunately it's really spurred me on to look for property, a house, and a boat. But now just isn't the right time for those. Although my wife and I have started browsing for houses and will probably be looking to buy between October 2013 and February 2014. I can't believe that as I'm writing it because 2014 will be here before we know it. It'll be nice to have a place of our own instead of renting so we can do with the house as we please. Eventually we'll get some property as well but that will be on hold.
I just want to thank everyone that mentioned Passive Income Pursuit this past week. I really appreciate it and couldn't grow the blog or spread the word about DIY dividend growth investing with your help.
Now on to the links. Please excuse the long list this week but there's a few articles that I felt needed to be included even though they were posted last week.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and can enjoy some great weather and great time with family or friends. As for me, I don't have much planned because I'm most likely going to get called back out for work over the weekend or early next week so I'll just be playing it by ear.
