My wife and I flew in to Nashville to see some friends of ours and man the change in weather alone is worth the trip. Instead of 95+ with 90% humidity we're looking at some mid-80's temperatures. Perfect weather to be outside. I'm not really sure what all is in store for our time here but I know it's going to be awesome. One thing I'm definitely looking forward to is the fireworks display on July 4th. Back to the future right? It's ranked the 2nd best in the nation and I can't wait to see it. Other than that it's going to be relaxing and doing whatever we feel like doing. Enjoy the time with family and friends this holiday weekend.
I didn't make any purchases this past week, although it was a holiday shortened week. I came close to making a few buys but we got some good jobs report numbers and a much better mood from Mr. Market which quickly shot some companies away from my buy zones. Oh well, eventually there will be other opportunities to add to great companies. I did recently add to my position in both Procter & Gamble (Full Analysis Here) and Deere & Company which you can read about here if you're interested. The really exciting thing was getting to tally up all of the dividends I received in June though. I passed the $600 mark for the first time which was awesome. It's amazing to see the dividends growth month after month.
Thanks to everyone that stopped by, commented, or shared posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit this past week. I've got one other thing to share with all of you because I definitely couldn't have done this without you. This past week I crossed the 500k pageview mark. It's amazing to look back at the growth in the pageviews and how they grow almost month after month. So thanks again to all of you.
