      5.5 years later we just passed 2 million!

      woohoo!
      Congrats! That's some pretty solid growth, and the dollar figures will only get bigger even faster over time, especially as you keep adding to your savings. Compounding interest is a wonderful thing, as long as it's working for you.

      We crossed the $1M line back in July, so if we manage to cross $2M around 5 years from now, I'd be thrilled! But we're enjoying a long-running bull market, which has assuredly helped us both, so who knows how long that party will last. But let's enjoy it while we can!

        That's fantastic!

        You had mentioned originally that the $1 million included home equity which was about 20% of the total. How is that now? Did your investments grow a lot (probably) or your home value shoot up, or some of both?

            its about the same (~20%). investments also did quite well. i know it wont last forever though.

            the bull market definitely helped. our income went up some. I cant remember exactly how much it was then so im guessing it was in the low 200s. now its around 250.
