Everyone says they want to retire young.

But what is it really like?

We retired last year at ages 42 and 38.   Our kids are 5 and 2 (twins)

So what is it really like to retire early?

A link to the Cons Story is a few slides ahead

Pro 1: We do not miss having a boss. Enough said.

Pro 2:  We do not miss being in meetings all day, but nothing getting done.
