Bert’s May Dividend Income Summary

My crazy month has finally come to an end.  We entered the month in the middle of an intense housing search and left with an accepted offer.  Still can’t believe we are going to be first time homeowners!  My wife and I celebrated our one year anniversary Memorial Day Weekend as well.  The beauty of it all is that while all the noise of my personal life is rolling along, my dividend stocks are quietly doing their work in the background.  This is one of my favorite articles to write each month, where I review my monthly dividend income total, compare the results to the earlier period, and check my progress as I embark on this journey of financial freedom.   Now it is time to dive into detail.  Check out my May dividend income summary!
