Delaying The Dream

Life isn't easy.

We've all heard it and I'm sure most of you out there have experienced rough patches before.  Last week we were dealt some not so great news that is going to delay our house hunt.  At first I was crushed.  I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I was frustrated and attempted to stay strong when all I wanted to do was curl into a ball and cry.  

So I did.  I let it all out and when I was done it was time to come up with a new plan. 

This experience reminds me of a time not so long ago.  Right after our engagement, we realized in order to have the wedding that we wanted it would take longer to save up.  25 months later we had the wedding of our dreams and proved to ourselves that with a plan and determination we could achieve our goals.

It may take a little longer, but with this new plan in place we will be far better off in the future.  Thankfully this plan should (if my calculations are correct) take a much shorter amount of time than our very long engagement.

No one ever said it would be easy, but we will make it work.
