At least we're moving forward!

For Now

One day in the future, I will take large wads of cash and enjoy a Treat Yo Self day when I spend whatever I want on whatever I want.

 

Today, though, is not that day. Tomorrow isn’t either.

Chris and I are digging out- of debt, of clutter, of weight gain, of apathy.  It’s time to get to work one shovel full at a time.  (I’m certain that some days will be one spoonful at a time.)  There are probably issues that we have yet to focus on, and surely we will uncover more junk as we strip away the layers.  There are a million little steps ahead of us, and we get to do it together.

I am very excited for the journey ahead.  There is so much to be thankful for, to be aware of, and to rejoice in.  This blog will chronicle some of the exciting (or mundane) changes we make as we work to makeover our finances, our diets, and our lives.

My goal for all of this is that God gets the glory and that people learn from our experience…  And that we’re still standing at the end.

  1. I love you to the moon. God will help you every step of the way! 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing, Emily. We are digging right now, too. Turns out getting a PhD and then paying it off is really freaking hard work! As for the clutter, my mom is a professional organizer. You may want to “like” her page It’s About Time Organizing. You can also send her messages there to ask for free advice. Enjoy your journey!!

    • Thanks, Jacey, for the idea. I do follow her page, but I haven’t looked at it too closely… I think it’s something worth doing! Love you.

  3. lovely! and amen!! my 1st step of a million: i’m looking for a raw foods/juice fast buddy for a week.

  4. Bon chance! Let me know if I/we can help with budgeting – Spencer’s a wiz at that. The other stuff I’m probably not helpful for, except maybe the apathy. Cuz I’m already excited to read your blog!

    • You are so sweet to be excited! I love you lots and may ask for some budgeting tips once we start to sort through that. Thanks.
