Mike and I are off to St. Louis tomorrow to visit his family and we couldn't be more excited. We haven't seen his parents, his brother, our sister-in-law or our nephew in many, many months so we're looking forward to spending some quality time with them. It will serve as a much-needed break too!
That being said, it's been a tough week. There are lots of things that Mike and I want to do this year with our life, big dreams we have together, but in recent days those things have seemed out of reach. Without going into detail, a lot of it is beyond our control so it's felt like one big exercise in patience.
To add to the drama, I've been walking around doing the whole "woe is me" thing too, but then this morning I came across this phrase on Keepin' It Thrifty and *bam!* -- what a great perspective! The more I read it, the better I feel.
Here's hoping if you're struggling in some way or having a rough week, it brings you happiness too!
