This challenge really hit home for me. I had to stay up late to scrap our family's current situation. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Journaling: So far, this period of our family’s life has been one of the most difficult we’ve encountered. The decision to live apart to fulfill our dream of moving to Seattle was not an easy one. We know it’s the right thing to do, though. People tell us we’re brave for selling the house and splitting our family up while we work towards our goal...but I see it instead as a willingness to sacrifice short-term comforts for the long-term health and happiness of our family. We’ll be together again soon enough, more appreciative than ever of our time together. We’re not waiting for someday - we’re making our dreams come true right now!
