Where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday I was walking down the aisle to become Mrs. Robert Sharpe! While our first year has been challenging as many of you who have been reading and following my blog know, Robert and I have found a way to overcome these challenges and become closer and stronger!! I really believe these challenges forced us to rely and each other and fight together to beat them one at a time. We still faces many challenges and many of the challenges we have faced over the year we are still dealing with (housing is an example) — we now know that with the guidance of God, our love for each other and our sheer desire to overcome we will together as a team beat all of these challenges.
Our first challenge as a married couple was facing a honeymoon with very little money, I believe I put this in an earlier post! WELL….last week to celebrate our first anniversary Robert treated me to a honeymoon do-over! We went back to where we had our honeymoon and we re-lived our experiences. We had a great time just like we had when we went down a year ago, but this time we didn’t have to stress over how much money we could spend on each meal and if spending $10.00 on this or that would cause us to run short of money to get home. While, of course, we didn’t have tons of money (which we all dream of having), we were able to go to Fort Meyers with more than $200!! I have to say getting away and traveling down to Fort Meyers did a lot for the stress we have been faced with over the past year!
Now, we are tackling the biggest challenge we have had yet – our housing and living situation. We have narrowed down our search to a few homes and we have an idea of exactly what we want, THANK the LORD but now we have to fully decide which house we want and work on getting the financing completed, to which we are currently working on. I can’t wait to be able to share with everyone the news we get in regards to this and to share our journey even more when it comes to getting our house. I know it is coming and coming soon, it is now our of our hands and in the Hand of the Lord. Robert and I have turned this situation over to God and we are believing that HE will work all the details out in our favor.
Here are a few pictures from our honeymoon re-do!
