Major goal achieved: The house is mine!

Thursday, June 25, 2009

It really is true that home buying is one of the hardest and most stressful things you will go through. As a single parent, it felt even more difficult. From barely a soul around to help pack, to hardly a shoulder to lean on when the bank got rough...

IT SUCKED. But I persevered and followed through. Meanwhile and unfortunately I abandoned you guys, AGAIN. In fact, in September of last year is when I became consumed with the online house hunting process. (hey, if you need any advice, I consider myself a pro now!)

But paybacks for disapearing again are rough and I gained a whopping 12 pounds throughout the process. I lost my way through the wayward road of STRESS- and while I may have been eating clean or not, my portions were off the charts, and .... my health took a serious backseat to the entire homebuying process. Yep, it was that bad.

Now I'm back and ready to help, grow and reset myself and hopefully gain your friendships back.

I so appreciate all the hard work and efforts you all put into the Clean Eating and Hey Beautiful team. I'm terribly impressed and happy that it shows you really can do it on your own! :)

Clearly, new leaders shall step in to join our growing circles. It's just the right thing to do. Be ready and do email me if you think you want to join the leadership circle.

Thanks again. It's good to be home to spark and to finally acheive that American dream. Best of all, thank goodness it's over and I can move on!

Here's a snap of our little beach house's back yard. (yay)

Love you!

    Good to hear from you... again. Let me just say WOW! 1st of all - congratulations! 2nd of all - our paths are freakily similar this past year! I, too, have a.) fallen off the Spark Wagon b.) let portions get out of control and c.) gained 12 pounds. I'm back too, so welcome back to both of us! (Missed you!)
