I'm still not sure if I should write this post...
I'm all for being transparent with you readers, and for being awkward if it's humorous at my own expense... but I never want to make it 'weird' for you. I just want you to know where we are here at the nest.
When Ben and I decided to have a family, we both agreed that having me 'stay-at-home' was desired. I could not envision having kids and then leaving them while I went out to earn a paycheck (this does not mean I judge other mothers who still desire to work outside the home!). We knew this decision would mean a sacrifice on many levels, and financially we would lose some 'perks'.
Recently, we have realised our budget is tighter than we expected.
Almost like a choke-hold.
No extra spending... at all.
Looking to cut any/every thing that's a 'frill' in our life until we can get some stable footing.
Sound familiar? I know a lot of young families struggle with this issue of finances.budgets.bills... and I'm not looking for pity.
Like I said, we chose this path: seeking to live simply. placing value on family instead of frills.
Here's my dilemma.
Our Internet is next on the chopping block now... and thus, this blog may go into hibernation.
I've never wanted to pursue advertising in this space, I don't want my posts to be dictated by other motives for 'gain'... but keep them real to what I am passionate about.
Trying to find a solution it was suggested I throw it out to you readers - to give you the option of 'partnering' in keeping this space alive.
That idea seems awkward. I'm not asking for charity. Creative ideas and beautiful blogs abound without asking anything back... I guess I just wanted to provide this opportunity to decide if you specifically want my heart.our nest as part of your daily read.
A buck or two from a hand full of friends will keep this nest hatching each month.
That's why I've added the 'donate' button on the sidebar to your right.
Sorry if this goes against 'blogger etiquette', I would love for you readers to still connect here even if you don't/can't spare some change... honestly!
Thanks for hearing my heart. I hope to keep sharing it with you here in the future.
Empty pockets, full heart,
