Hello all :) I admit to not having been active on here for almost a year! --- eek!
I am a Stay at home---Work from home---Photographer mommy :) My hubby just left for a 6 month deployment so I have taken time off from working to stay home with our 2 littles ---
3 yr old daughterand 1.5 yr old son
We are pretty well off financially --- when I keep myself in check! We bring in a good salary and then are able to supplement it even more with my business. We are set with savings and the only debt we have is our mortgages. We own two homes and rent one to cover expenses.
My goals are to
Set up better retirement contributions
Be faithful in tithing
Only spend what is allocated for that category
* I am working on getting the house "decorated" and put together. We moved in a year ago and I still have unpacked boxes!
