Pinch me! I came across this photo of our goal board and it’s such a good reminder of where we were just over 5 years ago.

We were married and living in my parents basement, dreaming of our future. Every year I write down goals and pin them to a board, and I must say, it works! If you haven’t done this, I highly recommend!
