Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?) – Jenny Blake
Think ahead and avoid repeating the mistakes you’ve made this year. Start setting aside money to save up for the hard times, when DH is between jobs. Start being more frugal when it comes to spending and starting paying off debt more aggressively. Start being more proactive with your money. Insurance needs to be your priority – you can’t keep putting that off. Pick up more jobs whenever possible and don’t fritter away that money. Take the earned amount and put it to your target bill. Get DH in checkup and make sure he’s on board with the plan. Start prioritizing your health more – you’re going to need it! If you’re set on having a baby, you need to start tracking your basal temps and get insurance ASAP so you and DH can get in there and get checked out. Now is the time for action, not pity parties.

I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
