We started our lives in New York but moved to San Francisco. Jorge and I had big dreams in San Franscisco. He was going to run his own Architectural Engineering business. We would live in a big two or three story home with a fancy garage and a mini-van filled with children. We were on our way to achieving our dreams when the housing market collapsed. We lost our business, then our home.
Jorge is working for another Architectural firm while I am a stay-at-home mother and housewife. Together we are raising three children in a small apartment. Some days, we just get by.
We fondly think back to our childhood; how things seemed so simple back then. “Yep, we think, we can do this. But, nothing is ever as easy as it looks…”
