My Adventure in Japan!

A few posts back I wrote about the adventure I had in Japan while my husband was deployed. I thought it was about time to share some of the many pictures we took. I spent two nights in Tokyo before I flew to see my husband. I will admit, I NEVER left the hotel room… Continue reading My Adventure in Japan!

I Kicked Deployments’ Butt!

Well here we are, another deployment has come and gone. This six-month deployment went a lot quicker than I thought it would. Nonetheless, it was still tough but I can officially say I have completed two deployments with my husband but hopefully, it will be our last. At the beginning of the deployment, I was… Continue reading I Kicked Deployments’ Butt!


Coffee Bar; Start to Finish!

One of my projects that I wanted to accomplish while my husband was away was a coffee bar for our house. My first step was to clean up the original piece. I picked the cart up from a curb alert down the road from my house. I cleaned it up and then it was on to… Continue reading Coffee Bar; Start to Finish!

Its almost time!

Guess what? It's almost time for my love to return! We still have a good amount of time to go, but it is crunch time! My husband will finally be coming home. It does not seem like it is possible. Knowing he is returning home so soon puts so many emotions into the air. It… Continue reading Its almost time!


Ohhh! We’re Halfway There!!

Finally, we have made it half way! I couldn't be happier. Being able to see him has helped me get through this distance away. It was great getting to visit him overseas while getting to explore a new territory to us. We got to visit places we never thought we would be able to. It… Continue reading Ohhh! We’re Halfway There!!

We got officially engaged on December 26, 2015 just a few days after he returned home from a deployment. We married just six short days later on January 1st. It was… Continue reading Marriage; One Year as Husband & Wife

Some days have been easier than others, but majority… Continue reading 2 Months Down- Still Seems Like Forever To Go

We’re One Month Down!

So far, I have made it a little over a month in this deployment. It has been a terrible month with lots of adjustments and watery eyes. I've had to adjust my 'norm" since my husband is gone. It has caused depression and a lot of anxiety.  I don't get to wake up next to him… Continue reading We’re One Month Down!


When he is away

When he is away I hate it. I absolutely hate it because I miss him so much, but there are some perks to it as well. When he is away, I have fewer clothes to clean. I don't have to do laundry everyday or even every other day. Instead I can get away with doing… Continue reading When he is away

Living with the person you love is not what everyone thinks it is. It's not waking up early every morning to make breakfast and eat together. Its not cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It's not a clean home and a homemade meal every night. It's fights about who has… Continue reading Marriage
