2011 is gone...

Obviously this is a late post, considering we're well in 2012 now. But I feel like it needs to be acknowledged.


What a year it was.

It was challenging on so many levels. We were challenged and tested, and I'm proud to say we came out on the other side stronger.

2011... I sent the love of my life off to war for the 1st time. I'm sad to say that its probably not going to be the last. This is the picture a took when I came home the night he left. It was freezing out there on the flight line. I have never felt so much pride and sadness at the same time. He was so unbelievably strong and I was a total mess.

But we made it through 7 months. He went 7 months without a day off and without a decent meal or shower. And then he came back to me.

And it was wonderful. He is more than my husband. He is truly my best friend in the whole, wide world. And I truly felt like I was missing half of myself each and every day he was gone.

But we got through it and I think we now have a deeper love, trust, and understanding of each other.

2011 kicked our asses that's for sure, but we came out on top.

Here's to a great 2012...

We can't wait to see what it has in store for us....
