Life as an Army Wife

Sorry I haven't posted this week. Trying to spend as much time as I could with Mr. Army Man.
The real task of my "Life as an Army Wife" begins today.

I dropped my husband off today for his "business trip." It will be a long 9 months but nothing that we can't handle.

"Distance between two hearts is not an obstacle, rather a beautiful reminder of just how strong true love can be.."

I believe in the above quote to no end. And in this one.. "Distance makes the heart grow fonder.."

Everyone says "how do you army/military wives do it, how do you spend so much time away from one another?" or "I wouldn't be able to handle that."

It isn't about being able to handle something.. It's about loving and supporting someone throughout anything and no matter what. If you say you 'I dos,' that's what you commit to. If you can do it when he's around, you can do it when he's away too. Your husbands all go on business trips. Well so does mine, it's just for long periods instead of just for a couple of days. I love and support my husband no matter what he does. He has the other half of my heart, and he will hold it forever.

Today, we didn't say our good-byes. We just said our "see ya later's..."
I dropped him off this morning around 4:00 am. And I've made it so far without crying. (I'll let you know how that goes.)

Up until this point my blog hasn't talked much about our "military life" but in the upcoming months be looking forward to seeing more of it. I will still have my day-to-day regular posts about what's going on, but look forward to seeing what a real Army wife life is about. Hope you will keep reading, but if not this blog is for me and the journal of our life. (Just saying.)

I'll leave you with some picture from this morning. BTW I had make-up on but my face is all red, because it was 24 degrees and freezing! Hope y'all have had a great weekend! I'll be posting more on our weekend later!
