Happy Veterans Day

To say life has been busy lately is an understatement.  I guess being crazy busy is better than the alternative of being lonely and just watching the days pass by slowly.  

I've been super busy visiting family in Tennessee, photo shoots, editing photo shoots, working at the hospital, taking care of my little toddler, and making time to talk to my husband whenever the opportunity arrises.  

Its sad, but the only days I really want to get myself presentable are skype days.  I love seeing my soldier's face on the computer screen.  I treat as kind of our once a week date.  

Today is a skype day: )

Saying "good bye" to Caleb over skype one afternoon

Today is also 11/11/11 - Veterans Day.  

A day set aside to reflect on our safety and freedom and the men and women who serve our country to provide that safety and freedom.  

I have a lot to blog about, but today I only want to use this post to honor the past, present, and future of our US military and their families.  

I'm especially proud of my husband.  He sacrifices months away from his growing daughter to live in the desert and work 72 hours a week.  

I'm also proud of myself for making it halfway through our first deployment without going too crazy!  

Be sure to show appreciation to the people of this country who sacrifice time with their loved ones and stare war in the face so you don't have to!


  1. I will never know what your life is like as a military family, and can't pretend to empathize, but I am so grateful for you. : ) Congratulations on halfway through deployment and being such a wonderful mommy for your sweet girl- hang in there!!
