Sometimes it just sucks

I know I'll get through it. I have amazing friends, awesome freaking inlaws, and my own stubborn streak that'll get me through anything!!! This deployment WILL end. In less than a month, it'll be halfway over.

But you know what sucks?

Moments like right now. Where I can scarcely breathe. Where it feels as though my LUNGS miss Matt, and don't want to work without his gentle touch. I will survive. I am breathing. And I'm not crying, either. I'm continuing to count my blessings and thank God every single day for the permanent and fleeting gifts that I have seen and encountered.

But man, I wish time would go by quickly DURING it. Yes, it's wonderful that when I can look back on it, I'll go, "Oh my! It seems so long as the time but it really flew!!!" Yea. Not so much right now!!!

I miss you, Matty. You're my Duders, my lurver, my everything ♥

PS. I got inked last night :)

Holy Moly

My husband is beyond amazing. This man, no matter what my image of myself is, always thinks I'm beautiful. Always manages to make me FEEL beautiful on my horrible "fat" days and everything!

This past week, Kimberly Burke ( took some amazing photos. Most for Matt's eyes only, but this head shot I just had to let her post.

I'm in awe.

That's ME! The beautiful me that my husband sees me as every time he looks at me. And she captured it!!!

Thank you, Kim (and Chelsie for wonderful makeup!!!). You have no idea how much this means to me to have captured how he makes me feel and made it real ♥
