Haley’s adoption adoption day! I was so proud to have her join our family! Family means NO ONE gets left behind.
Saying goodbye to Seth for my deployment. This was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I know he still misses me, even if he’s had to push that feeling down deep, and pretend he doesn’t. I miss him too.
One of my earliest pictures with Aiden. He’s taking a bite of a pork rib on one of our camping trips. We’re still very much alike. I understand he’s pretty good at making ribs himself now. I hope one day we can share ribs again (but not like this!).
Enjoying a few last moments with Haley before deployment overseas. She’s still daddy’s little girl.
Haley’s 10th birthday. I’ve missed so many of her birthday’s since this one, but I’m glad I won’t have to miss any more.
Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my new blog! This is just an introductory post so I’ll keep it short and sweet.
I’m starting this blog because my therapist suggested I keep a journal to record my thoughts and feelings. Unfortunately, my handwriting is terrible and I can’t keep track of a notebook to save my life. So I thought that a blog might be a good way to overcome those obstacles. I can’t promise that this space will be witty, or informative, or even thought-provoking. This is primarily for my own benefit. Should you care to and dare to read any of this stuff, you might get a glimpse into my mind and an insight into my life. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Over the next few months I plan to be writing and sharing about my experiences and all the crap that goes on in my head. The last two years of my life have been both devastating and exhilarating, often at the same time. I’ve been through the terrible break-up of a long relationship that I could write a book about. I’ve also entered into a wonderful relationship that I could write a completely different book about. I have three children that I haven’t seen or spoken to in two years, and I miss very much. I often think about how much they would enjoy the things I have been doing, and how much I would enjoy having them with me.
That’s it for now! If you’d like to be kept updated with my posts “Like” this post or subscribe to my blog.
