Counting Down

I wonder how many more times I’ll be using the Doing Time app to count down until I get to see Danny again.

He hasn’t even been gone for a week yet and it’s super lame.

It’s definitely better than deployment though.

And hopefully he’ll get to come home once on leave.

I’m working on staying positive and busy.


here we go again

Today Danny must report for training with the Marine Corps.

Four months.

At least it’s not a deployment and at least it’s not for over seven months.

I don’t want to wish the summer away but I sure hope this goes by quickly.


Guest Bloggers


Anyone who follows me – are you interested in guest blogging for me?

I thought it would be a great way to discover new blogs through each other.
Or maybe I haven’t discovered your blog and you’re following me either on WordPress or BlogLovin or whatever else.

If you’re interested just shoot me an email
Just make sure you put “guest blog” in the subject.

I’ll look at what you’re interested in sharing and we can work something out.
I would like to have photographers, crafters, book reviews, military relationships/life – basically anything.

I think it’s a great way to discover new things and blogs!

sharing photos

Just thought I’d share a few photos.  Danny was a part of the sword detail at his friend’s wedding last month. I’ve never seen him decked out in his dress blues-but boy is he a cutie. ImageImage

And I just absolutely adore this picture below





It was a great weekend; the wedding was a lot of fun and it was a nice little road trip together.
