6 months ago today

Exactly 6 months ago today I was getting ready to go to the airport and experience one of the most exciting moments of my life :)

Seeing my husband again after a 12 month deployment with the Army National Guard.

I can hardly believe how quickly these last 6 months have flown past! I feel like time is finally moving again, as opposed to dragging on endlessly for ages.

Since my last post, Adam stopped working as a truck driver and is now employed with a communications company installing cable- he's home every night and gets weekdays off (like me) so we get more time together! Also he'll actually have a chance to go to the VA and get all of his issues taken care of (potential TBI, joint problems, & PTSD).

So many things have happened in the last 6 months, but I'm grateful that we are all (mostly) healthy, employed, and together! And we're loving this California sunshine! It makes my life so much more enjoyable to be in this climate- going on 2 years now and still loving every minute! We've already been to SF several times, so cal, and also checking out local state parks. Considering all that's been going on, we've enjoyed a lot of travel around this beautiful state and it's been wonderful!

Of course life is not without it's struggles, as I've learned it takes a lot more than an awesome homecoming to recover from a deployment. Slowly but surely, we're getting there!

Anyway, Happy Easter to everyone! Hope it was great for you all :)
