10 Days

10 Days = The amount of time the pilot has been home in the past three months

8 spent in the Bahamas


bahamas 040


1 night at home eating tamales

mesa grill

1 night chilling at home and taking the puppers to the dog park


That’s pretty much it. For 3 months!

I know that’s not a lot of time in the grand scheme of things and is NOTHING compared to a deployment. It’s felt long because a lot has happened (the air broke and got fixed, I sold my car, bought a car, spent a week + a weekend in Orlando, had a couple of nervous breakdowns) and I’m excited to catch up with my buddy…

who just walked in the door :D


He’s home for good – for now :)

I have to teach bootcamp and then we’re going on a DATE. I’m so nervous, haha.




Oh yeah, here’s today’s lunch ;)


Crepes with organic peach and black cherries <3

    I was just thinking today about how I already miss my bf who lives 4 hrs away, and how it’s so hard with the distance, not seeing him often (enough) blah blah blah. Then I thought of you and how positive you are and how thinking positively, keeping busy doing activities you like, and being healthy can really keep you happy. You really are an inspiration with how you have dealt with the pilot being gone! Happy for you he’s home for a while. :-)
