He's gone

I have been absent this past week because I've been trying to soak up every last moment with my love. He left for Afghanistan. He will be gone a year which I am so thankful for. The last deployment he went on was 15 months. It's going to make such a difference when 3 months of the deployment have gone by and we only have 9 months left instead of a year.

I have so many great goals that I can't wait to get started on while he's gone. Busy, busy, busy is the key. He's going to be busy staying safe. Please keep us both in your prayers.

Some things on my list of goals:
a trip to Paris (which is booked!)
furthering my education in education
write, write, write
read books
take tons of pictures

The list is still growing and I plan on recording progress of my adventures here. I love the internet for keeping track of my life so easily. I can have thoughts, pictures, videos, etc all in one place.


  1. You go girl! I am so proud of your attitude.

  2. Great plans, Nik, and can't wait to follow along. Especially that trip to Paris! Yum! Definitely keeping y'all in my prayers.

  3. I'm so sorry he's gone and wish we could come see you again. We may be in Europe (London/Paris) for our annivarsary so maybe we can meet up.

    Laurence & Leah will pray for yall every night!


  4. I didn't realize he was leaving so soon! You have a wonderful attitude. Good for you!


You are a lovely person.
