Celebrating "Me" Time

Recently, with everything that’s been going on, I’ve spent a lot of time alone. And to my surprise; I absolutely love it.

Not only do I love it.... I NEED it. It's become a necessity in my life to preserve my sanity for as long as possible. And who knows how long that'll last....

I make plans to hang out with myself. and often. 

May sound creepy and lame, but it's totally not. 

Catching up on books, experimenting in the kitchen, re-decorating.... All are best when done alone.
I've found that left to my own devices, I can come up with some kick-ass ideas/creations/meals. 

Which, coincidentally, works out well for me seeing as I'm married to a marine. There's definitely going to be a lot more alone time in my future.  

Ironically, back in the day spending time alone was not a positive. It was dreaded and normally caused me some level of anxiety over what I was possibly missing out on. 

Not sure what changed specifically, but that girl is looooooooooonnggg gone. Just me, myself, and I.

Granted, there is this little guy to keep me company.....

Until next time!

Life Update in Photos

Happy Saturday!

As of late, I've been pretty busy and unfortunately neglecting my barely-established-blog.
My bad.

Needless to say, theres a lot to catch up on in terms of my life and the recent events going on within it. Luckily, I was smart enough to not let my photography lag (point for me!)

And as they would probably explain better, and much quicker than anything I could ramble out, I'll let my photos speak for themselves and hopefully bring everyone up to speed.

Enjoy :)

Abandonment Denial

Well, this is awkward. 

I have been MIA for the past uhhh… three months…ish... but I’d like to just avoid the obvious abandonment and get back to posting regularly (well... Semi-regularly... give or take...)

It has officially been a month and a half since my man left for his first deployment, and although I miss him every single day, I can say that most of the advice I received is right: it does get easier


It also doesn’t hurt that I live in one of the most stunning and active places ever. Who could really stay sad with views like this right around the corner?

Point Loma, you sure are a sight

LP! She came to visit me!

Since my main squeeze left me to save the world, I figured it was time to put myself out there. You know, get involved, stay busy, yada yada.... and as it turns out, there is some truth to it. I have absolutely no idea where the past month or so went. 

And good riddance---let's keep on keepin' on!

Anyways, back to my point: With all this ambition to socialize the crap out of myself, I started taking zumba classes with coworkers a couple times a week (he's going to love all the new moves I've learned, too...whoops, did I say that?); I started attending weekly LifeGroup meetings with an amazing group of women from my church; and I even reached out and got involved with some of the marine wives from his new Regiment team. 

So, that is where I've been and why my blogging has been lagging so immensely. Sooooorrrrryyyyyy. I'd like to say it won't happen again, but, LIFE HAPPENS :)

I also failed to mention that I have completely slacked off on some all of the mundane tasks he asked me to get done while he was away. Sorry I'm not sorry about that....Those suckers are just gonna have to wait!

Side note: I often have daydreams or even visions, if you will, of when Mr. C and I are reunited once again... let's just say its going to be better than this:


and even this:


Yes that is a bold statement, but I have faith.

Until next time!
