Rhode Island Bound

eeeeeeeeek! this day is finally here. I am on my way to LAX to fly across the country. {blah, a full day of travel alone is never really fun}



I can't believe Scott has been gone for almost 18 weeks. The last time I saw him was in February. We had very limited communication for the 9 of the last 12 weeks he has been gone. There were days where I was so ready for this all to be over. There were days were I felt so disconnected from Scott. I had to remind myself that in the end it was all going to be worth it.

I can't find the words to describe how excited I am about getting to see my husband, kiss his face, hold his hand and just with him. People often ask how you deal with being away from your husband for so long when you are a military spouse. Honestly, the amazing feeling of the reunion is what gets me through it. The excitement of getting to run into his arms again and love on him is what I think about when I get sad or overwhelmed with it all.

This girl is so dang excited to see her man!

Girl, I am SOO excited for you! I'm one of the ones who doesn't know how you military wives do it. I tell my sister that all the time. So crazy excited for you to get to see him! I hope that you two have an amazing time together. Thinking of you today and praying for safe travels!

Safe travels! I'm sure you're going to have an awesome time. I can't even image how tough it must be to have a military life, but on the positive side, you get to live and see many different places and that's so cool!
