Friday's Letters

I've decided I'm going to measure this deployment in terms of 'weeks. Looking at the number of days is just far too overwhelming and it would take forever to countdown to a month. So 'weeks' it is! And what better way to celebrate crossing off another week than by linking up with Ashley for 'Friday's Letters'.

DEAR FRIDAY, you took a little too long to get here. Let's work on that and try & make it a little quicker next week. DEAR HUSBAND, knowing that you are in better living conditions than we expected makes me so happy, but no worries that does not mean fewer care packages! DEAR FAMILY, with all of this Skype time I think I've gotten to "see" and talk to you more than when we were in Georgia. I LOVE IT! DEAR FRIENDS, Your support and words of encouragement mean so much. I was so overwhelmed to hear from all of you and knowing we are in your hearts and minds is a blessing! RC and I are so grateful. DEAR GERMANY, invest in air conditioners. Sure 80+ degree weather is nothing after living in Charleston, SC, but not having AC is a whole 'nother story! Blah.
DEAR MOMAX, you are so similar to IKEA and only 15 minutes down the road... I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship. DEAR HUSBAND, you're cute and I miss you. That is all. :)


  1. Stopping by from Friday's Letters

    I can't imagine being without my husband for that long. Thank you both for that sacrifice.

    That is crazy they have no A/C! I would be one grumpy wifey! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  6. i LOVE that quote about home on your sidebar- one of my favorites! found you via the link up and am excited to follow along xo

  7. my best friend JUST finished waiting out a year deployment with her husband so I know how tough it can be - i think the idea of looking at it as 'weeks' is a very smart idea. hope you're able to talk to your guy or skype regularly! And you used to live in charleston? i used to live an hour from charleston and i LOVE that city. i miss the beach SO much!!

  8. Found your blog through Friday's letters. I am a military spouse as well, and B deployed in 2010. It is insanely hard, and at the same time absolutely makes you feel so proud of your significant other. If you ever need to talk/vent, feel free to e-mail me! New follower!
