Are you ready? Lets give this a try...

This is us, the Mr. and Mrs.
Happily Married as of September 5, 2010
unhappily separated due to Operation New Dawn, shortly there after!

It's not your typical Happily Ever After...yet at least. Our Happily Ever After has been temporarily put on hold while Mr. goes and fights the bad guys.  Yes that's right Mr. will be taking them apart one at a time, a helicopter that is. Mr. will be supporting an infantry unit overseas, but he will be safely residing on post, fixing helicopters..whew! (or so we're told)

he knows the ins and outs of this bad guy..he's so handy!

 It's not the ideal situation for a husband and wife to be separated their first year of marriage but it happens to those of us in the military family and its just going to make us stronger!

 As Mr. and I prepare for his upcoming deployment and then as it begins, I'll have thoughts..lots of thoughts.  I'm starting this blog as an outlet.  my photography will make frequent appearances here, so be on the look out for that as well! Anyway, I thought this might be a good place to give updates on Mr. while he is away from so many loved ones, and something fun for myself as well.

Thanks for stopping by :)

"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you..."
Luke 12: 27-28


  1. I hope you enjoy the blogging as much as I do! Good luck with it :) And I hope the two of you are reunited soon!

  2. Love you Collie! Praying for you both!

  3. Girl you are so strong because you have God on your side and He will clothe you and strengthen you more than those lilies :) I love you soo much and I'm praying for you!
