An Anxious Heart: Battling “What If” & “If Only” Mentalities

An Anxious Heart: Battling “What If” & “If Only” Mentalities

Up to this point, I've talked a lot about Kevin's deployment, how it's affected me, and some things I've done to deal with him being gone. One thing I haven't really talked to you guys about is the amount of anxiety that comes when he's gone. The first time I really noticed it was last year when he deployed for a short (compared to this time) 2 months to Germany.

Well, we've made it through March! For me, April has always been a sign of change and looking forward to whats to come. Spring weather is hopefully here to stay, school will be coming to an end for many, and fun summer vacations are near. This year is really no different for me. The end of March marks one month and some change until Kevin comes home and we can put this deployment behind us.

Q&A With Kevin: One Year of Marriage

Q&A With Kevin: One Year of Marriage

Hey guys! Today's post is a super special addition because today is mine and Kevin's one year anniversary! I seriously cannot believe we have been married for one whole year. It has most definitely flown by. I really wanted this post to be a little glimpse into what the first year of marriage looks like (for a military couple and otherwise). So I sent hubby some questions about his thoughts on year one of marriage and am sharing his answers in this post! Click to read more!

Deployment Month One + How to Deal

Deployment Month One + How to Deal

Hello, friends! And helloooo Friday. I hope your week hasn't felt as long as mine. While the week was long, it was a somewhat of a milestone. Month one of deployment is in the books as of Wednesday! I survived, and I kind of feel like super woman. It was most definitely the hardest month of my life having to deal with work stress and Rue (our Aussie puppy) trying to break her leg. And then there's the part where Kevin is on the other side of the planet doing dangerous work every other day. So. Much. Stress. But we made it. Today I want to share a little bit about how I'm managing, and hopefully encourage the ladies who are currently dealing with or are preparing for a deployment.

I don't know about y'all, but I have never been so happy to see Friday. This has been the longest, most difficult week that I can remember having, and I'm just really glad it's over to say the least. Between Kevin leaving and work life and being slightly under the weather, it's just been a lot. I'm one week in and have already learned a lot about what this season of life is going to be like.
