It has been a busy past week or past few weeks I should say! Really, the month of May is just always really busy for us. There’s Mother’s Day, my birthday, my husband’s birthday, and this year we’re tacking on a move in the next few weeks. This was my first Mother’s Day and Birthday away from home, which was a little sad to be honest, but was still very special thanks to my sweet husband.
If you follow my Instagram you probably saw my post on Mother’s Day and how I got to spend it not only away from my family but away from my husband too! Ugh it was such a bummer. If you didn’t see the post, what basically happened was my husband (Drew) had to help out with the Special Olympics that was being held on base that weekend. He couldn’t come visit me at ALL. Out of all the weekends it had to be THIS one too. But things like this happen and it’s the sacrifice you make when you or your spouse is in the military. And instead of letting it ruin your day you just need to focus on what is good. And that good was my sweet little loves. The reason I was celebrating that day in the first place. Being a mama. I sure did reflect on that, and how thankful I was to be a mother and I soaked every bit of it in… playing, laughing, snuggling, loving on them. Drew really did feel terrible that he couldn’t come see me during that day, though he did still surprise me with some pretty pink roses and lilies in the mail and said “I tried to pick some almost as beautiful as you, but nothing compared.” Yeah that made the day a lot better. ;)
A few days later I turned 22! ♥ And yeah my husband did play Taylor Swift’s “22” for me haha!
I’ll be taking in these last few weeks we have here in Biloxi. I feel like we literally just got here!… and I guess we kind of did, ha! It was a sweet opportunity getting to live so close to the gulf. I think this city will always hold a place in my heart being our first home away from our home state (And where Emmett started walking!). I am so excited to move to our first base though! And the fact I get to live with my husband again (OMG) AMAZING. I can’t believe we haven’t lived together in 6 months… that’s just crazy to me! Him getting to visit here and spend some weekends has helped tremendously though.
Enjoying the hot humid weather ;) and starting the packing process tomorrow! Wish me luck :)
