This one is special to me

I just came across Reina's giveaway, if you don't know who she is then get over to her blog and check her out because she is super sweet & she is having one heck of a giveaway right now! There are several prizes to be won but one in particular that I am dying to have. It's a 12x12 canvas print of a photo of your choice from My Fine Art and I would absolutely LOOOVE to have this one printed...

It was a very special day it was the day after Christmas believe it or not (that's Texas for you) and he flew in the night before and showed up on my doorstep to surprise me. I was still living in Texas at the time and he had already been stationed in VA. I was so sad because I thought he wouldn't be there & having him show up was the most amazing gift ever. He showed up with roses, gifts, and poems he had written for me. He stayed for an entire week and it was absolutely amazing, I had never had anyone do something like for me before. He told EVERYONE he was coming my boss knew, my parents knew, everyone but me, I don't know how they managed to keep it a secret. I remember Christmas day I was leaving work and I was so sad, my boss asked me what was wrong and I told him I missed my husband and I wished he was there, all he said was "Miracles Happen on Christmas." Later that night I was sitting in my room working on our scrapbook adding a Christmas page even though we weren't together, and he called me. he started reading me a poem & my dog started barking, then someone knocked on my door and I got scared. I opened and I was so shocked I just started crying and I couldn't even speak! I hugged him for what felt like forever, and made sure he knew he was the best thing that ever happened to me.

So this is one of my favorite photos it's very special to me & always makes me smile. I would LOVE to have it printed and hanging in our home so that anytime I am down It would be right there reminding me of the happiness he has brought to my life.


I literally feel like I'm waking up from a dream. This weekend was the dream, and now that he's gone I'm back to reality. We had an amazing weekend together. We celebrated the day we met by going out to dinner and a movie with our favorite couple. We spent time laying in bed watching Netflix, we conserved water several times, we were lazy and ordered out two nights in a row, & then we spent the rest of the time just holding each other & being silly. I even managed to get a couple of pictures right before he left. I drove him to the ship and the whole way I was trying to take my time getting him there. This is the first time I actually went all the way to the ship with him & it was SOOOO hard to let him go. I did not want to turn around and walk back to that car. The whole way home I cried like a baby & then when I got home I could not fall asleep for anything. I'm not sure why this time is so hard on me, I mean since I've moved here he's been gone most of the time. I guess we just had such a great time it didn't feel real walking away from him.

I am very thankful though for all the people who have purchased jewelry from me, really it is helping so much to keep my mind off of things. I'm hoping for many more orders to come just for that purpose. I'm even thinking of having another sale just to try and bring in more orders. I'm doing my best to stay positive during the next couple months by keeping myself busy, and surrounded by people who know what I'm going through. I have some awesome giveaways coming up on my blog, I've had some great stuff donated for them. I also am going to try to start a workout routine to pass even more time. I was lucky this morning I got a phone call it was only about 3 minutes but but he said everything I needed to hear which helped me to get out of bed this morning & actually do something with my day instead of just laying around missing him. Give me a few days and I promise I won't be so down, that;s how my routine goes every time, it just doesn't usually hit me quite this hard.
