Happy Thoughts:


Life After Deployment

It's been quite some time since I have blogged anything. I feel like I'm just so busy all the time with jewelry, hubby, and the puppy, that I never have time for it. I've really been missing it & the always beautiful Mrs. S inspired me to write this morning!

As of yesterday the Sailor has been home for 2 whole months... the time has really flown by! I never shared our homecoming pictures because we were so busy (get your minds out of the gutter!) here's my absolute favorite though...

It took foreverrrrr to find him in the huge crowd, and when I finally did, I couldn't get to him because there were a group of sailors in the way. I wanted to SCREAM at them! I was patient though, & it was so worth it.

It was definitely an amazing day, just like I had always heard, and I am so happy to have him home safe, even if it's for a very short while.

Tomorrow is his birthday & it's the first time ever that we've spent it together. You never realize how much you can learn to cherish when you live this life. I'm so used to Happy Birthday emails, but for the first time this year he was actually home on my birthday too. Our Birthdays are a week apart so it's even easier for him to miss both.

He's amazing though! I got handpicked cupcakes,

pink Gerber daisies

 this beautiful vintage bracelet

& a bubble bath full of rose petals, but we won't do  pictures of that...

Now I have to figure out how to top that for his Bday. He's been working really hard, so I'm thinking just a relxaing day at home & maybe breakfast in bed!  He's always SO hard to shop for!

Hopefully I'll find a moment soon to blog again, but if I don't know that I love all my bloggy friends and even if I don't have time to comment I do still read your great posts!

  7. Hello, your blog is really amazing! I am a sailor's girlfriend and I decided to make a blog too. I will be really happy if you visit it and if I can keep in contact with you. I would like to meet other sailors' girlfriends and share together. :) This is link for my site: http://mylifeasasailorsgirlfriend.blogspot.bg/
