In the past 365 days I have gotten married, quit my job, lived in three states, moved a total of 5,415 miles, started a small business, lived out of a suitcase for 6 weeks straight, and pinned Wings of Gold on my husband. But by far the most challenging thing that I have dealt with has been beginning Deployment #1.
Very soon after we arrived in Hawaii my husband deployed with his squadron. Deployments are an inevitable fact of life for all military spouses. I've heard that no matter if it is your first or tenth deployment, it is not one ounce easier. Experience does not apply here! Sure, one can create goals and have a to-do list twenty miles long to keep them busy, but the tugging at the heart never seems to go away.
There are common myths and jokes about "The Deployment Curse", which I may have experienced my third week into deployment! (Thank you for fixing my brakes Firestone, even if it was for an insane only-in-Hawaii price!)
Anyway, I wanted to come back and share what has been happening in my world. In the coming months I will be re-launching Hello Harbor, moving into a new home (We are in a temporary house at the moment!), decorating our new home, visiting Japan, and soon after planning my husbands homecoming!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
