see you soon

Adam is in Vegas for a week so I’ve had plenty of time to myself, which is a great thing. When he’s away, I have the ability to prove to myself how independent I truly am. I have always known that I’m pretty independent, but I don’t always have the chance to exercise my independence? If that makes any sense. I guess I default to letting Adam handle a lot of things and him being away has allowed me to rely on myself a little more.

Adam’s having such a great time and I am so happy he is, he deserves it more than anyone. I must admit though that selfishly, I am ready for him to be home. I like my alone time and I’m good at being by myself, but after a few days I am more than ready to not feel so alone.

My mom, sister and nephew came to visit me this weekend and that helped, but when they left I had a moment of sheer sadness and really felt that loneliness. Usually when my family leaves, Adam is there to cheer me up and make me feel better. This time I had the dogs and, well, they just aren’t as good at getting the job done.

Oh gosh, I read over those last few paragraphs and I know. I KNOW. It’s ridiculous. So many people go without their significant others for far longer and in far scarier circumstances and I am just being silly. Even still, I am quite ready for my Adam to be home and to recreate that moment above from when he returned from a trip last year. Thankfully, that moment will be here sooner than later.

See you soon, my love.

    My husband JUST got back from a week in dallas, and the same thoughts were running through my head. After a week I was dying to see him again. I do not know how military wives do it, they are so strong!

  • I really don’t know how they do it either. They are unbelievably strong! I’m your hubby arrived home safe and sound!

    For me, this scenario is a perfect case of ‘the grass is always greener’. With a husband who works from home, and a 5 year old girl, I rarely get time to myself at home. I crave some ‘alone time’, and miss the days of coming home from work and having time to defrag for a while – ALONE. :)

    My husband goes away only several times a year for a few days at a time, and I anticipate those days so much……….then when they come, I’m bored, lonely, and rolling around like a pea in a can.

  • Yes! I can’t wait to have kids, but I can only imagine how much alone time I will crave once I do. I’m used to having a lot of alone time these days. I guess I should soak it up while I can!

    I was looking forward to having some alone time, and it was great the first few days, but I am definitely ready for him to come home now.

  • That title and photo goes so well together :)
    And your post makes me smile… Because you have THAT kind of love!
    You lucky girl


  • Gorgeous picture I hope when he gets home you have another beautiful moment just like that one.

  • Sweet words. Thank you!

  • We did! Well, first we had to deal with navigating airport traffic and getting so a place where we could park. Then we had that beautiful moment. :) So happy to have him home!
