Pretty Pretty Pictures

My Commitment to See the Great Outdoors

So I have decided that its time for me to get back in shape, and off my butt. I love spending time in the outdoors and seeing the amazing places around where I live, but somehow lately I havent gotten out much. This posting is a commitment to share at least 1 pretty picture taken each week as a result of me getting up and moving. To start Im sharing one of my favorites that I took awhile ago, you could say my inspiration for entering into this plan.

Im so thankful that we live in such a beautiful area of the country, where a mere 45 minute drive can get us to gorgeous beaches, majestic redwoods, cultured vineyards and much much more.

I took both these pictures at Dillion beach when my husband, two friends and I went to the Sonoma coastline for a day in the sun.

A quick thought

So nothing much on the way of a full on post today. It was a long day and my youngest sister turned 18... geez when did they all grow up? :) Since today was a gorgeous day here in Cali, we spent all day lounging at the river and bbqing on the beach, as silly as it sounds laying in the sun all day really takes it out of you.

Well really I just wanted to come on here and share this song, I heard it on the radio today and decided this site needs some good pick me up music.

Coping with Life

So I thought that I was used to the navy life, Danny joined last October and we were apart on and off for months at a time. I was beginning to get used to things that way, flying out to Virginia, or driving to Florida and seeing him, living in different states for a month or two at a time. Actually the whole thing was more like long vacations sprinkled with a month or so apart from each other.

Overall things were good, somewhat unsettling at times but we got to see new places and experience different things. Then comes his deployment... and its way different. He only left about a month ago or so, but it just feels different. I know I have been apart from him longer than this, however it seems like things are dragging on, and knowing the next time we can be face to face is such a long stretch away makes things feel so much more distant.

Luckily he is not in the army, or marines or something where he has NO access to phone or computers, so I am holding on, but this is way harder than I could have imagined.

Wish me luck :) I have a good 6+ months left.
