Just be.



I have started writing this post and deleted it three times already now. I've been waiting to post this since Tuesday of this past week. I waited for today to happen first. Today meant seeing our church family since we found out. What am I talking about you ask? Idaho. I'm talking about Idaho. The Air Force and God have decided to move us to Idaho come May.

Yes, Idaho.

My emotions have been up and down since finding out on Tuesday. I've cried, laughed and freaked out. Idaho? Why Lord, Idaho? Why, now? Our 'family' here has been amazing. We love where we are, we love the people which surround us and we are apart of a loving community now. I don't want to make new friends and find a new church. I'm happy where we are at. 

I feel the need to stomp my feet like a 2 year old and say, "Don't wanna, don't wanna, I DON'T WANNA!" Why do we feel the need to act like immature toddlers when times get tough? I don't know. I waited to type this today because this morning needed to happen first. Everyone at church expressed how sad they were to see us go so soon. There were emotions at church today that needed to happen in my life. People, sad to see us go and express their emotions toward it. Feeling these was needed and necessary. It was hard, but so needed. I love the family Christ has put around us here. He has helped us get so involved with our church, it is going to be very hard to pull away in May.

My good friend Becky has helped me 'deal' with emotions. We went to our favorite shopping locations and perused through the aisles to find things that reflect our feelings. Enjoy.

Sometimes a fun rolling suitcase is all you need to get you going.

A cute pair of shoes too.

I needed to see this that day. Almost bought it too.

Crazy fun friends are just what you need during tough times in your life.

It's all just apart of the journey we are on together.

Just Be.

A little over four months left in Las Vegas!

I might need to make this my motto.

Love is Jesus. Jesus showed me the love of my husband. Thank you.

My most favorite place in the world.
Thank you Jesus for the friends and family you have put in our life.

Blog Break.

So my blog and myself separated over the Holidays. We took a little break from each other for some down time. Needless to say it was much needed. The hub's and I flew to Seattle for our Christmas together. This was our first Christmas with actual family! It was wonderful. We enjoyed being with our family very much and can't wait to do it again next year.
So realizing my honey and I didn't take any photo's together now, but we did have fun going places and doing lots of things. Ice skating was wonderful.
Yes I am pretty dorky. But overall pretty fun. :)
We went to Leavenworth in WA and got some yummy German food and chocolate. Made my honey extra happy.


We watched the kids sled. And I almost fell umpteenth times. But the fact is, I DIDN'T fall.

Christmas was fun and my sisters and cousin all got money in their gifts. All in $2 dollar bills! Genius! I should have taken so many more photos, but to be honest I really just wanted to enjoy them, family. Since we rarely get to visit them. It is the best decision I ever made.




Ahh, Pike Place Market. If I could go there every day, I would. The smells, the people and the culture. I miss it so much. So happy we were able to go visit some of our favorite places with our favorite people while we were up in Seattle.

Hope everyone had a blessed holiday season this year, we sure did. I would share photos from New Years with you, but there aren't any because we fell asleep at 11:40pm. Yup, slept through the New Year and I am completely OK with that. 
 Peace, Love and Joy to all of you,
