July… A new month and new beginnings

I have to confess, the past couple months have been more difficult to blog than ever and it has killed me.  I sit down to write and think I pull it together and then fail.  (Yes- fail!)  I have thought so much about this and where the roadblock is and I think I may have figured out why.  I have tried to follow rules, hold things together, put out the pleasantries that should be kept up with on a public basis and honestly- that just isn’t working for me.

Right now, in this moment, life is different than I thought it would be.  I haven’t spoken much about it and I don’t know how much I will, but since the “cat was let out of the bag” I will mention that Sam is in Germany until October.  He is so happy and proud to be a part of our military- to serve you and me and allow freedom to rock our lives!  I am so very proud of him.  His departure from our family happened pretty quickly- we were apart for three weeks, were able to go to Florida for a week, then he headed out.  So, all in all, he has been gone for most of May and all of June.  (The two months when blogging has been TERRIBLE for me!)  I know- it’s totally uncool and way out of tune with where I want to be, so I decided that I would just talk about it, be real and move forward.

I don’t know for sure where that will leave me and I seriously hope that my blogging will get better now that I have this off my chest.  I love blogging, I love more to talk with you- to know who you are that is out there and reading.  To know that I am not alone and talking to myself.  I thank you, appreciate you and will try very hard to change the lack of blogging.  I have so much to say!  I blog in my head every day… now to just get it in type and tell you those awesome, amazing and wonderful stories…  I’m working on it, my friends- I’m working on it.

I wanted to share a few of my favorites from some of the times that Sam has been gone.  These were taken on Mother’s Day.  You might have seen some of them before, but I wanted to share these since they were my favorites.  Please enjoy!
