Etsy has been super busy, compared the past year, and you have to work pretty hard at it to make it work for you. I would love for you to visit and look around my shop, click this link right HERE! When Nick graduates and goes to training for 2-3 months, I'll be able to spend hours on Etsy without thinking of making dinner or making sure our millions of clothes are washed before he gets home. I guess that's a plus to being a military wife? Sure I'll eat and have clean clothes, but on a very different time schedule.
We have EXACTLY 2 weeks until Nick's graduation. Be sure to follow my Instagram to see all the fun we are sure to have. Lots of family in town, lots of food to be eaten, graduation party decorations, and a cute sailor uniform. I just can not wait! His white uniform brings me back to when he proposed (read about that here). Love my Popeye!
Oh, did I mention that the Navy will be sending movers to pack my life away in a truck in about a month? How did this go by so fast?? I love Destin. I love the people. I love Nick's classmates. I don't want this to end. Honestly, I'm having a hard time with the fact that after the 29th, my life as I know it will change completely. My husband will be gone more than he is here. I will move my pup and I across the country to California. I will again know not one soul. And we will start the search for a home church.
I have my deepest thoughts during my workouts. Am I the only one? The teacher is prancing around showing the next insane way she wants us to do a burpee (yes, we have done them backwards...down an incline....outside) and all I can think about is how God has put me in this place at this time. He reminded me that because I have Him, I can do whatever the task is at hand. I can move across the country and make friends. I can figure out where the best grocery store and where the heck I can find sweet tea. He will not put me in a place and not equip me with what I need. I need Him. I have Him. He will never let go. God gives me courage when I meet a new lady. He gives me discernment when I'm not sure where to join a church when my husband is in training. He has supplied all my needs. I would need 2 blogs to describe all that he has blessed us with since our engagement. I have absolutely nothing to worry about.
Though I hate hate hate not knowing the exact day I'll be moving to California or where I'll be living (closetothebeach..closetothebeach..), I love knowing God is going to show up and deliver. I would be a complete nutcase if I didn't have a real God to depend on. He wants me to lean on Him. He wants me to be ok with the amount of light He has given me at this time.
I love this life and the people God has allowed us to be around. I have no doubts these friendships will last a lifetime and that there will be many more added in the next 6 months. I can't wait to start this next chapter in our story. I am so glad you are here for the ride as well!
Have a great evening!
