(He's) Leaving on a Jetplane

Sigh. I found out yesterday that the boy will be leaving soon for 6 months of training. Bummer. We expected training to be in February, not September. Also, we expected it to be local and not across the country. It looks like most of fall, as well as all of winter and spring will be spent alone. I'm taking my time with this one, trying not to freak out. This isn't the first time we've spent apart but it still hurts.

For now I'm trying to take it day by day and find some time for us to be alone before he leaves. With a crazy and often unpredictable work schedule this is no easy task.

Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July!

How yummy do these look? If I’m lucky maybe I can snag some of the above at the BBQ today!

But cupcakes or no cupcakes the best part are always the fireworks! They are calling for rain tonight so I’m hoping the firework viewing will still be clear.
