Air Force Family Day

Yesterday was family day for my uncle, and it was so neat to see what he does and to tour the Air Force base. I'm so proud of him and all he's done to serve our country. He's made a career in the military, and will be retiring at the end of this year. My mom's side of the family was all there, and it's always nice to see everyone since we don't all live super close by. The weather called for rain, but it turned out to be a nice day, with great company. What a gift to live in America where we have so many people willing to fight for our freedom.

life is all about the journey

Life lately has been insanely crazy, emotional, and just plain hectic. This little piece of the internet is my place to share what I want, when I want, and how I want. I started blogging when my husband was preparing for deployment, and it was a way for him to to still feel somewhat at home while he was thousands of miles away. Although he's been home for nearly a year, there are some big life changes coming our way and I miss connecting with others in similar situations.

Big life changes are coming, but I'm looking forward to them. If you follow me on IG, you know that my husband and I bought road bikes a few weeks ago. I've been wanting to get bikes for a while, and since I've been having some major soreness in my left knee, running just isn't as enjoyable anymore (I'll save that for another post). I'm not the fastest, and sure I've taken some nice falls, but it's a learning process…just like this thing we're all going through called life.

Biking has turned into something my husband and I do together everyday after work and I love it. It has has taught me so many things, and has been extremely therapeutic to just get out and go riding. If there's one thing biking has taught me, it's to just keep going. The journey of getting to where you're going is only half the fun- the experiences along the way are what make it worth it. Not everyone is going to understand it, or agree with it, but my response to that is you worry about you and let me worry about me
