Our dearest friends came all the way down to say goodbye to us today and spend a day at the beach. 21 years of friendship with some of them and we know no matter the distance we will always be part of each others stories. For those that made it today we felt loved by you and are so grateful. . . #momlife #fitmom #longhairdontcare #nurse #workingmom #keepingitreal #reallife #busymom #momboss #transformed #learningtolovemyself #progressnotperfection #nurselife #bossbabe #fitnessjourney #justbeingme #militarywife #militarymom #survivingmilitarylife #beyondfearliesfreedom #honestmotherhood #inbeautyandchaos #livebeautifully #diamondsfromashes #thrivewhereistand #beautyfromashes #restored #walkinginmylane

Words can’t do justice to the feelings i have today. Today marks the end of a chapter in our story. Today the uniform gets folded up. Today i witnessed his fellow sailors express words of deep gratitude for the impact he’s had on their lives. Today i watched my kids jump for joy as they celebrated the end of a countdown they’ve had on their minds for weeks. Today marks the beginning of a new season. A new journey unfolds and i would not want to embark on it with anyone else. It’s been an honor to walk the calling of service alongside him (even though i did it with a poor attitude some days). These years both nearly destroyed us and also healed us in the deepest ways. This man is the epitome of loyal and brave. And he very willingly posed so i could snap a “last day” picture. LCDR STATES...i cannot think of words powerful enough to express how proud i am of you. I love you baby . . #momlife #fitmom #longhairdontcare #nurse #workingmom #keepingitreal #reallife #busymom #momboss #transformed #learningtolovemyself #progressnotperfection #nurselife #bossbabe #fitnessjourney #justbeingme #militarywife #militarymom #survivingmilitarylife #beyondfearliesfreedom #honestmotherhood #inbeautyandchaos #livebeautifully #diamondsfromashes #thrivewhereistand #beautyfromashes #restored #walkinginmylane

Today’s workout “Friday fight” and let me tell you how fitting that is! Some days it’s a fight with my mind to keep going...to push through...to show up cuz I’m tired or I’m feeling lazy or I’m just not in the mood. What if our actions were purely based on how we FEEL and not what we KNOW?? I don’t know about you but I’d get nothing done and I’d eat ice cream and nachos all day long....but if i behave based on what i KNOW i achieve balance....i pursue growth....i embrace change! What’s your fight today?? Exhaustion? Depression? Fear? Anxiety? FIGHT HARD!!!!! You can! I believe in you! . . #momlife #fitmom #longhairdontcare #nurse #workingmom #keepingitreal #reallife #busymom #momboss #transformed #learningtolovemyself #progressnotperfection #nurselife #bossbabe #fitnessjourney #justbeingme #militarywife #militarymom #survivingmilitarylife #beyondfearliesfreedom #honestmotherhood #inbeautyandchaos #livebeautifully #diamondsfromashes #thrivewhereistand #beautyfromashes #restored #walkinginmylane

Well so far it’s been three days in a row of goodbyes. I’d be lying if i said I’m not starting to feel a tiny bit numb and over it all. Dreaming of what life will look like when I’m no longer “in transition”. Mixed emotions. Heightened emotions. This week is big for us. Family farewell. Friends farewell. And I’m just three days my husband puts on that uniform for the last time. I’ve been waiting for that day for a while and still I’m grieving it at the same time. A wise friend once told me that grief isn’t bad. Grief is neutral. It’s a reaction of any kind of change whether good or bad. Grief is a process. It’s healthy. It’s normal. It’s where i am now. Grief and so much excitement....they are coexisting today . . #momlife #fitmom #longhairdontcare #nurse #workingmom #keepingitreal #reallife #busymom #momboss #transformed #learningtolovemyself #progressnotperfection #nurselife #bossbabe #fitnessjourney #justbeingme #militarywife #militarymom #survivingmilitarylife #beyondfearliesfreedom #honestmotherhood #inbeautyandchaos #livebeautifully #diamondsfromashes #thrivewhereistand #beautyfromashes #restored #walkinginmylane

GRATEFUL!!!! Completely full both heart and tummy. So overwhelmed by the community we have that steps up when we need...bringing meals, loaning us items to get us through the next two weeks. This is community....this is the hands and feet of Jesus...this is what i hope to find again in a few months. . . Also...this was delicious!!!!
