We are officially 80% through Husband’s deployment! (Shoutout to the Deployment Tracker App for doing the math for me!)
Now that we’re at the tail end of this deployment, it feels like the time has flown by. Everyone told me that the time would fly by, and I knew that they would be right, but it was hard to believe it in the moment. Though, I’m willing to bet that the last few weeks will feel eternal.
We’re in the home stretch!

I took a really fun inversion workshop at my yoga studio yesterday. Hand stands, head stands, forearm stands, and lots of sweat. It was awesome! The instructor leading the workshop started the afternoon by asking us to “keep your heart light” and to have fun.

One of my very good friends is a holistic executive coach. She does a 30 day group coaching program about once a quarter called Stepping into Someday. I have attended some of her other retreats and events, but this one scared me. What am I even looking for? What do I want out of this? I decided to sign up and dive into the program after Husband left on his deployment. With the next half year being spent solo, it seemed like as good a time as any to do some soul searching, to grow, and to focus on me.
In one of our calls, we got to discussing success. Specifically, how I define success in various aspects of life. My [outdated] picture of success probably looks a lot like yours… basically, being superwoman (or superman). Doing everything “expected of me” flawlessly with grace and ease (and with perfectly coifed hair, of course).Read More »
I have to be honest… I was living under a rock this weekend. A blissful, naive rock. I had my nose in a book, laying out by the pool. I did not watch the news. I did not catch all the buzz on social media.
Once I finally caught a whiff of what I’d missed, I wasn’t ready for it. Read More »
It was a sad, but wonderful, week.
I had an amazing opportunity to see Husband last weekend. This kind of thing probably almost never happens, getting the opportunity to reunite during a deployment that’s less than a year. I’m a lucky girl, and I know it. Read More »
Have you guys heard of the singer/songwriter, Khalid? He’s got a few hits that I’m totally digging right now: Young Dumb & Broke (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPfJnp1guPc) & Location (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=by3yRdlQvzs). I first learned of him when someone on a morning radio show raved about having just discovered his music. I had to agree, I instantly loved him & his music. He’s got a really chill vibe and just seems so relatable (high school Gabi totally could have related to him; who isn’t young, dumb, & broke in high school, right?). Go check him out, hopefully you like him just as much as I do.
Anyway, I was just listening to an interview he did. The interviewer started out by mentioning that he moved around a lot as a kid, ‘cause it was something they had in common. When I hear that anyone “moves around a lot” I instantly think there must be some military association. Because who else in their right mind would move every 2-4 years, amirite?!Read More »
