Life via the camera!

I know it’s been a while since my last blog post but things have been crazy at my end with ice storms, snow and get this, we had an earthquake! In the span of a week! Yes it’s been crazy in Georgia and the whole town shut down due to it. Very depressing for me as I do not like to stay in lol. Anyway, I thought I’d share some pictures from the past week!

Love these sunsets on base 🙂

My Ipsy subscription package finally arrived! It was almost lost in the mail as it took forever to get delivered but it finally made it to my house. Love the stuff that this website sends me. Even the cover they send it in is pink 😀

The backyard view of a gloomy day here. This weather is all sorts of confused. It cannot seem to make up its mind on what season it is.

So it’s been a while…but my soldier is finally home!

Hello to all of you that know me and if you just happened to stumble across my little blog here, then Welcome 🙂 It has been a good couple of months since my last post and I blame my procrastination for it 😉 and moving back to the US and some travelling here and there.

Well the good news about moving back to the US is that my husband is finally home from his very long deployment in the Middle East. It really felt like forever, and I am so thankful that he’s back home safe. The deployment ceremony was short and sweet and since it was my first one, it was definitely exciting. “Families, greet your soldiers!” were the last words said by a Colonel addressing the soldiers and their families, in which everyone ran to find theirs. Let me tell you, it’s one of the best feelings in the world and truly something I shall never forget. I am definitely one happy wife.

Waiting for them to arrive!
