penny for your thoughts

Sometimes I can't believe I'm a military wife. To be honest, I didn't know much about the military life before getting married. Bits and pieces, yes, but never the full extent of what it is actually like. Since arriving, Matthew and I have gone 1-2 weeks, a month and even 2 months without seeing each other. We spent a total of 5 visits together before we even got married! Shocking, I know. But it's true what they say…when you find the one, you just know. 

It has and will always be an adjustment I think. You get used to it, but it never gets easier…does that make sense? The amazing part about it is that our bond is STRONG. Communication is key, people! It also helps that I'm a bit of an introvert (okay, a lot) and alone time doesn't bother me all that much. I use it as my time to recharge so that I can be the best wife, friend, and daughter I can be!

On that note, about to make some healthy and DELICIOUS banana ice cream. Wedding countdown is on!

  1. Communication is definitely what it's all about, ESPECIALLY when you're a military wife. It's really good that you enjoy alone time (me too!) and use it to better yourself. You go, girlfriend! :)
