{ A piece of home }


I had intended on saving this shot until next month but I feel the need to share it now because it’s a happy shot and I have happy news! My momma will be here for Valentines day! She will fly in a couple of days prior. At least that is the plan. I am sooooooo excited. It’s been an entire year since we last saw her. Translation:  WAY. TOO. STINKIN’. LONG. It’s just how life has worked out lately so I do what I do best and roll with the punches… even if that means I miss her that much more every day. And my brothers and dad, I haven’t even seen them in a year and a half.  I miss them like crazy too. This is my longest stretch of being away from home so far in my entire 26 years. (ok, ok 26 +3 years. Couldn’t slide that past you, could I? Dang.). I do know that it’s all a part of the life we live as a military family stationed clear across the whole wide world country, but it doesn’t mean I have to like it. As a matter of fact, I detest it. It breaks my heart that my side of the family is missing out on watching our babies grow. That has to be the hardest part for sure. I am thankful for the bond they share through phone conversations on an almost daily basis. I am looking forward to just hanging out with my mom and super excited about her cooking for me.:DI always feel like I eat so well when she’s around. I am filled with healthy, fresh, Californian food. Having her here will be having a piece of home. Something I am longing for. So with this happy news I feel like celebrating and sharing this shot early. WOOHOO! My momma is coming to town!

Today’s Smiles From the Heart:

My dad and Avery talking on the phone and how happy hearing the word “Grampa” makes him.

Avery saying “Gawet Bwayden, I have something for you!” Both Garrett and I got a big giggle out of that.

Garrett Bradyn saying “She’s like so cute.” in response.

Knowing that my mommy will be here in just a couple of weeks.

Knowing that I will be in bed by 11 tonight.
