Hello everyone! What a crazy couple of weeks it has been. The last couple of months a lot has been going on in my personal life and there have been a lot of changes in my life. I play a lot of different roles in my life, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and Army wife. The last six months of my life the Army Wife role has become my main role. Our family has been gearing up for another deployment. As a deployment survivor, I would like to say that it gets easier. However, it does not get easier to say goodbye to your best friend for the next year. For the past two months, my husband has been gone training, gearing up for his deployment. Recently, he had his last four day pass and we said our goodbyes which we like to call our "see you laters". We sat at the airport until his plane took off (a ritual of ours). I watched his son, tears streaming down his face, say goodbye to his father. He is now old enough to understand what it means when dad gets deployed and my heart broke as I watched him not want to let go of his father. As for me, I am tough and fiercely independent. As an Army Wife, I have to be. I am no stranger to my husband leaving; training, inspections, state emergency duty, schools, etc. I can't remember a time in our marriage where has not been gone for a significant part of the year at some point. He has missed more anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays than he has been there for but it's our life and I love my husband. I would not have it any other way. As I work through this and adjust, this part of my life might be getting a little less attention. I will still be crafting just might not be as much as I have in the past. I did manage to pull myself out of my deployment slump today and make my first Christmas card of the year. I absolutely LOVE the Peachy Keen Kut Outs. They are so easy to cut out and color.
My name is Megan and I love to express my creativity through scrapbooking and paper crafting. Our little family consists of my step-son and an adorable dog. My other loves include running and spending time with my family and friends. Thanks for stopping by to look at my creations!
