[Life] OMG KLP! Where have you been?


Life is crazy hard right now. And I've been trying not to completely abandon y'all. But I've totally been failing over the last few weeks.

As most of you know, I'm a proud military wife. My super hero hubby is amazing. I adore his commitment. I love his courage. He is incredibly brave. He deployed last week and it sucks.


We've survived a handful of deployments and moved state to state all while raising two of the cutest minions ever.

And although this definitely isn't our first military separation----it's going to be our longest and could be the toughest to date. You see, our minions are at an age when they can actually understand where Daddy is---and that's not at home. At the end of the day, no matter how hard things get for them, I'm immensely proud that I have the opportunity to teach them what sacrifice and honor means and I'm even prouder that their father is the embodiment of this lesson.

In a few weeks, once the newness of the situation wears off, I think that things will be easier. For now---my focus is on making our transition has smooth as possible.

For SavingOurStrands, all this means is that when I can pop in---I will. I'll share all the details of my fabulous mini chop (OMG---I'm soooooo in llllloooovvvveeeee with it!), my new hair regimen and of course, I'll read all of your #washdayexperiences (they're my faves!).

You guys are the world's most fabulous readers, I'm amazed by your Grace and your support is always crazy overwhelming.Thanks for being awesome!

Un mil besitos!
KLP

    1. I'm really hard on myself sometimes because I know what I am capable of. What I'm trying to remind myself of daily is that I'm on a learning curve---yes I can handle it---but it will take time to get accustomed to the changes.

  6. Awww! This is such a cute picture of you guys! We love our military and what they do to keep us safe here. I will keep you in my prayers. It was really tough for us when my brother went to Iraq, but prayers really helped. I admire your courage.

    1. I constantly remind myself that tough times are refinery moments. They hurt like heck but they allow me to purge all that I don't need and focus on the important things (because that's literally ALL that I have time and energy for) LOL.
