One day at a time...

Two weeks have passed since Jordan left and I feel like it has flown by. It's been a whirlwind of emotion and everyday that passes I feel a little stronger and more confident. I've been extremely busy at work and with friends as well. Even though Jordan isn''t here I am trying to make my life as full as possible. So far I have been extremely successful. Through this I'm determined to thrive, not merely survive. I took my first trip to Santa Barbara this past weekend and it was amazing. Later this month I will be going with friends to Santa Monica and will also visit friends stationed at 29 Palms. I'm taking a class next weekend where I'll learn to make chocolate truffles. This weekend I'm painting a few rooms in our house and hiking at Torrey Pines Nature Reserve. I experienced my first earthquake this week as well. It was minor but scary just the same. I hope to fill my life with wonderful experiences during these seven months and support my husband the best I can from so far away. We've been fortunate and have been able to speak every couple of nights through the web cam. Being able to see him and hear his voice keeps me going. It reminds me that I still have a best friend out there and that he'll be back soon. I'm looking foward to so much with him. We have plans for things we want to do when he gets back and I'm making a list of places I want to take him. Out of all those things though, what I want most is to hold my husbands hand or give him a hug. Its amazing and beautiful how the little things become such big things.

Beautiful Santa Barbara:
