A Final Post from our Florida Home

Good {late} morning, friends!

This will be last post written at our home in Florida. As I’ve said before this is such a bittersweet emotion I’m feeling. Florida will always hold a place in my heart just because it was our first ‘home’ together, and this is where our son was born. But there was also a lot of harship here. Pain and hurt feelings, struggle and financial stress. Hubby and I learned a lot about marriage these first two years. We learned how to communicate openly and honestly about things that were bothering us. We learned what one another’s expectations were. We learned how to compromise.

Maybe it’s coincidence that our Anniversary falls on the same day that Hubby’s A-School begins. Something of a significance to the beginning of another journey. April 19 marked the beginning of our journey together, and again April 19 will mark the beginning of another path we’ll travel together. Ok. Well not exactly together considering he will be on the other side of the country. But still, it’s a chapter that we’ll be writing together.

There is so much to the next four months. I’m amazed again by the timing of God’s plan and his will. Things have fallen into place more perfectly that I could have ever imagined. I couldn’t have laid things out any better than he did. Hubby got his A-School orders in February…at a time when we were really starting to feel that we had outgrown our time here in Florida. We’d had a falling out with a group of people we thought we were close to, our landlord was starting to become a pain in the rear end with his lack of professionalism and unwillingness to repair things in our home that needed repairing, and I had discovered my passion for photography.

At no other time so far in our lives could we have afforded for me to kick start a photography business. In no other situation would I be able to shadow or assist a professional photographer several days a week because I wouldn’t have had anyone to keep little man during the day.

It’s all working out. And I know that the next several months are going to be hard. I love my husband enough to hate being away from him. Really. I love him more today than I did yesterday, and a million times more than I did the day that I married him. I think that’s why we are so happy [aside from the fact that we were very much created to be together]. We just generally enjoy one another’s company. We love spending time together. The past week without Little Man here has been a wonderful time for us to reconnect with one another and to enjoy just being together without having to play the role of mommy and daddy too.

He’s so excited. Seriously. He’s like a little kid getting ready to go to a big birthday party or something. He is so unbelievably anxious to begin his journey, and I can’t wait to see where it leads him. He’s got some information about a possible future opportunity [and by future I mean, like 2011/2012ish]. Nothing that I’ll really go into because it’s so far off and so up in the air. But I have full confidence that if it’s what God wants for hubby, that it will come to be.

I’m trying to convince Hubby into doing a guest post on my blog. He’s a little iffy about it, but I’m hoping to break him down.  :) He’s pretty hard-headed about things like that, but he’s got such a unique ‘voice’ and perspective on life that I think you guys would really love to hear from him.

Alright guys. I think I’ll sign off now. I was typing this as I ate lunch, and I’ve been finished eating for 30 minutes. I’ve got to get up and get finished cleaning. I vacuumed out from under the cabinets this morning, vacuumed the baseboards & the couch cushions, and scrubbed the bathroom. My tub is clean enough to serve food out of. I literally climbed inside of it and scrubbed like a maniac with grout cleaner. Now off to wipe out my refrigerator. They are cutting everything off tomorrow, so once they pick up our cable stuff I’m going to head to the Barnes & Noble for a little while. Get some posts lined up for the rest of this week.

Hope you guys have a wonderful Monday!
