Some Cheer!

After thirteen long days from home, my fiancée and daughter made the trip upstate to visit me!

I thought I was going to go crazy being away from them this long, but FINALLY some cheer was brought to my life! I ended up having today and yesterday off, so I actually got to spend TWO days (practically) with them!

It was in the upper 80’s the whole time, but we did our best to stay cool as we walked through parks and on some trails.

The most frustrating part about it was that I couldn’t have them in my hotel since we’re running a testing site and the fact that EVERYTHING (including park playgrounds) was closed. So we drove around and played outside as well as we could.

Although we couldn’t do much, feeling my daughter’s arms around my neck was JUST what I needed. Not to mention the hugs and kisses from Dylan 🥰

I’m so blessed to have a man that supports my military career and picks up the “mothering” duties while I’m away. Being a parent is HARD and I know it’s even harder when you’re doing it alone.

I hope you all had a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend, as this won’t be one that I soon forget!

A very HOT day of walking
The smile that melts my heart
My two greatest loves
Aren’t these Crocs just the cutest?!?
