Life is a-changin'!

I know it's been a while since I updated but we have been super busy lately! First things first: Mike's deployment to Afghanistan has been cancelled! This is excellent news and I am ecstatic!! He is disappointed because he was really looking forward to deploying again and having an income again but there are definitely worse things in life than finding out he won't be in a war zone! :) About two months ago we had reserved a weekend at a cabin in the Shanendoah Mountains as our "last getaway before deployment". So even though it really was not our last weekend together, we went anyway and had an incredible time! It was up this huuuuge mountain deep in the woods with no cable or internet, no cell reception, nothing! It was so quiet and peaceful and all the leaves had started changing colors.

It was super cute with a loft upstairs with a bed, a nice kitchen and a fireplace. The first night we went to a little family pizza shop and got it to go, went home and watched a movie and just hung out. With all the hustle and bustle of his deployment and my terrible work schedule, we really don't get to just hang out anymore. It was wonderful. The next morning we drove about an hour away and went horse back riding on this awesome farm. Mike's horse was ginormous!!

Horseback riding was really long and we went back to take a nap and then went back in to town (way too much driving that weekend. Took about an hour to get anywhere.) and we got Chinese food to go! Again, just went home and watched two movies and hung out. Overall it was an awesome weekend with just the two of us, not talking on our phones and dealing with other stuff that awaited us at home. We need to have get-aways more often!!

Still have more to update but I will do that later... stay tuned :)

  1. Yayy update! Love the pics. :) I think my little family might make an escape up there at some point to enjoy the solitude as well.
