Living life in San Diego

Our Home in Kingsville, Texas

Our Home in Kingsville, Texas

As many of you may know. We are now living in San Diego, CA. It has been such an amazing transition from Texas to California as far as the wheather goes and just being able to do more things. Kingsville, TX was a super small town that didn’t really have much to offer. However, the three years that we lived there my husband and I grew very close to each other making our marriage grow into what it is, today. Those 3 years were amazing, we were able to have him home with us every single day, we welcomed our two boys into this world. Kingsville was a great town for us to bond and work on US. Texas will always hold a special place in my heart for that. 

Now, that we are in San Diego. Reality of military life has hit hard in our home.  Hubby has already gone on a 13 day underway and now is gone for a few months with a forecast of more months ahead. I know that it’s really hard for us right now because   for the last 3 years we had him home with us. Now the times have changed and sadness has hit me hard. I know, I will be fine and learn to coupe with it, but for now I do get depressed and it is hard. I know that GOD has big plans for us and our family and thats what keeps me going. I am keeping busy with our three munchkins. I am still not done unpacking, so that’s still in the works. As well as a DIY Outdoor Pallet Couch. In which I am super excited to share with you all. If you have an Instagram be sure to follow me at @sewfatty. I will be posting updates.

A little update on my life.

Life is a bit busy these days. My little munchkins keep me on my toes. Adryana is doing great in school, she’s such a great sister to Ashton and little Edward. Seriously some days I’m not sure what I’d do without her, growing up to be a beautiful young lady inside and out. Ashton is getting so big, he talks a lot and has full sentences – even conversations sometimes. Little Edward he is just a little bundle of joy, that I wake up to every morning. His smile just brightens up my day. My hubby such a hard worker, cooks for me (weekends and on his days off), always finds a way to please me. I can’t thank GOD enough for giving me such a loving husband. 

We are getting ready to move back to San Diego, California. Our shore duty, here in Texas is coming to an end and back to sea duty.  It took some adjusting initially, being so used to “city”. This town has grown on all of us. Texas will always have a special place in my heart. It’s where my boys were born and where my marriage was rebuilt. I can’t thank GOD enough for all he has given us.

It’s a bittersweet time for me. I’m excited to move back to California, because we will be back in the city and we will be closer to my family but with all that comes deployments and that’s the bitter part. The last time we went through a deployment, it was only Adryana and I. I did my very best to remind her of daddy, she was so young at the time, so it wasn’t as bad as it was for me. This time around though, is different because they know who daddy is and when he is gone and when he is supposed to be home. As soon as he is home they run to him, or if they know he is leaving somewhere they kiss him goodbye. So I feel that this time around, will be tough. I just pray that GOD gives me the strength to do this again. I my hubby’s voice and pictures present so that they don’t forget how he sounds or looks. So I’m planning something to help with that. Which ill post later…

For now – this is whats going on in my life. Many mixed feelings and changes but with all that I know GOD is in the middle of it all and we will be GOOD.

 

What are you going through, in your life ?

We finally got orders.. Were moving !!

So happy to announce that we are officially moving back to San Diego, CA. We just got news of this yesterday and I just couldn’t hold it in. This is a bittersweet time for me, because though I am super excited to be closer to my family my brother is currently in San Diego. My heart also hurts for the fact that I know what awaits us. Which is deployments, since we’ve been on shore duty (meaning he doesn’t deploy) hubs has been with us every night. I have forgotten what it’s like to not have him around. So to experice that again, not only with one child but with three now, is just so scary and my heart hurts just thinking about it. I know this is what we signed up to do, it’s just becoming more of a reality again and experienceing these feelings. The last time he was on a deployment Adry was young and though, she knew her daddy she didn’t have a close bond with him, because he was gone most of the time.

This time around we’ve added two more to the mix and by the time we get back they will be old enough to know that daddy won’t be home. I’m just asking God for strength since I know it’s not going to be easy. I am excited to go back to a city and state that we love. We were both born and raised in So Cal and our first duty station was San Diego. I’m also excited about being closer to my parents whom will be my greatest support system. We’ve prayed a lot about our ‘next’ duty station. I asked GOD to take us whenever he thought, we would keep on growing in his word and just where he thought we belonged. So I’m trusting this is where we are meant to be. We will know the official date soon so as of right now were only assuming, will move anytime from feb-April. More to come soon…
