Last year Pictures in Japan

Well I officially made it back in Ohio for 6 days
I'm leaving in a couple hours to head to the Cleveland Airport then I'm off to South Dakota! I can't stand being in Ohio any longer people. This place is a perfect example of the color brown or gray. My sister in law is having a baby boy at any minute basically. Thankfully she's cooked him an extra couple days for Aunt Kelly to be there. I will be posting from South Dakota within the week so stay tuned. 

I am very happy that I am traveling out North West. I will see my niece and nephew(s) eee!! but also I'm going to have this outlet away from thinking about Jimmy being gone and missing him tons. The past couples days have been a mess. I slept until 5pm today because there was just no point in getting up to think about all of this. I am happy with my life (just in case you thought I was sad sally) I am just really missing him.
 It's weird how things are when we are apart...they just don't feel right ya know? I've got this little emptiness going on I just need to distract me. any ideas on how?

I found my old camera that had lots of photo's on it.
There were even pictures from last year in Japan. Brought tears to my eyes when I thought about everything that is going on and of course seeing the pictures of Jimmy didn't help me.
 View from flight line toward Fuji
 Hey handsome :)
 View from our house looking at the Zama-Shi area.
 Down our driveway/street when they were doing construction.
 Walking to the store by our house.
 Neighbors across the street.
 Neighbors around the corner.
 The temple by our house. I love this place. I go to read here.
 At the temple.
 Full view of the Temple, you can see the dragon fountain & mini bridge where the koi fish are swimming under.
 During the rainy spring season. I love this time in Japan.
 I'm in heaven at this point with these flowers.
 soo pretty. I need to edit them and make them brighter.
 Street going to work that always smells weird.
 I hope this will be me a Jimmy. Old and in love.hehe
 The Cherry Blossoms...okay NOW I'm in heaven. They are beautiful
That's my baby cheesing real hard.ha I'm crying right now as I look at this. Boy oh Boy, this military life sometimes stinks but its worth it in the end.

Please continue to pray for the Japanese people and also for the relief crews. The thoughts of what is going on has still not left my mind. I'm starting to realize I need to attempt to not think about it because it makes my chest thumpy. I'm glad I posted that prayer on my left side bar because it reminds me that he loves me and is trained to do these missions. When we will see each other again? Who knows but things will be okay.

  1. I use to spend every summer in good ole brunswick, ohio which is about 25 miles south of cleveland
    you are 100% on when you say its the perfect example of grey or brown. I hope you get out of there safely and quickly...

    The pictures are beautiful..I'm sorry they make you sad though :(

  2. I know it is hard to be away from your special Guy. When my husband joined, he was away for 3 years, 2 of them in Okinawa. In the 3 years he has been back, he has been on 2 deployments, one of them when our son was just 11 days old. I find solace in the fact that he is working hard for our country. That is what gets me through everything. My husband told me the other day that he would give a lot to be able to go help the Japanese people. I hope knowing that your special one is doing what thousands of other Military members wish they were doing helps.

  3. I live in Ohio too and I can't stand it ! But I love my family :) and don't wanna leave em' so I'm stuck!

    Have a safe trip!

  4. Amanda I appreciate your words. I am so thankful for this life. I am so proud of my love and I think you are right. Finding my peace in knowing hes trained to do this and is helping people is what I need to do and will be doing from here out. Thank you for that, it made me think clearly.
