Roses: A Surprise Visit







Wow, it has been awhile since I posted.  We had a Surprise visit from Tim( that's him in the middle of the two other men) this weekend!  I actually knew that he may make it home for the weekend, which gave me time to finally get the house in order.  We had a lot of fun, especially Saturday night.  We went to see our friends' Irish band, Aran perform.  Ethan was the star performer out on the dance floor.  I wish I had pictures.  It was too cute. 
 
  It was difficult for Tim to leave Ethan, but we will travel to see him over Easter.:)  For some reason, I have been particularly lonely the past few months.  I usually handle these situations better as I think Tim has been away more than home the past two years.  At least he is not in the desert and I really don't know how families survive not seeing each other for so long, PLUS knowing your husband is in danger everyday.  I feel very blessed that at least we see each other occasionally.  AND he has a cottage right on the beach so I am looking forward to a mini vacation over Easter break.:)

I am so behind on blogging and FINALLY finished up two pieces today.  I  had fun working on these.  I have a few more in the works and I really will be posting on etsy soon.:)  I finally, FINALLY have my little creative nook finished and I can't believe how productive I have been with such little precious time to work.:)  Of course, I wish I could have more hours in the day like most of us, but for now I am thankful for the little precious times I can create.

Hello Amy
Firstly, so pleased you have had some time with Tim. I'm so sorry you have been feeling lonely.
Great that you have more time with him over Easter. He looks very handsome in his uniform ;-)
Your work, as always, is an inspiration.
There is a little package winging it's way over the pond to you x

I am so happy that you all were able to spend some time with Tim and that you are making plans to go and visit him too. I know how tough it is for you all to be apart so that makes the visits even more special. And of course I love your new pieces and can't wait to see everything when it is on Etsy!!

Awh..you put things in perspective for me. I was whining a little the other day about my dh being away more than he's been home since the beginning of the year, and here you are talking about two years! I'm glad you had time together and what a wonderful thing to look forward to in just a few short weeks. I hope the pretty spring-like weather is lifting your spirits!
