It has been a few months since my last blog post. I know, I know. Where is the passion?!? Being self-employed and having my other half in a war-zone (Afghanistan) has been a bit difficult and worrisome recently. Money has been short and has not allowed me to buy beautiful new stones and materials to make new jewelry pieces. It makes me sad. Yet, I need to set my priorities straight...I have been dedicating my days to working out and eating healthier. It is a completely new lifestyle, although I do admit that I have been sneaking in a few cookies here and there every once in a while.
My boyfriend Martin left to Afghanistan back in March. He was finally granted his R&R for August to come home for two weeks. Seeing the love of my life in person after so many months was so beautiful :) We went to the beach, pool, movie theater...I cooked for him and he cooked for me. We arent perfect. We have our arguments, just like any other couple. And we had one while he was here. Then we spent four days out of his 15 here not speaking to each other. It was horrible. But we got over our pride and talked it over. It is our determination to make things work that lets me know and reassures me that we will have a great marriage (when he comes back :))
He left again back to Afghanistan yesterday. Very sad. But I think that it gets easier each time he leaves.
