I am not marrying my soulmate in September. I am marrying the man i want to continue discovering the future with, I can not imagine it otherwise. We have been through a lot together: two deployments to iraq, ups and downs, love and death, inspiration and funks, near and far, change and consistency, secrets and truths, quite moments and loud graces, the new and the old, frustration and clarity, long drives and quick kisses, privacy and public display. There has been much and yet there is a life time more.

Vintage brooch bouquet. Non-florals keep popping up, but this is the first design I’ve found beautiful. (Ruffled)


Rendered speechless! I have a fantastic collection that could totally work!!

O the drama…

Tonight we get to broach the topic of when the wedding shower will be. We will also have to discuss how the MONTH long fishing trip/exodus to the lower 48 will need to be cut in half, because of when the shower needs to be.

I am not a horrible wife; I have a delusional husband. With his brother’s wedding this summer, my cousins wedding, and our own wedding there is just not time for this super unnecessarily long adventure.

I’d rather see you once a month than someone else seven days a week.

Welcome to my life. I don’t know whether to smile or cry a little :)

This is so sad. I wonder what her husband thinks of all this? Did he push/support her to do it? God that is a scary thought.
I love that Captain loves me for all of me; my Italian bump of a nose, my tiny 32B(on a good day) breasts, my 26 almost 27 year old butt that is starting to see the effects of gravity, the stretch marks on my hips from becoming a woman, the lines in my face from laughing never-end-ing-ly with him, my legs with thighs that carry all my weight and now are the home of small amounts of cellulite and gigantic calves (made bigger from our walks up and down the road (aka mountain) we live on)…  It’s the body that wraps around him every night we are together he would not have it any differently.
(I should state that he would never deny that the trampy version above his hott… but he would say she is made much less attractive and undesirable because she is not real.)
O, and it looks like she is trying to substitute her breasts for swim wings… interesting way to combat drowning.

This is where I live.

This is the state I live. My home is here, my home consists of my wonderful husband and this beautiful girl:

I love how excited she gets when I walk in the door from work. A tail that can take out a whole coffee table at the mere sight of me!

This is the street we live on:

This is a day in the middle of winter at its dreary-est. This is about as bright as it gets in the winter.

This is our street on a day when I feel like I am in a storybook:

This is not our home:

Believe it or not most people who live in the almost arctic do not live in igloos. Many still use out-houses. I will spare you an image.

This is what -55 degrees in February looks like:

We broke the rule of no exposed skin for longer than 5 mins this day. It was mighty cold. No toes were lost.

This is beautiful alaska:

This is sunset in winter, when the sun gets high enough to set:

This is an incredibly special mountain. The story will be told later. This is also where Captain broke my camera.

This is the little life I am very excited to live in again for the next 4/5 months until we start another chapter.

All of you DETROIT tumblrs….

Where can I get some great Detroit goodies for the out-of-towner’s welcome bags in the hotel rooms for the wedding weekend?!

I’m thinking Ridley’s (ok, that is Troy but…) muffins, Faygo Pop, and other Detroit/Michigan related goodies… but what else?

Something like this for my Flower dog…

Now is the time we begin to look for homes. In the beginning of June we will be moving back to the “lower 48” to begin our CIVILIAN (boy does that sound great, and uncomplicated) life together. This is my dream home, at a dream cost, in a dream location. Not only does this house exist here, a dream job as a director of facilities and construction exists here, and it is smack dab in-between the in-laws, near a GREAT law school!

Keeping my fingers crossed that everything lines up!

I need…
