Blogiversary + News

Today marks two years of Mimi & Meg. It's been so much fun posting and writing, and I hope to continue blogging for a long time. I obviously don't do it for the money (since I don't make any doing it at this point), but simply because I enjoy it. It's like an aesthetic journal that I'm figuring out along the way.

I guess this is a good time to tell you all some news. I've struggled with whether or not to even bring this into my blog, but since I do post some personal things, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to leave this part of my life out of my blog. But it's my life, and it's something I'm really excited about.

My husband has joined the U.S. Air Force. So over the past few months I've been learning about the military and all the things that go with the military lifestyle (I even bought A Family's Guide to the Military for Dummies, which is pretty helpful). I'm also learning that things always change. So I feel like I never have any absolute answers. C is leaving in January for two years of extensive training because he is going into the Special Operations of the Air Force. I don't think this date will change considering it already has once, but again, you never know. I am really happy for C to start this career. I think it will be challenging and really exciting for him.

I am planning to stay in Kansas City during his training, and reevaluate after he is done and gets stationed at a base. I have no idea what the next two years will be like. I know I will miss him greatly between the times I will get to see him. But I am so happy for him, and support his decision 100% that I try to remain focused on the positive. I'm an optimist, so it's probably easier for me than others, but I'm also realistic and I do think about and prepare myself for being without him. I just wanted to let you all know what was going on, and why I haven't been posting as often as I usually do. I don't plan to write about it often, or change my blog, but I'm sure it will come up. Hopefully I'll have some fun stories and photos from traveling to share with everyone.
