< 3

"thought i'd been touched
thought i'd been kissed
thought i'd been loved
but it was nothing like this.

you can’t describe the sea
unless you’ve been there before
it’s just a mystery until you’re standing
on the shore and moved by every wave
taking your breath away
like you do to me

it’s like another life
like I hadn’t felt a thing
until you
oh, it was nothing like this"

{thank you rascal flatts for your new cd-}

oh man

i miss this man already. i'm so proud of him though. we are crossing our fingers and toes during these interviews. 3 nights down, 19 to go. my new work schedule-- 6 days a week, doesn't allow me any visits. who says absence makes the heart grow fonder? oh how wrong they are..
bright side: one month today: joslyn pattee.

side note: (NOT putee or paty- but PATTEE)

People always say that when you love someone, nothing in the world matters. But that's not true, is it? You know, and i know, that when you love someone, everything in the world matters a little bit more." -Jodi Picoult, Handle with Care.

i just

reallllly love this man.

last week with him; last rotation ever. when he comes back home it will be wedding week.

sometimes i get tears in my eyes when i think about how he has been the one for me this whole time, we both just had to be really patient until it was the lord's timing. i sure do have a lot to be thankful for this thanksgiving..

we had a very fun time celebrating halloween. of course nana went allll out and we had a very yummy festive dinner and carved pumpkins! i won the contest! i never win, justin's my good luck charm i guess.

yes, we got very into it..

the masterpieces:)

.. this would be my dad, waiting to jump out and scare g & sis. just and i watched and we laughed our heads off.. they were so scared. their is never a dull moment in this family..

i was tinkerbell and dressed up for work:) stylists didn't recognize me as a blonde. . i wore high heels and they killed me, so justin brought me comfy shoes and his first response was "what did you do with my fiance'?" he likes me better as a redhead. : )

my favorite part was seeing all the cute kiddos dressed up!!

and seeing my mom as witch!
the scariest part was being scared by my brothers at the sppook alley!

and ending the night watching what lies beneath with justin.. i attempted to cover my eyes more than 50 times..
