Simple Love

Today's What I Am Loving Wednesday will be short and sweet. I love having a chance each week to focus on the things that have made my heart happy, and this week is no exception. Thank you to Jaime for hosting the link-up. 

I am loving my husband. 
As this deployment as grown closer, I have watched nervously as the countdown changed from months to weeks to days. It was a distant event when we first PCS'ed to Fort Drum, but now a second doesn't goes by where I don't think about it. I am loving these moments we still have together. I love the fact that he is still sitting on the couch with me right now, instead of thousands of miles away. I will probably do this link-up for most of the time he is gone. Maybe pretty dresses and quotes will be the things I love that week. But I will never love anything like I love him.
 I am loving his insatiable curiosity about the world around him. I am loving the fact he makes me tea and the sweet way he interacts with Asha.  I am loving the fact that I have loved him for almost a decade. He knows me better than anyone else possible could. I am loving that I know we will make it through this deployment and come out stronger at the end. I am loving that I have a chance to write more love letters, and to receive love letters from him. 
I am loving that the impending separation makes every moment together seem more valuable. I wish I could carry this sense of importance into the rest of our lives together. I hope that I never forget how much I treasured this time. 


  1. So sweet. :) And I think you WILL go on treasuring your time with Lane (post-deployment, post-Army, etc), because you will have experienced what it is like to not have that person right next to you when you want them to be. As much as I hate this deployment, what a gift it's given me in the form of perspective! Thinking of you. I'm only a text/phone call/email/14-hour drive away. ;)

  2. I know he loves you as much as you love him! ♥

  3. I couldn't even imagine. I wish you both great, quality time!

  4. What a sweet post! Love your blog!

  5. So sweet! Saying hello from WILW! LOVING your blog:)

  6. This post almost made me cry I little. I will be continuously praying for your husband through his deployment and for you as well. Even though I know it won't be nearly enough time, I hope you both spend tons of quality time together before he leaves.

  7. Stopping by from WILW...what a sweet post about your husband! I'm sure you will never ever forget this treasured time!
