Day 30: The finish line...

Today is not only the last day of my 30 day blogging challenge, but it's also the final lap in this 1st deployment for my husband and I.

Military couples can attest to the fact that the deployments are long, hard and often chaotic, but today my husband and I received a tentative return date for him to be in the states. It's not set in stone... of course nothing with the military is, and I won't believe it until I get the call that he's on the plane from Germany back to the US... but it does feel like we're rounding that final corner in that final lap, the finish line in site. Deployments can sometimes feel like a race that has no end, but I'm glad to know the end is quickly nearing.

In terms of my blogging challenge, I'm happy that I was able to write every day (even when I didn't want to) and never fell behind. It's easy to give up or overload on catch up posts but to me that defeats the purpose of the challenge. What I'll take away from this challenge is trying to find more creative ways to share my thoughts with readers. I'm in the process of working on some new things for next year so I'm excited to be able to share that with everyone.

Happy Hump Day!!!

Good for you that you completed your challenge!

I pray that your hubby comes home soon. I know how that feels. For me, it felt like the end part was the worst with all of the anxiety and date changes.

Blogging everyday in addition to the regular posts I wanted to write was definitely a challenge, but I'm glad to see that I can pump the posts out.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm hoping that he gets home safe and sound. He's been gone the majority of the year so I'm just ready to get back to our normal, daily life... sans skype! lol
