2011 was a fantastic and fantastically difficult year. I married my best friend and then lent him to the Army for a year. I have found out what true friends are and that I can't do everything by myself. I am still learning to ask for help but getting slightly better about it. I made to MA +60 and have almost completed a second graduate degree. I broke my first bone. All of these things made 2011 unforgettable but I can't say that I'm said to see it come to a close.
I have so many things to look forward to in 2012. Sarge and I will get to be together again. I get to travel to Germany for R&R this February. I will have a new niece this spring. I'll have a new brother-in-law this fall. I have a few weddings, more babies and who knows what other celebrations to enjoy. All of these are exciting and life-changing events (some for others more than me!) and I look forward to sharing them.
Thanks to all who read this and those who have commented since I started writing in July. Keep coming back and share it with someone I don't know. I've only been an Army wife for 8 months and since we've been apart for more than 5 of them I think I'll qualify for newlywed status for a looooong time. This isn't easy and there are days I wish it could be different. But, I couldn't be more proud of my husband and what he's doing and what we're accomplishing. I couldn't be more proud of what I've done this year. So, thanks for a great 2011 and time to gear up for 2012!
