Happy New Year!

It's already been a big day! I got a replacement phone and case, we received our wedding DVDs, and got a sneak peek on Simply Violet Photography's blog! If you would like to see some of the pictures, click here!

But here's reality: S leaves for Navy Bootcamp in 12 days. The realization finally hit me yesterday. I have been so preoccupied with the wedding and then enjoying the honeymoon and the holidays, I had pushed it to the far corners of my mind. Emotions seem to hit me at the most random times, and as I talked to S about organizing our gifts, the waterworks found their way to my eyes. 

S asked me yesterday when I thought the honeymoon phase would end. I realized that the phase may not end before he leaves, which will make the leaving part much more difficult. I am confident that the infamous bike trip has prepared me for this next big adventure and I am ready to face it head on. As we begin this new chapter and new year in our lives, I am curious and excited about the changes to come. Bring it on, 2015!
