I had the most wonderful time at your beautiful wedding. If anyone deserves love, loyalty, and a lifetime of happiness, it is you, Ash. Congratulations to my soul twin and her new hubby! πŸ‘°πŸΌ#operationfoxtrotwhiskey #sisterfromanothermister #friendshipgoals #wedding
Told myself to get haircut before the wedding. Did not get haircut before wedding. πŸ™„
Ashley,  I've been waiting to post this photo, because I wanted to find the right words to describe what an important person you are in my life. For those of you who don't know this silly, beautiful, and kind spirit- I call her my soul twin because we joined the USAF at the same time, went to tech school together, went to our first and second duty station together and then medically retired at the same time. We also share a ridiculous obsession with animals (she has 4 dogs, 2 cats, a bunny, chickens... I know I'm forgetting some). Everyone confused us at our duty stations bc we were both tall with long blonde hair that worked in similar jobs. It didn't matter we moved far away from each other. You have remained a friend and sister that I know I will keep for life. I love your generous and vibrant spirit, and I love YOU! This trip to Tahoe w you, was so healing to my soul. Thank you for being in my life! Now you are getting married, and giving me hope that the love that lasts can come the second time around. I can't wait to spend your special day with you. πŸ–€ #soultwin #laketahoe #friendship
Happy national dog day. Reunited with this boy today after being gone for 2 whole days (πŸ˜‚)! Dogs>women #nationaldogday #bestfriend #chesapeakebayretriever #thetyty
One thing I would tell my younger self if I could go back in time: Stay hungry...not for people...not for approval; but hungry for experiences... hungry for growth... hungry for an adventure that leaves you at your death bed, saying "I'm ready." #lifeoverexistence #laketahoe #sanharbor

This little guy turned 12 today! 😩😭 #babybrother

When I eat leaves instead of in n out. πŸƒ> πŸ”#throwfoodatmyface
This is a goofy pic of me, but idc bc one of my favorite souls is in this. Thank you for being such a loving, compassionate, and loyal friend. I found you right when I needed it the most. I can't wait for more adventures, weddings, babies, vacations, and old age, bc I have no doubt in my mind you will be in my future! I'm so glad you got past my RBF and pointy nose to be friends with me. 😝You light up my world. πŸ–€πŸŒ»
In case you need to hear this today: You will come out the other side of whatever you are facing, and you will come out even stronger and more determined than you ever imagined. The people who you surround yourself with are crucial. Find a tribe full of positive energy, unconditional love, support, and compassion. Thank you to the beautiful people I call family. I'm really starting to enjoy my life again. It is an amazing feeling. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ–€πŸŒΉ

Happy Father's Day to the 3 most important men in my life. Dad, you taught me how to throw a punch and how to be independent. You always protected and spoiled me as your only child and daughter. Don, you taught me how to drive and to have patience. You always considered me as your own kid. Papa, you taught me how to fish and how to be strong. I feel lucky to be your first grandchild. Some girls don't have anyone to thank on this day, and I have three. I love you. ❀️ #fathersday #family #dadfashion
I remember moving away right after my 18th birthday. I remember being determined to do my own thing, dropping my volleyball scholarship, and shortly after enlisting in the USAF. I remember my dad telling me how hard it was for my mom to go to church and talk to all her friends who  dropped their kids off to their first day of college while she had not. I know I got my degree while I was active duty, but that was a whole different world. I took my "first day of school" photo for you, Mom. I think you are more excited than I am. I love you, and you make me want to be great. ❀️

Lately, stress has had me very focused on my destination. I say, "After I complete this task, fix this issue, do this thing, my life will be where I want it to be." I am a perfectionist in every sense. I focus on all the things I still need to get done so that my mind can be at peace... one more thing I need to accomplish to be enough. What a burden to put on myself! There will always be one more thing...one more bill...one more problem to solve...another career move to make...one more material possession I "need" to be successful. I can tell you, if this is your focus in life you will always come up feeling empty. You will always feel like your swimming upstream and barely keeping your head above water. When I focus on these things I am really telling myself is that right now, as a transitioning veteran, as a student, as a woman in her mid 20s still trying to build a foundation- is that I'm not doing enough, I'm not enough, I am failing. I don't know when I got so hard on myself, maybe when I completely uprooted my entire life to start over; I think we are our own worst critics. Just reminding myself and anyone else trying so hard (and feeling so tired) to give yourself a break, be kind to yourself, and focus on the journey rather than the destination. Look at all the things you have done rather than everything you still "need" to do. Bring your mind into this moment and find your own peace. No matter what's wearing at your heart, I promise you are enough. #keepgoing #lifeoverexistence
Happy 80th to my Papa! Hat made by my baby sister. Almost the whole family made it in for this amazing man's birthday. Really missing home today. πŸ˜“ I love you so much!
I want someone who gets me. Someone who brings me coffee before trying to drag me out of bed. Who knows kitten videos make me cry and that I will watch the same golden girls episodes over and over again and never get sick of it. Who throws snacks at my face bc they knew I wasn't really mad, I was just hungry. Who turns on cult horror or Disney movies and hides under my blanket fort with me when I'm sad. Who would still think I'm beautiful in my sweats, going in on a bowl of mac n cheese. Who could sit next to me in silence and their presence was enough. Who sees when I'm feeling vulnerable and reaches for my hand. Who holds me at night when I roll over rather than ever letting us sleep back to back. Who stops me in the middle of my anxiety- induced, rambling sentences and says, "I know, and it's okay." Who I would never need to explain myself to. Who makes it easy to open myself up without feeling silly for being the sensitive, passionate human that I am.  With love, you have to open yourself up to ever find it. The scary part is you can also have someone look right back at your naked, exposed soul and see no flame in their eyes. You hand them your heart, and they hand it right back. The thing about loving so hard, is you also feel the heartbreak the deepest. Idk if that exists in my future, but here's to loving. Here's to caring. Here's to trying anyway. πŸ₯€
Another matching photo to say Happy Mother's Day to my Grandmother who also helped raise me. 7 children. 16 grandchildren. And obviously gave me my love for horses. 🐎 I love you, Nana! #farmgirls #mothersday #wematch
