Feeling A Bit Emo-tional...


It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.

-Charles Dickens




This is the kind of view that makes me truly appreciate Colorado...
I get to look out of my bedroom window and find beauty, such as this.
The very bedroom that I share with my husband.
He may be absent at the moment, but I still feel his presence and that presence is what keeps this house feeling like a home.
Our home.
Not literally, but in the visceral sense.
Deeper than a cement foundation.
Stronger than the roof over our head.
A bond formed that does not require a home other than our hearts.


I was able to Skype with Will for the first time this evening.  
Just seeing his face filled my heart.
It has me a bit emotional (obviously), but not in a bad way.
We have 253 days left, as you can see on the countdown I have added to the left,
and we will get through it.

One day at a time.
One grainy picture at a time....
