My 3 L's
Me and my 3 L's.
Lucas (hubby) and my 2 boys, Lance and Landon!
When upset, I do struggle to say the right name.

We've been through quite a lot together, as a family of 4, but it hasn't always been this way.
Lance (my oldest) and I did our own thing for years before I met Lucas(my husband).
Lucas had to quickly adjust to the co-parenting way of life.
And Lance & I had to adjust to the army way of life!
A few years later we welcomed (my youngest) Landon.

Working mom, fitness lover, and as you've figured out an Army wife.
DIY'er of all sorts, sometimes pathetic and just all ways wrong, but never without good intention and fun.
I love staying busy and live for my evenings and weekends.

We move around a lot, like every 3 years, a lot. (thank you Army for the free travels)
We've lived the island life, on Oahu and are now back on the East Coast, sitting pretty in VA.
Orders say we'll report to Colorado summer 2013. I don't  hold my breath, it's the Army way, but in the meantime, I plan to stock up on winter clearance items.

I hope to share with you random bits and motivation for a healthy, fit you.
It is a true passion of mine, a real dedication. I am as real as the next person and have my moments of
"but, I don't want to", I overcome them because the reward of staying fit and healthy is like no other.
I believe in dripping heart-shaped sweat.

Other truths about me...

I wish to raise two gentlemen.
Def, expect random pics and stories of my 2 boys.
With 11 years between the two of them, you can only imagine our days.

I wish to be a happy wife. A strong wife. A loving mother and a beautiful me.
Find a story or two of wild nights out, the real meaning of love and the inevitable, an Army wife finding her footing in a new "world". Marriage is a beautiful thing, a priceless relationship. Finding your best friend, your soul mate means "happy ever after" but it isn't always that easy. We have our trials and tests and we've stood the test of time. We love hard.

I wish to keep the peace.
I strive to find a calmer me and keep a happy circle around me.
If you choose to join that circle, lets stay happy! Ugliness is just that, ugly.
The world has so much beauty to offer and I try my best to capture it.
Whether it's in a photo, a quote, in creativity and art, or the simple, stillness and reflection.

Jill St George said...

Hey you...saw you on LIY today...I'm about five spots below you on the giveaway...Olive Heart. Just had that feeling I'd connect with you...and then I read you were a single mom to a little boy before getting married. I'm a single mama too, so I'm sure you can relate. Aside from that, I'm REALLY needing some motivation when it comes to my health and body...and jeez, one look at you is all I need. Super excited to follow your blog now!!!! xo!
