On Saturday I photographed the most emotional moments of my career..⠀💛 ⠀ An old friend of mine contacted me months ago telling me her husband who is in the military will be coming home for the first time in 9 months. My heart stopped as I thought of not seeing my husband, my best friend for NINE whole months..⠀ ⠀ I kept reading and my heart dropped. She went on to tell me that she had her second child, a little sweet girl while he was away and this will be the first time he meets his sweet baby girl at 6 months old..⠀ ⠀ I couldn't pass up the opportunity to gift someone with some of the most precious memories. We headed to the airport on Saturday and they anxiously awaited at the gate waiting to kiss each other again for the first time in almost a year.⠀ ⠀ Sometimes I take for granted that I get to see my husband every single day, hug him, kiss him. When I had the chance to be a part of this, it made me take a step and be SO THANKFUL for the strong husbands and wives who are in this milarty. For the strength to serve our country, and the strength for the women to raise their babies without their husbands along side them.. Can you imagine?⠀ ⠀ Tears, kisses, hugs while these four reunited. Devon met his daughter for the first time, threw his son in the air and kissed the love of his life and held her tight.⠀ ⠀ I know I'll be going to bed extra thankful tonight for my hubby beside me. But also thankful for the amazing souls who serve our country. 😭💛

Letting the cat outta the bag kinda early because I don't like "secrets/surprises 😂 After a season of infertility, the Lord has given us another babe on our last shot before M is gone for the rest of the year. I have been humbled through this season and am thankful for an extra sensitivity to and awareness of what it feels like to be unable to conceive. I'm also humbled by how much control I thought I had over my fertility, but it truly is the LORD and Him alone who opens and closes the womb in HIS perfect timing. Thanks for praying for us and for continuing to pray for us! I would really like to not be on bedrest for 15 weeks this time 😉 I'm currently trying to manage another newborn while feeling "good" for only about 2 hours every afternoon, so I'll probably be kinda MIA for a bit. Anywho, yeah life's nuts but we don't really know it any other way ❤️. . . And to all my friends struggling with infertility, my heart goes out to you. I know that announcements like these make your heart stop a little bit & the tears can flow. You are on my mind and in my prayers daily. Wrestle well, sisters.

I’m so ready to take on the world with you two. Very very soon we will be packing up and moving again when dad gets home. Last cross country trip was pretty fun so let’s hope this time its even better. Im so ready to have our family all together again! I also couldn’t imagine not having these two by my side. We made it through this deployment boys I can’t believe it but we did it somehow thanks for never leaving my side mom really appreciates it❤️ Pc📸: @carolina_light_photo • • • • • • • • #malinois #malinoislovers #malinoisworld #servicedog #servicedogsofinstagram #servicedogsofig #psychiatricservicedog #medicalalertdog #fitdogsofinstagram #agilitytraining #dogsofinstagram #dogexercise #dogconditioning #militaryhomecoming #militaryspouse #marinecorpslife

mairinelisabeth. So back when Michael and I got married, we didn't have a place to host

So back when Michael and I got married, we didn't have a place to host people until November (aka 6 months into marriage lol). We went from friends' houses to family's to strangers' (who became friends!) to hotels. And all I could think was, "What the heck, I can't even play house!" In that season, I learned that hospitality is most importantly a spirit/attitude more so than a cute set of dishes, a perfect meal, and yummy smelling candles. I'm thankful I learned that early on, because that mindset has allowed me to keep opening my doors even when the house isn't vacuumed, dishes are in the sink, and I'm lookin' as exhausted as I actually am 😂. . . We had over 20 people piled into our house last night for fellowship, prayer, Bible study, and of course brownies à la mode ❤️ This OCF group has been the biggest gift to our family, and I'm thankful for the support of other Christians who understand this military life. I love having retired, gray hair with 20+ years of service to direct our perspective. I love having active duty COLs around who are willing to take our LTs to dinner and mentor them in their careers with a Biblical worldview. I love having fellow young children (because that's what I feel like I am hahaha) around so we can all figure out this insanity together and encourage one another in the Lord. . . I could go on forever about what a blessing this unique group of people is, but there's just nothing quite like it and I hope we can find this/make this happen wherever we go from here.

{Love Stories} “We met in the fall of 2016 in our hometown through mutual friends, little did I know a deployment would be quickly upon us in early 2017. We spent only 14 days together due to his deployment. His deployment switched to April instead of August. We spent that whole year apart due to different states and a completely different country with a 9 1/2 hour difference. 2017-Jan 2018 was the test of our relationship. Building on ONLY communication through messaging and FaceTime. We spent our first whole year together starting January 4th 2018 when he touched back down in the USA. We did so many firsts in 2018, still states apart but we continue to make it work to its fullest. This year 2019, he will be transitioning back home in the Summer, where we will begin our future together in our very first home. As Russell Dickerson says.. Thank God I am YOURS. Love will forever mean much more than distance, the greatest love comes from the biggest struggles. ❤️” @calheftka 📷: @alexzphotography . . . #military #militarylove #militarygirlfriend #militarywife #militarycouple #milso #militaryhomecoming #deployment #deploymenthomecoming #armywife #army #armylove #armygirlfriend #armyfamily #mysoldier #armycouple #milspo #milspouse #militaryspouse

“This is the 8th valentines my husband and I are spending together. We have been together since high school. My husband just got out of the Marine corps and is now going to the police academy. I’m getting my Masters in Social Work.

Our bodies are fucking incredible. We can grow humans, survive cancer, recover from injuries, shape and mold ourselves into whatever the hell we want. On the far left, I was pregnant with my son and holding my toddler daughter visiting clients at my old place of work. My career Marine husband was deployed to Iraq through most of that pregnancy. I lived in fear every day that I would be a widow with two kids. I was just trying to keep a handle on daily life, to be honest. A couple years later, I had my accident where I was hit by a car and decided to fight for recovery and go all in and rebuild myself. I did my first figure comp March 2013, exactly a year after the accident, and I jumped up and down like a fool for 5th place because I knew everything I had been through that year. Middle pic was USAs in 2017, my sixth show over the years. I killed myself in the gym for a long time to grow the muscle I have now. I was doing the bulk of my long-ass training sessions during the last bit of a rocky marriage and going through a divorce. We still lived together for 7 months after we split (awkward). I was escaping to the gym. FINALLY. The balanced life is where I’ve evolved to. I’ve maintained my weight and physique within 5 lbs for the past 2 years. I’m 39 years old, 5’2.5” and fluctuate comfortably between 140-145. I maintain my weight and energy and strength because I’M CONSISTENT and I have a bunch of muscle. Metabolic adaptation is a thing. My maintenance calories are about 2500. I eat intuitively. I track loosely in my head most of the time but I don’t stress about food, ever. I take basic supplements. I train 4-5 hours per week to maintain my physique. I’m strong and healthy and comfortable with ME. We evolve. We learn. We grow. I just hope you find true balance. ❤️ #balance #evolution #growth #life #nomorebangs

Name the ONE thing you couldn’t live without. Ironically, mine is my husband. Without him, I wouldn’t have my babies. I wouldn’t be able to laugh at the hard times. While he’s physically away, he does everything he can support me emotionally and mentally and I’m so thankful for him. . . . . #insteadofperfect #deployment #army #militaryspouse #blessings #onedayatatime

Navigating Tricare, finding a new doctor, getting to the doctor, being honest with the doctor, eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep can be difficult. In fact, it feels overwhelming and inconvenient to try to do all those things. However you need to shift your mind. Your health is not an inconvenience, it is a necessity. Sisters, early detection in any disease is paramount. We need you. And we need you at 100 percent. Stop putting yourself last. Let this be your wake up call, permission, or whatever it is you need to be the best kind of selfish. Prioritize you! #Herruck #militaryspouse #military #militarywife #armywife #milspouse #veteransday #militarylove #militaryfamily #marinewife #navywife #milso #armyspouse #love #navyspouse #army #militarylife #veterans #militaryphoto #selflove #airforce #airforcewife #veteran #usmcspouse #usafwife

PCS Hack No.26 Before a long distance move, consider having special pieces appraised (if their value is uncertain) and custom crated. When the movers come for their pre-walkthrough of your household goods, be sure to tell them if you want stuff crated individually. They measure your pieces and moving day, they have special crates pre-made. This was especially helpful for friends who bought unique furniture pieces while stationed overseas. #militarywife #militarylife #military #milspouse #militaryspouse #militaryfamily #armyfamily #armywife #armylife #pcsseason #movingwiththemilitary

I absolutely love getting Magnolia Magazine in the mail. The way the editors put the content together generally feels like a work of art—beautiful layouts and font choices, gorgeous pictures and articles I enjoy reading. Usually, I do a quick flip through once—often from the back cover, looking for things that catch my eye. A few months back, these words caught my eye and I knew they needed to be on someone’s wall. As I transition to a new style of signs, I know many of you, like me are entering new seasons of life and beautiful reminders that you are capable AND enough can be so encouraging. These are on my work table now, but they will be available very soon!

I remember the constant feeling that working out was a chore. The thought would go through my mind every single workout that “I’m going to have to do this for the rest of my life?!” . . It didn’t feel like something enjoyable or something I could do the rest of my life to be honest. . . Enter the workouts that I do now. I began working out almost everyday, had endless variety with my workouts, and trainers guiding me along every single one to ensure proper form and keep me motivated throughout. Plus, the tangible accountability + support that came along with it was something my previous workouts were lacking. It took me a while because I was super skeptical at first if these workouts could deliver results for my body the way I was used to. Plus, I’m super resistant to change 🤷🏼‍♀️ . . But now? I crave my 20-30 minute workouts every single day. I crave movement and nutrient dense foods for my body. When I do have a rest day, I am excited at the thought of getting back on track. It’s nonnegotiable for me and just another natural part of my day now. It’s not a chore, but something I enjoy doing because I KNOW how my body will feel without properly caring for it. . . What I don’t crave? The constant fatigue and lack of thriving in life. The lack of strength— both mentally and physically. The feelings of depression from horrible nutritional habits. The list could go on and on. . . I’m glad I made myself and my health a priority when I did. I feel like I am finally at a healthy place in both my mind and my body. And now I want that for e v e r y o n e I know around me. ❤️ . . . . . . #fitmom #momstrong #motherhoodrising #motherhoodunplugged #wahm #sahm #stayathomemom #fitness #mamabear #tiu #tiuteam #queenteam #tiucommunity #bbg #bbgcommunity #kaylasarmy #workhard #workhardplayhard #fitchristian #christian #god #godsplan #heartandsoul #newmom #marinewife #militaryspouse #marinespouse
