It has officially been one week since Steven left for Iraq. It gets harder each time; however I have learned how to handle it better! I wait until I am away from the drop off area before I cry, or should I say sob? ! The first several days are very tough, and I am so blessed to have wonderful family and friends to support me. My sister invited the kids and I to Bodega Bay Dunes and it was JUST what I needed. We spent the day at the beach, and spent the evening huddled by the campfire listening to the waves and fog horn. I spent the rest of the week at home, getting back into the routine, yet my sadness and broken heart did not subside. I miss my soul mate and best friend. I miss our time together… I cannot wait to see him again in a few months… We both agree that God has a plan for us and we will continue to honor Him and have faith! Although we are apart, we are blessed with our health and a home, family and friends.
So, this week I peeled myself off the floor and the sadness that consumed me and started working! I was asked to create some onesies for a baby shower, received a hair clip request from a bride, and was just asked to donate a gift certificate for a raffle. In addition, Angie Arthur (with Angie Arthur Photography) featured Sucre Lulu on her blog. I am doing a $50 giveaway (www.thearthurclan.com), and she took some phenomenal photo’s of the product. I cannot wait to post them. Thank you Angie… I am so honored!
I have posted some photos of the new clips I made this week. I have tried something new and I would love any and all feedback! Enjoy!
