Welcome to the new year! Hopefully, you all had a great New Year's Eve with lots of celebrating with friends and loved ones. Jeremy and I stayed home and had a quiet evening in with the cats. We are homebodies and were in desperate need of a recharge. I don't know about y'all but Jeremy and I have a few traditions that we do every year to make sure we start the new year off on the right foot. Some of these you may have heard of but some of them you may not have.
I have talked about my friend, Dacia, before in this blog. We met earlier this year and have gotten really close over this summer. She is a lot of fun and we have a lot of the same interests. Unfortunately a few weeks ago she found out that she is having to PCS much sooner than we expected. She was suppose to PCS back next summer like us. Instead she is leaving the beginning of December. I know I am going to miss her.
While I was taking my break from everything on base, I decided to start pen paling again. Years ago I use to write both pen pal letters and wrote deployed service members. I had realized how much I missed doing that and decided to start both back up.
You would think being half way around the world would keep the drama I left behind from following me. Nope. It reared it's ugly head. It caught back up with me and I got sucked back in. Before I launch into this, this is not me gossiping. This is about a toxic friendship that continues to haunt me.
I know I have been gone for 6 months. I apologize. These past few months I took off from not just blogging but pretty much everything. I let people get in my head and I believed them when they made it seem I wasn't good enough. Before April I was already struggling with not feeling good enough at photography, being a good friend, and just struggling with my own self image.
This weekend I took part in my first Color Run. The base had a Color Me Aware Color Run down by Penny Lake. You were suppose to wear a certain color to bring awareness to different things.
