Y’all, sometimes (let’s be honest) a lot of the times life gets crazy & hard. I’ve learned that everyone has battles they are facing, but it’s about seeing the good in them. For the past several months I’ve been wayy out of my comfort zone working with my husband as a welder helper. If you know me then you are probably laughing thinking about me buffing pipe in my huge jumpsuit & hardhat lol! But anyways- so far we have worked in 6 states this year! It’s been hard & fun & interesting & freaking hot! And I thought about quitting around 29 times (a day). We usually work 7 days a week, 12 hr days & come home soaked in sweat & dirt. We don’t feel like doing a thing because we are SO tired. It is exhausting! Sometimes I complain but honestly I am thankful that we have a job & for the time I get to spend with Gary. (Like 24 hrs all day everyday bwahaha). We have laughed our faces off, driven a million miles, argued & gotten on each other’s nerves, stayed in strange hotels, met some really nice people, & seen some cool places. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
Gary teaches me something new every single day. He is seriously brilliant & so hard working. After 3 1/2 years of marriage he never fails to impress me. Honestly I still can’t believe I get to be his wife. So many people ask us, “How do you spend all day working together without ripping each others heads off?” lol. I am not saying we are perfect, we have to work at it! But through everything, we have really learned to work well together. We argue but we know how to move on and get over it. I am so thankful that I got a chance to work with him. I respect & love him even more for it:) I will say that I definitely have a new appreciation for his job. Its hard work people. Being out in the heat all day is rough. Its hard being away from family & friends. It’s hard never knowing where we will be. It’s hard not being able to make any plans. But it’s okay! I am learning to let go & breathe & trust in God’s timing & plans for us. Plus, sometimes it ruins all the magic if you have your life all planned out:) And honestly I think it’s these years that we will look back on & find the most beautiful. These years of us just traveling around in this little camper of ours just going wherever life takes us:)
