Hi, I'm Kim.


I live 1200 Miles Away from my husband.

Why would any sane person do such a thing? Well, first off, I never said I was 100% sane, and secondly, because it just made sense. 


You see, my husband (Kevin) is active duty military, and when they tell you to move, you just – well – move. But this time, I didn't. It’s not that we've fallen out of love or our relationship is over, in fact, we’re stronger than we ever have been. It’s that we’re thinking of the long-term investment, and 4 years across a whole lifetime is really not that long. 


He moved to California for his job and I stayed in Colorado for mine. Schools were just better in Colorado for our daughter (Avery). We had just bought a house a mere 3 months before we found out about the orders. Again, I dare say. It just made sense.


So my tween-aged daughter and I live in Colorado, and my loving husband lives in California. These are the adventures, musings, and life stories of us living 1200 miles away.



A few more tidbits about me personally:

Think of these as having a lot of spinning plates at one time, and hoping one doesn't fall down.  

A few of my favorite posts:

I love to collaborate on projects that meet the needs of the military community or mamas of crazy tweens out there - like the one pictured above!
