Dad, I hope you have a wonderful birthday. I miss being in the same country with you! You are such a special dad & I miss being near you. Looking forward to seeing you this summer. I LOVE you!

Being a military family, you move around a lot. My husband & I joke about what we will do when we have to live in an area for more than 3 years - that has been our longest time frame in one area. Our shortest was 8 months. Prior to living in Kuwait we moved every year for 5 years, sometimes twice within a year. The crazy life we lead, but it's ours!
Shortly after we got to Kuwait & settled into our life here, I decided to make a canvas, Home is Where the Heart Is. I have all these little hearts of the places we've lived. My sweet & creative friend Crystal made a comment way back when that she'd like one of those canvases for her. Almost a year later we finally got together & made one.
We spent the day chatting, laughing & creating. I had to laugh at her FB post that she didn't know if she would be creative enough. The joy of crafting with others is learning from them - you get a whole other perspective. She even taught me a few things :)
Crystal is one of my friends leaving this year - she'll have a new heart to add. While moving to different locations is a constant in this life we live, you never quite get used to it.
