I haven’t posted anything very personal on this blog yet, so here’s a taste of what’s been happening in my life. This past December, at the TBQ Anniversary Party/Tweetup, I met a certain Edward White, soldier for the U.S. Army by day, photographer and social media darling by night. It was the closest to love at first sight that I will ever realistically be, and, much to my happiness, he felt the same.
Fast-forward to two months later, specifically Valentine’s Day. On this day, he left for his year-long deployment to Afghanistan. I never thought I would be a military girlfriend dealing with deployment, but when you know, you know, and he is completely worth the wait. To help document my experiences over the next year on being the significant other of a deployed soldier, I’ve started a 365 Photo blog over on Posterous. I’m already 3 days down, with at least 362 days left to go, but it has already helped me get through these first few days.
Ed himself is also blogging his deployment via Posterous, so please check it out. I have contributor permissions for his blog, so I may post something once in a while from the POV of the ‘girlfriend back home’. His father, Mark White, is also blogging there from a fatherly perspective, so you, dear reader, will get the full deployment experience!
There are a few more announcements of projects and such on the horizon, and I will hopefully be blogging a lot more now, so stay tuned.
