Welp.

That didn’t go quite as planned, did it?

After my most recent post in May of last year, I went home to Omaha, waved hello, bought a house (gulp.), and then promptly waved goodbye and left for two months in Cali followed by half a year or so in lovely Afghanistan (and it really is pretty lovely here).  While I could (and should) have been updating every day from Cali, where we did all sorts of cool stuff, it’s hard to post from out here where every day is virtually the same. Scroll below to get caught up, and you all can look forward to updates as we get home, remove our lives from storage, and I take a shit ton of leave to go places. (there may even be a new camera)

Whoops.

Obviously, this has failed to continue as a photo a day blog.

But I have an excuse! With 6 days of notice back in March, I came out here:

I’m missing my two favorite things about being home (well, I suppose three if I count the cat), and everything greening up, but I’m counting down now.
