Living With Depression and Anxiety

Living With Depression and Anxiety | Why Hello Lovely

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I honestly just spent a lot of time sleeping and watching Netflix and really just relaxing.  For the most part, I was pretty disconnected from my phone and computer aside from answering a few emails and talking to Zack.  It was very much-needed.  I was alsoRead more

Living In Limbo

Living In Limbo | Why Hello Lovely

It’s that time of month, ladies.  I know, I know.  That may be a bit of an overshare.  But I’m just not handling it well.  It’s yet another month where this girl still isn’t pregnant.  I had him home for three weeks and still nothing.  As much as we both want to start our family, Zack and IRead more

I Do It Because I Have To

I Do It Because I Have To | Keating & Co.

When people find out Zack is stationed overseas, their first reaction (aside from “wow, that sucks”) is “I don’t know how you do it.” I get it constantly.  And honestly, I had no idea how other people did it either.  I looked at other military spouses who have gone through a dozen deployments and thought they hadRead more

Dealing With The New “Normal”

Dealing With The New "Normal" | Keating & Co.

This morning was rough. It’s been almost three weeks now since Zack left and it’s been a really challenging adjustment for me to deal with.  I wish I was handling it better, but I’m not.  I have days where I’m feeling great and then everything comes crashing down in the blink of an eye. ThisRead more

It’s Not A “Goodbye”, It’s A “See You Later”

It's Not A "Goodbye", It's A "See You Later" | Keating & Co.

Yesterday was the day I have been dreading for weeks now.  The day that my entire life was set to fall apart.  The day I had to say goodbye to my best friend. We woke around 3 o’clock in the morning and drove the 20 minutes to the airport, just the two of us. IRead more
