Next Chapter for the Burton's

Well, as everyone knows, Jamie is stateside again! HORRAY! As of now he is living in Oklahoma and stationed at Fort Sill. He will be there until April 2011, which is when he will finish his Captain's Career Course. I am so proud of him and everything that he has done! As for me, I am still working like crazy but loving every minute of it! I am also trying to break into my own business of photography! Its always been a love of mine and I am finally promoting myself!!! We are excited to spend our first/second Thanksgiving together and with friends, but look forward to seeing our families in December!

Love, pride, and honor!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY everyone!: ) Well as most of you know this day holds so much emotion for myself and my family! Not only is it our nations birthday, but its the Burton's anniversary! :) Its unbelievable that a year has passed already!!! With the approach of this day I am completely overwhelmed with love, pride, honor, and a little sorrow. Today marks the day that I married my best friend and promised to be with him forever and for this I am grateful! Today is also the day that we celebrate all of the men and women in uniform and thank them for all that they do. So far that's two for two! Jamie is the most amazing man I know and is my hero for all that he does! I cannot thank him or his fellow soldiers and their families enough for the sacrifices that they make!!! Last but not least, the little bit of sorrow is simply the fact that Jamie is not here...BUT he is safe, and that is all that matters!!! He will be coming home SOON and for that I praise God! I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday and stays safe! As for the Burton's...we just checked off the first year and cannot wait for MANY more to come! :)

Has it really been 365 days?

As the anniversary of the most wonderful day of my life approaches, I can do nothing but be thankful! Thankful that the Lord allows me to wake up each day, thankful that my dear sweet husband is safe, thankful that I have wonderful family and friends who don't "forget" about me just because I live in Texas. I can honestly say that I have never been so proud to be Mrs. James Burton! The work that Jamie is doing and will do is wonderful, and every day I love him more and more!
Looking back on the past year, Jamie and I have been through little and a lot at the same time. Few holidays and big events together, but many small hurdles. Such as not speaking for weeks at a time due to him being in the field; or playing phone tag when he can only call at one time during the day due to my work. Married life is fabulous, but I have to assume that it will be even better when I get to see my husband every now and again! :) This year has been tough, but very doable.Being an Army wife is certainly a challenge, but I have no doubt in my mind that the Lord put us together because he knew that we would be just fine!
As I reflect on this past year, I cannot help but wonder what is next? What does the good Lord have in store for us now? So much has changed in just 365 short days! Marriage, moved across the country, new house, new job, and the husband being deployed. To me, it seems like just another day, but to some it seems impossible. It really humors me when non-Army people look at me with sad puppy dog eyes when they ask me about my husband and I begin to tell them. Why are you sad?? Are you going to miss my husband for me?! HA! I'm not sad, I'm living my life, and so should you! I am an Army wife, which means that I will spend too much time away from my husband...its what we do! :) I just hope and pray that this next year will be better than the first and brings amazing things to the Burton's!
