A Letter to my Police Recruit

I’m over on Love and Blues today sharing a letter I wrote to my police recruit on his first day!

Dear Police Recruit,

You looked so handsome this morning as I sent you out the door.

You tossed restlessly last night, and I laid next to you just thinking about all the new changes coming our way.

You woke up and showered and tied your tie in the bathroom mirror. We both smiled and exchanged those nervous glances. This is it!

You squared your shoulders and grabbed your lunch and then I kissed you goodbye.

It’s your first day at the police academy, and I am so, so proud of you.


Head on over to Love and Blues to read the rest!


Theo has now survived his first week of the police academy. I’m not going to lie…that was really intense. It’s a totally different world having a husband gone every day, and I’m going to admit that it’s not as easy as I thought it would be. I think that it will just take an adjustment period and we will loving it, but this first week made us feel like we were just tossed into a super intense washing machine and are being beaten up a little bit! Phew! I’m so glad it’s Friday!
