The holidays flew by and my once bustling, brilliant, pine-scented existence is now quiet. Here I am with a un-adorned home, rainy weather, and a husband who’s going to be traveling non-stop for almost three months. It’s a bit overwhelming.  
With Dan leaving for so long, we have made an effort to spend a lot of time with friends over the last few weeks. Since we dont have family nearby, it’s important for us to stay connected to our community of friends.  I have learned the importance of sharing my life with others in a deeper way than what I am used to.  It’s so important to find friends you can talk to.  I have become much closer with the people in my life who are apathetic and, at the same time, support our lifestyle and Dan being on tour.  I like to be with people who ask about Dan, where he is and how I’m doing.  While my husband is away, I have made a rule for myself:  I will only spend time with my friends who know and love my husband and who respect our marriage.  It’s important to me that we maintain our identity as a couple – even when he’s traveling.  We are so grateful for each person in these photos - and many more not pictured.  These are the people who call me and invite me out or have me over for dinner while Dan is touring.  I appreciate it, very much.
What do you do to share your life with your friends?  Do you  have a place or a group with whom you feel comfortable to share your struggles and victories with?
