The Countdown Begins...



The last year has been filled with tears, smiles, stress, and magical memories. While even though some moments have been better then others, I can finally say it’s almost over! As many of you know my husband has been deployed for the last year in Afghanistan. He has been gone for far too long and now I am SO EXCITED to announce that the count down begins! In TEN days I will have the love of my life back in my arms for good. No more tears of I miss you or sleepless nights wondering if he is OK. He’s on his way home and the last goodbye will not be to my son and I, it will be to a small cubical box, a hard bed, and sand in his shoes. So, I thought in celebration of his homecoming countdown, I would share TEN of my most memorable memories of my husband and I, including the story of how we met.

Before ending this celebration post, I can’t go without saying THANK YOU to all who have supported my family and I through this last year. It has been your thoughts and prayers that have gotten me through this last year and without you, I am not sure how strong I could have really been. So, from the bottom of my heart I say thank you for all that you have done. Whether big or small, it truly means the world to have supporting friends and family by my side. THANK YOU!
