thank you

Thank you all those that are serving our country, or have served our country!
You give (gave) the greatest thing to this country....your service. Your time. Your life.
You, that have fallen, are remembered in our prayers of gratitude.
Thank you.
Both Chris and I grew up with a respect for the military. Chris' dad served in Vietnam, jumping out of helicopters. Both my mom and dad served in the Air Force. I have four uncles that served, along with my grandfather. I probably would have served if I didn't have blood issues. But in a way, I am serving the military.

Being a military wife is one of the hardest things I've done. But also one of the best. We have so many things that are available to us, as military, that we would have never had. Things like living places I would have never seen if Chris haven't of joined the Air Force. I would have NEVER paid to go to Alaska. But we lived there, made amazing friends, saw and did some of the coolest things in the world, and our families have enjoyed it too. Now we have a new adventure of New Mexico. I'm excited to see what it brings us.

I'm so grateful to have my hubby home. I'm just as grateful to all my friends and fellow military members, that don't have their loved one home. You guys are in my prayers and thoughts every day. Thank you for your sacrifice.

I just wanted to take the time and thank those serving. If you have time, watch the video of Chris' favorite song. It made this prego cry like a baby. :)

Thanks guys!!

Amen, sister! I love that your header is pregnant too. How goes the pregnancy? How is life in New Mexico? Are you all settled in? It's hard to move, ain't it? Especially with a toddler and one on the way.

Hey, how goes the magic quilt? Not that you haven't been super busy or anything. ;)

Lub YOu! and Miss you!
