The Wait Is Finally Over...

Hello Everyone!
After a long seven month deployment my hubby is home from war.
Hooray! This has been the third time since we have been married and
it is never an easy thing being apart for so long. My sincere thanks go
out to him for his hard work. He led and accomplished many great things.
Please join me in welcoming him home. Let us pray for the quick return of
all the others who are still serving. May they all be blessed and safe. Peace.
We have much to catch up on so please excuse my blog absense once again.
I'll be back as soon as I can to update you on our moving plans and more stuff.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and stay cool.

Please give him my thanks for his service to our country.

I have taken a break on "blog reading" so it was good to catch up with what you are doing. Enjoy your hubby and your time together. Thank him for his service and his helping to protect our freedom. I will bee looking forward to hearing about your house hunting!

My Photo
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a USMC wife married to a wonderful man for fifteen years. He's a CH-53E pilot and has done three fleet tours overseas. I am very proud of him and his hard work. For many years I worked in retail jewelry sales and finally decided it was time to stop and enjoy my decorating passion. We share our home with our cat Chestnut, Lloyd the cockatiel and a betta fish. I appreciate all of your comments and try to respond to as many as I can. Join me! I would be happy for you to follow along.
