Happy Blogiversary to meeeeeee and cheers to many more!
I am happy to say congrats to....
Thank you all for entering our lovely little giveaway, but Kelsey takes the cake this time!
I'm just happy that you have all stuck around this long ;)
This process obviously started way before the day of the Homecoming. We had to try to plan around a date that constantly changed, I had to coordinate with work, and the most important part? Stocking the fridge, pantry, and bar!
I also made this cake. Isn't it cute?
In case you are wondering, Pistachio pudding is awesome when added to cake mix and frosting. This is now a hubby approved dessert option.
The morning of the ceremony, I was a complete basket case. I probably seemed calm on the outside, but just knowing that Will was in this country was amazing. When I got the text that he was in the Springs? I could barely contain myself! Needless to say, I was at the Special Event Center TWO hours early. I was determined to have a good seat.
While we sat there on pins and needles, the soldiers loaded up on the buses and were escorted from the airport. Will said that it felt really good to have the Motorcycle Cops stop all traffic through town. What would have normally been a thirty minute ride was cut down to fifteen, and every minute counts when reuniting soldiers with their families. Thankfully, a short ceremony later... and I was in his arms!
We are back to facing the world as a team, and have only grown stronger during this deployment. Just when I thought that I couldn't love him anymore or that our relationship couldn't get any better, it did. This song sums it up pretty well...
I would like to thank my "sister" Amanda for capturing these moments, BuildASign.com for offering FREE Homecoming banners for deployed soldiers, and all of you for the support and love you have shown us! I don't think that any of you will understand how every little bit of encouragement and love affected us. I can honestly say that blogging and YOU guys got me through this deployment. Thank you just doesn't cover it, although I wish it did.
