Homeward bound!!!


Say it isn't so... but it is! After 9 long months apart {and 5 of those spent in Afghanistan} he is coming home!!!!

Steve should be home the 28th or the 29th of JANUARY!!! I'm so excited, but of course these next two weeks are going to go so slow. The best thing about the homecoming is the newness again. Of course, I'll have to share him with the three crazies but getting to kiss him again after such a long time apart.... It will be good. Not that I promote separation, but the home coming definitely has it's perks!!
Steve I found this song from Plain White T's and I love it. This ones for you Sweetie!!

Leah,

Thank you so much for your comment. It is Crazy what a small world it is that when you write something it can reach so many people.

I am so sorry for your family's loss. Benji was an Amazing person and I always wondered what may have happened had I not been dating Heath (my husband now) when I first met him.

He truly will be missed by so many including myself and my sister. After my post my cousins emailed me to let me know that their step brother Brian Giessing was also friends with Benji and his father Auge was the one who did his head stone.

He was such a Great guy and my heart goes out to all of your family. Next time I am in town my sister and I plan on visiting his graveside.

BTW I like your blog and cannot believe how much your hubby reminds me of Benji. I just may have to become a blog stalker. ;) Or at least a reader.
