I love my veteran :)

Happy veterans day!

Being so familiar with the military community I really do appreciate all the sacrifices made by our military members and their families. Ryan and I were apart for about ten months when we was in Japan and that was the hardest ten months of my life! Plus we were both away from our families for three years while we were in Japan, and then another nine months while we were in Texas.

There are so many of our friends who are in for life and have been away from family for years and will be for many more years to come. I couldn't imagine being away with the boys growing up. But I appreciate all of those who make sacrifices every day so we can have the basic freedoms we do.

Here is a picture of me and Ryan right after he graduated from basic, he was 17 and I was 16

Thank you all of our military men and women who have served and are currently serving now. I couldn't even begin to list all of the people I know in the military right now and deployed right now. Thank you thank thank you!!!

Love Love ♥
