Deployment

Six Months Later

November 11, 2015

Roughly six months ago, 204 days to be exact, a very teary me left A at the airport.

Last week, a very excited me got to pick A up at the same airport.

The time that came between those two trips felt both very long and very short while I was in the middle of it and I was beyond ready for it to be over. ย But as I pulled up to the airport, it still didn’t quite feel real that he was going to be home.

Of course, it all became very real as I saw him walk down the hallway. Luckily, I didn’t poke anyone’s eye out when I flung my sign and ran-walked to go meet him.

All those people had no idea just how big of a moment was happening around them. Take my word for it when I say that was the best hug ever.

A big thank you to all my sweet readers who have followed along with me the past 6 months, keeping me sane, reading my rants and even helping me narrow down sign ideas!

What’s next? Well, I’m off to celebrate every day that A is home after being separate for so long. We’ll mix in a vacation or two, celebrate our first wedding anniversary, take part in some great seasonal activities and spend lots of nights hanging out on the couch. ย In short, we’ll just be together and that’s enough for me.

Have a great Veterans Day! Please thank the veterans in your life (and their families) for their sacrifices.
