Welcoming my husband home after 4 1/2 months!
With my husband's return from army basic and airborne training my life is slowly going back to normal.  I love having him back home.  
It's funny how now that he is back it seems like he was never really gone....almost! :)  Those days of depression, sadness, loneliness, and the world creeping by seem a distant dream.

I have to say I was sooo happy to finally get to see Justin in his ACU's (Army Combat Uniform/camo) when he graduated Airborne!  I've decided this is my favorite uniform. The dress blues are nice, but only reflect ceremonies and formalities of the military. The ACU's reflect the battles and danger these men will see and the sacrifice them make for our freedom.  Also I must admit...my husband looks darn sexy in his ACU's too! :)

So now that I have him back...I am putting him to work! :) 
Today our plan is to get lots of yard work done.  
Tomorrow we plan on going to the beach with friends!
And on Monday...I think we will sit back, grill, and remember those who have died for our freedom which to to often take for granted. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and take a little time out to honor and remember those who have sacrificed themselves for our country and freedom, and the their families that remain. 

Happy Memorial Weekend.
