We are fast approaching the end of this deployment cycle, yippeee!!! I am a hopeless romantic when it comes to these situations, tearing up at the mere mention of reuniting family with deployed spouses, especially when it comes to kiddos! Our reunion will resemble these photos come Monday or Tuesday when Adam returns from the Phillippines. Thank you Lord. Bring on the homecoming love!


This is my all time favorite, sailor planting one on a nurse in Times Square, classic.

Norman Rockwell's depiction of a Marine's homecoming, so interesting. My dad was a big fan of Norman Rockwell, had many hanging in his office. Note the Japanese Rising Sun flag in his hands. For more on this story, click here
