After we dropped him off Sunday night the kids and I went back to our hotel on post and then headed home Monday morning, Monday by the way was KS and I's 9 year anniversary. Its amazing how fast the time has gone when you are looking back on it. We knew within three months of dating that we were going to get married. Most people thought we were crazy being as young as we were, 15 & 18, and already talking about marriage but we just knew we were meant to be together. The funniest thing is that I remember having a discussion with him early on into our relationship and we were talking about him enlisting in the Army and I told him point blank if he ever joined I would leave him b/c I would not be able to handle the stress from that. If only I had known then what I know now... I would have had him go ahead and enlist right out of high school and we would already have 8 years under our belt.
I did get a wonderful anniversary present last night, and it wasn't even from my husband. The amazing woman who took our pictures before KS left also did an "ACU" photo shoot for us during Exodus. She posted some sneak peeks for me to enjoy last night, so I figured I would share a couple with you.
This picture makes me laugh every time I look at it. I had put the hat on myself and was quickly informed that I didn't do it right, so he had to fix it for me and put it on "correctly".
