A year ago yesterday we welcomed Elliott home from Egypt. The Army sent him to Egypt just five short months after we were married and nine long months before his daughter was born. He left on the 4th of July, ironically. On July 3, 2011, he came home to his exuberant wife, darling new daughter, and a very, very grateful extended family.
Now it's July 4, 2012, and we've been reunited for a whole year. How fast it's flown by! We have our ups and downs in marriage and life, but every morning I am so grateful to wake up next to my husband instead of across the world from him. On this day of all days we have many reasons to be thankful for our military!
