welcome home, soldier!

we have been up and about since 4:30 this morning and at 8am we got quite the holiday wish come true. my wonderful fiance along with about 300 other indiana national guard soldiers returned home safely today from a 9-month deployment. we got to spend one precious hour with our soldier before he and the others had to get back on the bus to head out to fort atterbury for demobilization. but in the next couple of days, they will be home sweet home, and boy does it feel good. i am loving every minute of it, i cannot imagine how they must feel.
eric's niece, lexi, happens to be in the same 1st grade class as the daughter of an indiana news reporter, so here we are making a little appearance in the news story on theindychannel.com:
eric is all smiles to be home and we are all smiles to have him home. 
shout out to you, hubby-to-be. let the wedding madness begin! <3
