This will be my first deployment since having children and to say I am nervous is an understatement. This news has really put a damper on my holiday spirit. I am not wanting much under my tree besides happy children on Christmas morning and family memories that will get me through the next year. He will miss next Christmas, so I feel like this one must be good enough for two.

  • Mary Margaret / 12.08.2016

  • Sophie Schrader / 12.08.2016

    I really want a Barbour jacket this year! x

  • Truthfully… With the way our finances are… Hubby being laid off recently! My mom was the usually the person who always made sure I had presents still. She was in a motorcycle accident on September 4th. She’s suffered massive brain damage and undergone multiple brain surgeries. She’s been transferred to a rehabilitation/nursing center. Shes come so far in such a short amount of time but she will most likely never be the same. So this year Christmas is just not as joyful as previous years. So I have no idea… I’m not expecting much. I would love a phone call to my mom and a new phone I could give her that she can relearn to use!

  • Joanna A. / 12.09.2016

    I am hoping for some new books! 🙂
