. .I guess
I guess you can never really get "used to" deployments. No matter how many times your husband leaves, it always hurts. But after time, you learn a thing or two. Jessica seemed to learn that you don't have to arrive 2 hours before the buses or vans pull up. In fact, I was waiting for her at her husband's homecoming for at least 90 minutes, lol. In all honesty, it was so peaceful! I didn't mind one bit! I don't get a whole lot of time alone and watching cars pass by was oddly therapeutic. When Jessica and her adorable kids did show up, I welcomed their smiles and energy. Just minutes later, their Marine arrived and put months of waiting to an end. I am always honored to be a part of these special moments and want to thank the L Family for being fun, loving and most of all genuinely nice people.
Here are a few shots from their homecoming story :) Enjoy!
