Life has been moving quickly! Thanksgiving was wonderful. We cooked our first turkey and Thanksgiving meal as a married couple and it turned out fabulous. I am finally two weeks away from finishing this semester and I can not wait to be done. We are preparing to visit our families back in Georgia for a pseudo holiday vacation. It will be a busy trip but we're both very excited. I have been trying my best to stay in the holiday spirit and think I'm doing pretty well. I'm sure the water works will come out at home though! :)
Despite the ever-looming deployment, I am very thankful to spend the holiday season with my wonderful husband! Being together makes this year infinitely better than last year. Last year our Christmas Day together consisted of a phone call which spanned 7,500 miles. While I was extremely thankful for that call, being able to spend Christmas with him this year is priceless! I will savor every moment of hand holding, holiday movie watching, gift shopping, cookie baking, snuggles, and laughter!
