missed. three years in a row now. we have not celebrated our wedding since the day of it. so much has changed in three years. he switched units and branches. i switched jobs and started my photography business. we welcome in our home a handful of a puppy and recently our first son. we have spent more time apart then together, because of working two different shifts, drill on weekends, then 7 months away for training and now months of deployment overseas. but the love i have for him still grows each day. he has provided so much for our little family and i couldn't be more proud of the man he has become and the daddy he will soon be when he comes back home to us.
but tonight, i hope to venture back to the place where we shared our "i do's" and danced the night away in each other's arms with our friends and family near. it will be the closest i can get to having him here with me. after i plan to dig into a huge fudge chocolate cake and moscato wine to cover up the tears of missing him on special days like today.
