Finally Getting Closer

And just like that, we are finally in the excitement stage of this deployment. I wish I could share the exact countdown with you but I want to keep him and his unit safe so I will just leave it at that we are close. Not extremely close but close enough to finally use the word close if that makes any sense.

For each season of this deployment, I have given myself something to look forward to and used it as a milestone. From sending my first care package to getting something for the house we wanted. I have been waiting for some while now but the time to buy my home coming dress and make home coming signs has finally come and I could not be more excited.

Until now, homecoming has felt like some far off, distant idea or hope. But having a homecoming date has changed everything. Its a reality… our reality. He’s coming home. I am filled with excitement yet still have not fully processed it. I can only imagine the excitement I will continue to experience as the date grows closer. I’m pretty sure I am just as excited/anxious (if not more) for his homecoming as I was for our wedding. The time is not flying by but I am grateful that it is not dragging either. Between homecoming house decorations and finishing touches on the house, hopefully it will be enough to keep me preoccupied till he gets home ❤️
