Happy 4th of July, everyone! I'm really missing my love today... This is the first 4th of July we've spent apart... and this time last year was when he proposed to me. I last spoke to him last Wednesday, but since then I've heard that it's been a really rough week for his unit in Afghanistan. They lost another Marine and have had many more injuries. I'm praying hard everyday and so very thankful that the man I love is over there fighting for our freedom every day! I LOVE YOU, JOSHUA!!! ♥
Sooo I do have a patriotic themed care package planned, but I'm going to combine it with his birthday package (July 25th) to send later this week. For now, this is a package I sent awhile back that I wanted to share. The theme of this one is "Counting Down the Days," and it has Joshua's #1 requests... socks and pictures of me. Haha. It's so weird to take/print pictures of myself to send to him, but hey... what my man wants, my man gets. Anything I can to make this deployment a little easier on him! (And for you pervs out there, they are all FULLY CLOTHED & CLEAN pictures of me. I'm not sending anything that could be intercepted by terrorists or dirty Marines! lol)
Have a happy holiday, everyone! I'll be staying in this holiday... getting projects done and organizing for my big move when my love returns. Semper fi!
