Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Wishing you a Happy early Thanksgiving!!! (even if this is a little late) The hubbs and I had plans to celebrate Thanksgiving tonight since we wont be together this year on Turkey day. Last weekend when I went to the commissary I picked up a few things so we could do a little thanksgiving dinner together. We hadn't talked about it at all, doing a dinner that is. It was pretty much just known that we were going to miss this holiday together. It was by our own choice at first and we were ok with that. Then come to find out the hubbs was going to have CQ on Thanksgiving. How he got so lucky is beyond us but some how he did. I felt awful for him but in a way things kind of worked out for us. I had plans to go on a trip with my mom and a few of our friends. So I didn't feel completely horrible for leaving him. Although still I don't think it helped much. It's a big Holiday and he was going to be all alone babysitting watching over a bunch of Privates. 

Our dinner was simple and perfect for the two of us. There wasn't any big elaborate planning or prepping. It was put together within about a hour & half and we were eating shortly later.

I love this man to death and any time we get together we try to make the most of it. Life on the trail is crazy and the hours they work are horrible. So we make moments like tonight special in our own little way. It may not have been your typical family thanksgiving but for us, just being together and being able to celebrate was enough. As we know and have many friends that are separated from their loved ones this holiday season.

I'm so very thankful for the life the we have together and everything we have been through and even thankful for whats to come. Its a journey and I couldn't be more blessed / excited to be able to spend it with my best friend.
