Right now, as I type, my husband is running around base - getting a few last signatures to finalize his AGR job. I felt like buying balloons and streamers to decorate the house because I'm so unbelievably excited for our future and so proud of him.
We've waited 8 years for today. There have been lots of tears (on my part), frustration, anxiety and a heavy sense of uncertainty.
Today feels like a fresh start.... everything is flowers and rainbows to me right now.
