Military Spouse Appreciation Day Link Up

I decided to link up with Wife of a Sailor today for the Military Spouse Appreciation day.

I think it's great that we take a day out of our lives to say thank you to those who serve on the home front. Our spouses are the true heroes, running into a battle when everyone else is running away. But I also believe without their home support, those soldiers wouldn't be able to do as great of a job as they do. As a spouse a lot of times we are over looked (especially in the National Guard and Reserve) but I thank each and everyone one of you!!!!

Now if you are visiting from the Link-up, Welcome to My Life as a Reserve Army Wife!

I'm a 30 year old, Army Reserve Wife, mother, teacher, friend, and daughter. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 3 years (almost 4!). We got married at the court house in 2009, then had a second wedding in 2011 for all of our friends and family.
Our first Christmas together

Our second wedding
 He joined the military in college, before we met, so I kind of knew what I was getting into, that is until he was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011. I'm proud to say that he safely made it home in August 2012 and we have been adjusting to him being home and some of the invisible scars of being a combat vet.

The day he left for MOB site for his deployment

daddy and son reunited

together again finally

I am a teacher. I teach 7th grade Civics. I'm not sure who thought 7th graders needed to know civics, but they sure do not understand the mind of a 12-13year old.

I am the mother to two wonderful children who keep me super busy. We have booger who is 3 (almost 4) and Pretty Girl who is 1 1/2. Boy how time flies!!! They are the light of our lives and keep us on our toes 99% of the time. They are an absolute joy and I wouldn't trade them for anything.
