Thank a Veteran today. Thank one every day.

Dear Veterans,

We honor you for the place you have allowed us to be in life that gives us liberty and opportunity. You are appreciated, You are loved and Your service has not been in vain.

Happy Veterans Day to my favorite Veteran... my Pappa.

And of course, my thoughts are always with those currently serving, like my hero, my older brother Marco who is about to serve another year deployment in Iraq. {this is his THIRD deployment} I need you close to me, but I guess our great country needs you a little more right now. God will keep you safe for us, I know he will.

last June on mine & darling friend's roadtrip of love, we made a lovely stop in D.C.

i finally got to see the Vietnam Memorial in person... and there are no words for the experience. No words.

i made an etching of my pappa's close friend who died in the war.

there really are no words to describe the feeling of standing in front of all the names of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

to say i was incredibly humbled is still an understatement.

at work, we have the eternal flame shining outside our building.

It's a beautiful sight.

M, i pray for your brother and cousin in-law every day too. every single day.

when you visit me in VA, we can take the train to D.C. and we'll go to the wall. promise me we will!
