Oh Happy Day.


 Giddy. 

Excited. 

 Running Late. 

I was all those things on Monday morning when Chris' ship pulled in. Yeah, my friend, Krynn and I were just parking when we heard the cacophony of horns announcing the arrival of his ship into the pier.

 Whoops. 

So I slipped off my purple heels and we booked it. And boy, my heart leapt when I saw the bow of his ship slipping into place and I found my love on the deck, searching for me in the crowd. 





We've perfected silent conversations when he has to stand up in his uniform. He was cracking me up. 



Chris in all his bingo winning prowess, won First Kiss, so after the captain and the new dads came off, he got to come out before everyone else. And what a blessing that was, because man, it is so hard to wait for them to get off that stinkin' ship. 




My very favorite. I'm going to frame this one. It just makes my heart flutter.


Yes, I bought him a lei to coordinate with my outfit. Um, duh. 









I love having him home. 



Yep, that's the same post title I used for our homecoming pics post last year-- it's just so appropriate. If you haven't had enough gushy homecoming pictures-- check out last year's here.
