The Countdown Begins

Well, its done. He's gone. Even up until the last minute, it didn't feel real. Its still sinking in. 

Currently I am driving down the I-10 headed back home to AZ. Its surreal. 

He got a huge kiss, a smack on the butt, and a "See you later baby". 

The last few days have been amazing albeit hectic and we enjoyed every second we had together. 

I'll be MIA for a bit since I have about 2,000 miles more to drive but thank you everyone for all your sweet words of advice and concern. 

All you Lovelies make my heart smile.

I always think that I'll go home if/when my husband gets deployed. Have a safe journey. I think Nov in AZ is an awesome time of year.
