I still remember those 9 months and the overwhelming emotions I went through. I know firsthand how it feels to have someone you love serving our country, and at the mercy of our military. Because of that time in my life, I have a different understanding and respect for what military families go through.
As I've mentioned several times in the last month, one of my very best friends left for the Army about 3 weeks ago, and even that short time has been hard.
Me and Javi at his suprise going away party.
When he first left, I ran a contest to honor and thank a military family. Yesterday I had the HUGE blessing to meet Jarrid, Amanda and Jameson, the winners of that contest. I was totally blown away by them and I am so glad that I got to meet them. Jarrid is being deployed in only 7 days, so keep them in your prayers.
Here is a couple of shots from their session... many more coming soon!
Isn't their little boy adorable? I got more expressions from him!!!
And for those of you who I know will ask, yes, these are really their eyes! I can see where Jameson gets his gorgeous eyes from!
Thank you to all of our military and their families!
