My Marine

It's Veteran's Day, and while I've always appreciated the men and women who have served our country through thick and thin, I have developed a deeper appreciation since meeting Mark and listening to him talk about his time overseas.

Mark is a Marine, and has served three tours in Iraq. I didn't know him when he served, but I know (and love) the man he is because of it. And while it's hard for me to imagine everything he had to do, and the way he lived during his active duty, I'm grateful for every minute, and thankful he came home safely. Plus, where else do you think he learned his Rambo moves?
Thank you to all the Vets out there. Especially my Marine. I love you all.

And if you read my blog at all, you know I'm incapable of being serious all the time. So do you want to know another reason I'm thankful Mark is a Marine?

He still fits into his Dress Blues. HELLO man in uniform :)

*Also! If you are a Veteran... Applebee's is treating you to a free meal today as a thank you! Go enjoy one-- you deserve it!

Live & Love,
