Alive Day

It's 11:27 pm and J.R.'s second alive day is almost over. Two years ago today our lives changed drastically. In celebration of J.R. surviving the blast, we spent the day snowboarding and ended our evening with a couple of beers. I know J.R.'s phone rang continuously, and I think he was pretty thrilled that so many people-especially the guys in his unit-remembered the day.

Eventually I'll expand on the day, but now it is time to drag my half drunk, incredibly sore (I fell a lot), extremely exhausted body to bed.

Happy SECOND alive day my wonderful soldier.

I think it's great that so many people remembered and let him know they remembered.

Happy Alive Day, JR!
I always forget we're 6 months ahead of you. We hit two and a half years earlier this month.

My husband just had his third in April. We couldn't be together. It sucked. It's an emotional day though. There's a lot to reflect on.
