sweet surprises

A couple months ago, a friend from Clarksville posted this on her Facebook page. Ryan and I completely teared up watching it. It's pretty awesome. The little doll, with whom the video opens, is also from Clarksville. Her elementary footage was shot at a school just down the street from my old apartment. :-)

Yesterday at the park, Teddy and I hung out with another mama about my age and her two-year old lad. After visiting for some time, I learned her husband has been deployed for the last seven months and will be gone at least another six. I can't even imagine. I struggle when Ry's out of town for a few days. Our military families are SUPERHEROS, no doubt about it.


  1. Awesome video. There is truly no greater feeling in the world than hugging your soldier when they step off the plane :) SO much joy, relief, love, gratitude, and excitement are released in that moment!

  3. Well... It's a good thing I have a box of tissues on my desk. Great post Katie. Xoxo
