It's been a year since I've come home.
So much has happened.
A lot has changed, but even more has stayed the same.
I was surprised at how understanding you were when I told you I didn't want to give up my career in the Marines…I was convinced that after everything, you'd want me to walk away from it all.
Olivia is happier than ever now that I'm home.
She's so smart and doing so well in school.
She's started begging us to give her a little brother or sister.
What she doesn't know is that we started working on that a few months ago.
We waited a bit until things settled down, and I started working in my new position as one of the instructors at Camp Lejeune.
We're telling everyone today…we decided to wait until we could find out if it's a boy or girl, and now we'll be able to tell Olivia that in a few months she'll be getting a baby brother.
Watching your face light up as we watched the ultrasound at the doctor's office made me remember so many things…
When we found out Olivia was a girl.
When I said yes to marrying you.
When I finally made it home last year.
And when I told you I was pregnant again.
All the little memories…the small reminders of this life we have together…the good and bad times we've been through…It was all those things that made the past few years bearable, and it's those small reminders that make the future so exciting.
Knowing that each and every day, there is something new for us to experience, something new that will become another reminder for us…of who we are, of where we've been…of how much we love each other, and how much our love will continue to grow each and every day.
