United Again!!!

I had a LOVELY weekend in rainy Chicago! No matter the bad weather, I was able to see my love! And he looked SOOO GOOD! ;) Ha! Happy graduation Jared! On the 18th Jared graduated from Basic Training and is now off to Virginia Beach for A-School. I am SO proud of him. And though I'm sad to be back home without him, we are to somewhat of a halfway point, and we had such a fun few days together, that right now I'm just feeling grateful. Here's just a few snapshots of our days as a couple again....



Marching in to the graduation ceremony! It took me a long time to find Jared in all that white. I had a slight panic attack until Nicholas pointed him out for me. ;)


It was really neat to see all the men in their handsome uniforms. Here's Jared, his Dad, and brother Josh.


Here's the fam that could make it. (We missed you Hil and Alicia!!.....and Cooper!)




Jared and a few of his Basic Training buddies.


Cute niece, Isabel!!!


Here's Chicago!!! Rainy, humid, hot Chicago. But I couldn't help lovin' it! ;) We were able to visit the Hancock Observatory and the Navy Pier!









I just wanted to say again how proud I am of Jared and how cute I think he is. I definitely miss him but, this'll all be great in the end! We had a very fun weekend together, short as it may have been, and I've decided I cannot go another 3 months without him so, I'm already planning my trip to Virginia Beach. ;) Oh and...keep an eye out for Jared's posts. Now that he has computer access he's going to start giving us all updates of his own. ;) I know I can't wait! Love you Babe!

So I loved your post so much and Jared is soooo cute in his little navy uni:] But i am even more excited to tell you that we are moving to Virginia until October.....WE WILL BE ABOUT 40 MILES FROM VIRGINIA BEACH......You can stay with us and I can drive you to your hubby or you can borrow our car for the day or few days whatever you want!! I want to talk to you and get an update. I do not have your number anymore cause remember I got a new phone. It is Aarons number if you have that one. Get it from Paige or something cause we have got to talk! Anyways I love you and cannot wait to hang out in Virginia:]
