Happy Homecoming

Today I had the pleasure of meeting a sweet Army wife at her hubby’s homecoming!  Blessed to have the honor of capturing this day for her!

This week has been the hottest yet this summer, and today was no exception!  It was actually cooler outside because of the breeze vs inside the hangar, so we didn’t mind waiting outside!

Because the Army Post is redoing the airfield, our soldiers now arrive at the hangar via buses!  In the past, I had a great dislike for these white buses as they always were taking my man away, not bringing him home!  Today was much happier!

We saw him get off the bus and this smile says it all!!  They are HOME!

Sweet friends that help us get through the long deployments are why we call them Army Sisters!

In each others arms again!  Her eyes are such a gorgeous blue!

Thank you for letting me capture this moment for you!

There is nothing like being at a military homecoming ceremony!  I always get teary eyed when I attend one!

I would love to chat with you on Facebook ~ or follow me on Pinterest!  See what a “few of my favorite things” are!

Blessings & JOY ~
