I'll start off telling you how we became Mr & Mrs. I'm 31 and he is 30, we were married on 10.11.12 (hehe...yep, it was on a Thursday), I live in WNC and he lives in Afghanistan. Neither of us have ever been married and neither of us have children (in today's world, that at 30 yrs old is almost unheard of). We looking forward to being able to live day-to-day lives together in Charleston in 2013.

As R&R's always tend to do, it passed entirely too quickly. Once again he was off to Afghanistan, but the wedding planning was on. We both had different ideas of what we wanted on our wedding day. I was the girl that never dreamed of ever being married period so the thought of having a big wedding was never a thought in my mind. He on the other hand, like the idea of having a big wedding and inviting all of our friends and family. Once the planning got into full force, we both discovered that even though, we'd love to invite everyone, it just wasn't feasible. So a small wedding was in the works and I would become Mrs Bratz in 2012 while John was yet home again on R&R. (more on the wedding later)
So here we are the beginning of 2013 and I'm a deployed contractor's wife. There's lots that I've left out in "our story" but I'm sure I'll get to those during the days that bring him closer to home. I long for the day to have him home with me. It's not easy, this lifestyle we live, but we know that it's worth it.
