Home Sweet Home

Hey everyone!

I finally made it home last night around 8:30, we pulled into San Diego and flew back to Virginia Beach. It was a great home coming! I was so glad to see my family, who waiting on me with a huge bouquet of yellow roses (which I know mean friendship, but are my absolute favorite).

I will still not be around the of the week too much, as my hubby and I are taking a much needed vacation to the Poconos for about four days. We went a few years ago for our anniversary, and we are going this year again for the same reason, even though I missed our anniversary for being out to sea. It was April 3rd.

Thank you so much Penny for the beautiful card you sent me, I will definitely have to set a trip down that way after my deployment next year! The card came right on time, because it was coming near the end and I was feeling like it was never going to end.

This trip was crazy! We first set sail thinking we were just going to hit a few ports and go to California and come home. But God had other plans for us, as we were called to help the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake. This was one of my proudest moments of being in the military. Because we were the first to respond (USS CARL VINSON) and make such a huge impact and save so many lives! So many people came together in different ways. We had people filling up tons of jugs of water as well as dropping off food and bringing people back to the ship to perform emergency surgery.

After a few weeks of being out there, we set sail to Rio De Janeiro, then to Lima Peru. I will update later on those places with pictures when I can.

Just wanted to let everyone know I was home safe and hope to get some scrapping done soon after spending some much needed time with my family.
