We consider ourselves so blessed to be able to go back home for awhile. We've missed family and friends and just the charm of the South.
The hard part about military life is making friends and leaving them. Even though I don't think California is one of those places I would want to spend the rest of my life in, I have made some wonderful friends whom I will miss terribly.
On the up side I can hardly wait to be with my parents and siblings and for my kids to experience living near their cousins and Grandparents. In fact no one in my family has even met Hannah! As we prepare ourselves for this wonderful change all I can say is,
"Mama, I'm comin' home!"
