This blog is a collections of letters my children and I are writting to my husband about his most recent deployment. Please note that dates are being changed to follow OPSEC rules and keep my hero safe. Please feel free to write a note to him in the comments. When he has internet he will check in, when he does not I will print them out and send them to him.

To my readers,
Did that throw you for a loop? Can I tell you how weird it is to not say Dear Rob? My hero actually told me he misses my daily letters to him so maybe they will come back. Okay I have a few minutes so what about right now.
Dear Rob,
Hello babe, it is so nice to have you home. You have been home for 10 days now. I know things have been interesting.
First let me apologize for last weekend. What was I thinking leaving you for seven hours with four children? I guess I should have realized you had not had the time to really check in with the kids. Thank you for being so patient with me.
We have been so busy doing things this week that we have not had time to really set and talk. Honey, I cannot tell you how much it meant to me to set on the porch and talk to you. I really plan on trying to make this a priority.
Things feel normal right now, you and Michael are off fishing and the girls and I are relaxing around the house. I hope you found a great place to fish and you guys are having fun. Thanks for remembering the sun block by the way.
I am sorry I was so short with you about the chocolate cake. It really was silly. I really was mad that the kids would take advantage of you and do things they know better than to do.
Rob my heart is breaking that our weekend getaway fell through. I know you are as disappointed as I am. Can I tell you that I respect you for standing up for what is right for our children even though it means you lose out on a weekend away. I support your decision.
It feels so good to have you in bed next to me at night, or setting next to me at church or driving me around.
Thank you for driving us to Chapel Hill for Grace to see the GI doctor.
I love you babe, I just wanted to take a minute to say welcome home!!


  1. These letters are beautiful. What a nice blog idea.

  2. How I enjoyed this blog~it is now one of my favorites. I love how you love your husband. What a wonderful world it would be if all couples were as close as you two are :) I smiled when I read that he missed your letters, and you wrote to him at home. What a sweet heart he is. Your blog is just beautiful. Thank you for finding me, and commenting, so I could find you. And, we have six daughters, and three of them are Marigrace, Hope, and Whitney-Faith :)
