It was just over a year ago that the Mr and I began our journey into Navy life. I’ve been thinking lately how thankful I am that his training so far has been a success, and how far along we’ve come. It’s been quite an adventure so far!
Before he left for basic training in Chicago for five months last spring, some family and my closest friends and I threw a going away party for him. I stumbled across these photos from that special day and thought I would share them, if you’d like to see…
We used red and blue glass, rope and burlap accents, and vintage photos and Navy prints to give it a festive maritime feel.
Some of the Mr’s favorite foods (Mexican market tacos, spiced rosemary cashews, and a special whiskey cocktail) made him feel extra loved.
Everyone signed a beautiful print I had found and framed (which is hanging in our bedroom), wishing him well.
One of the highlights was (of course) a fantastic photo booth by our dear friends. They even made the flag for the background by hand.
It was such a precious and memorable day. But I am so thankful that this year of separations and tough training has flown by so quickly!
Thanks for taking a look! Happy Monday. :)
