Oh Happy Day.

Two weeks ago today, Chris came home. 'Twas a happy day indeed. Here are some pictures from the day, taken by the fabulous Rachel Kuchar. Check out her suh-weet photography blog here!

The day started out bright and early as the ship was expected at the pier around 9am. I was wide awake, dancing around the house at 6am and on my way to the base by 7:15.

We all attempted to contain our excitement as we waited for our guys to show up.

My friend, Amy, was especially excited as she waited to introduce her beautiful daughter to her daddy for the first time. 

Then finally, we saw the ship headed towards us with sailors in their whites manning the rails. 

I found Chris way on the other side of the ship and he made his way to stand right in front of me as we waited for his turn to come down. 

Once I found him, I couldn't stop looking at him and the smile wouldn't leave my face. 

He finally was able to come down off the ship (it wasn't really that long of a wait... but it felt like it!) and it was all smooching from there on. 

We came up for air eventually. 

And we lived happily ever after.

And now for some housekeeping. I've been getting spam on my comments lately, so I decided to up the comment security. So, now you have to type in a word verification. Sorry guys, I know that's annoying but you'll deal. :) Don't let it keep you from leaving me lots of delicious comments. 

Also, you'll notice that I added an email address over there on the right side. Shoot me an email at aisletoaloha[at]gmail.com if you've got anything you wanna say! I luurvve getting feedback from my readers and this is just another way for you to contact me. 

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
