It's Not Goodbye...

Today marked the first day of Jacobs second tour in Afghanistan. I've been spoiled for the past few weeks having him around and saying our "see ya laters" today was hard. I pray for a quick and safe return for him and his fellow Marines. Words cannot explain how proud I am of him and to be his wife. Melvin and I miss him so much already! Here are some pictures I took today that I wanted to share with you. 

Here were a few of his bags loaded up, ready to go.

Daddy and Melvin


A big thanks to the USO! Jacob received lots of goodies before he took off!

We love you Jacob!

  1. Thinking of you and your family, Emily. I will keep Jacob in my thoughts. You should be proud, what a brave and honorable husband you have! & if you ask me, I think it takes a tremendous amount of courage to be a military spouse! xo
