Today’s Photography Friday is a bit more personal in nature than usual, but I couldn’t help but share these gorgeous pictures celebrating an equally gorgeous moment. My brother is a pilot for the U.S. Navy (anchors aweigh!), and he’s been been deployed for most of this past year on an aircraft carrier all around the world, but mostly around the less friendly neighborhoods. He and his shipmates miss holidays and birthdays and all sorts of everyday momemnts so that we don’t have to.
A few weeks ago he came home safe and sound, and his wife enlisted her good friend Danielle Gonabe to capture the moment (military wives and moms around San Diego, check this girl out). The girls couldn’t have looked more lovely – and doesn’t this kind of make you want a pair of polka dot platforms? And doesn’t my brother look a wee bit like the Iceman?
Congratulations to my brother and his entire carrier, couldn’t be more proud of you guys (and girls)! Welcome home and Bravo Zulu!
