I was just reading an old friend's blog, actually she and her husband both have one. I met them back in 1994, Val and I used to work together, became fast friends. We were a lot alike, energetic, bubbly, friendly and a passion for writing. Eric & Val are a longtime military family and for now are stationed in Germany. Eric is deployed right now over in Afghanistan. They have two great kids too.
Val and Eric have this chemistry, they get along so well, much in love after 20 years of marriage and I always knew they would be great parents. The way they talk about their family, their kids, you just know they have a happy life. It's not often you see two people that have so much fun together, enjoy each other's company and really enjoying life. In pictures their faces are just so lit up, you can actually feel the happiness and warmth. Not many people have the chance to experience that. When you do, you just have to hold on for the ride.
