Welcome Home!!

My one and only brother has been deployed in Afghanistan for the past 7 months. He returned "home" to Germany today. It's been a long, emotionally draining 7 months. Welcome home, Ryan!! My prayers continue for all of our troops and their families. May God bless them and bring them home safe!!

STAMPS: Winds of Grace, Happy Harmony, Occasional Quotes, Well Scripted
INK: MArina Mist, Rose Red, Choc Chip
PAPER: WW, Marina Mist, Rose Red
