we couldn't resist

there is no place like home. for the holidays.
so after almost six months overseas, we surprised our families with an early arrival back to the states on Christmas eve. i didn't have my camera but someone snapped this the second we saw our families. it is worth more to me than almost any earthly possession.

i love belgium. i love what we went through there. i love the people we met. but, it feels more than good to live again in the land of the free and the home of the brave. nothing beats america. and nothing beats family.

happy new year all.
