- Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country
We’d love to honor our hive veterans, and hive’s loved ones that are veterans today on the blog. If you’re a veteran, or if you have a veteran that is close to you, we’d love to share a picture of you at your wedding on the blog later today. Post it here and a little about your (or your loved one’s) service.
Thank you and your family for all the sacrifices you’ve made for our country…we honor you today, and every day.

Is it horrible that I cannot find a decent picture of my brother and I at my wedding besides the family pics? Here is one of him and my mother. My brother is 24 years old and only 10 1/2 months younger than me. He is currently surving in the US Marine Corps. He did a tour in Iraq in 2007 and spent the last 7 months training the afghan army before returning home at the end of October – He signed up when he was 17 and just re enlisted! we are so proud of him.
My Brother in law was also in the Marine Corps and did 2 tours in Iraq right after 9/11. He is now a Cop. Pictured with him is my amazing Father In Law who was in the Navy, graduated from Annapolis and saw combat in Beruit. So Proud of our Military Family!
since none of these have me and my husband in them here is one of us and my Brother-In-Law sorry its a back shot!

I don’t feel comfortable posting a picture of us online, but my Darling Husband is in the Navy and this is our first Veteran’s Day with him actually being a member of the armed forces.
I’m so proud of what he does and it really is a humbling thing to be married to a man with such a drive to protect our way of life and to ensure our safety. He is my hero, my inspiration, and I get my strength and any bravery I possess from him.
It’s also a very sobering day for me. While it’s a day to celebrate what my Darling Husband does for this nation, it’s also a very real reminder that he WILL be going to do business with our enemies someday. The nature of his job is such that he will deploy and show force with or without a war. It’s bittersweet because while we celebrate their bravery, it’s a reminder that he must be brave in the face of danger. Danger that may mean he does not come home.

My husband has been in the Navy for six years. He is a submariner. The time spent apart is hard, but I am so proud of what he does. Here are some of my favorite pictures of him:
This was with his little sister, who was our flowergirl.
This one was an engagement photo, not a wedding photo, but I just love the look on his face. He is such a kind, gentle soul. He is my hero, and I am so happy to be his wife!
