Thank you for visiting my blog today. Originally it was started in 2006 as a way to chronicle our overseas adventure, but it has turned into a place where I share my heart after my husband's untimely death at the age of 40. You can read more about his brief, but fierce battle with a rare cancer on his caring bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/rob_murphy.

We spent Thanksgiving with Bob, Elaine, and Jaime & Adrian and their crew. It was the first Thanksgiving in a long, long, long time that we were with family and not Air Force family. It was a bittersweet reminder of how much we miss that military life, but also how wonderful it is to be living near family again. It was also the first time in over 15 years that I didn't have to make the turkey! I was only responsible for desserts. The meal was fantastic and my kids had an amazing time getting to spend hours with their cousins. Sarah was smitten with the newest addition, Joshua, and I suspect he appreciated the "nap buddy" too.
Bob is Rob's Dad, Elaine is his wife and Jaime is her daughter.
