I decided to try something new on my blog and participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge. From what I understand, they post a topic every week and you have one week to post a picture and write a little bit about what the topic/photo means to you.
This weeks prompt is kiss
When I looking for a photo to pick out I of course wanted a photo of me and Jeremy. We have so many pictures of us kissing, from engagement photos, wedding photos, anniversaries, holidays, and just random moments.
I decided to pick a kiss photo that had the most meaning to me, because it was a kiss that I anticipated for 7 months.
Our first kiss after his Afghanistan deployment in 2011
I love this photo because you can almost see my smile in the kiss.
Deployments are hard. There are the missed holidays, the days where you feel like your life is falling apart, the days where realize you’ve forgotten what their touch feels like.
But after all of that, there is the homecoming. And it’s beautiful. To know that you’ve made it through one of the most challenging experience a couple could face.
To feel them in your arms again, to feel their lips on yours, to be complete again.
I think a homecoming kiss might be the most emotional kiss a person can have. It was certainly mine.
