Jimmy is in the news!!!

Really awesome news, Jimmy was featured in Stars and Stripes the military paper! I'm soo proud and excited. Here is the article on it and there are a ton of pictures of Jimmy.
The article starts out saying this, "...James Rivers became the face of the U.S. military’s humanitarian relief efforts for hundreds of Japanese people Tuesday."

Jimmy was also featured on Photo 1 and Photo 2. The pictures on here are very small and it says Marines BUT I know it is him. I could pick Jimmy out in a wears waldo book.hehe I can tell from gear, the helo and also there was another picture of one of his best friends as well. He doesn't really toot his own horn so as you can see I am tooting it for him. I'm soo proud!

What I'm loving today...
*I love my man. Seriously, could I have got anyone better? I think not. I am a really blessed girl.

*I'm loving that I get to leave for South Dakota this Saturday. I get to see my niece and my nephew AND my newest nephew who is on his way within the week!

*I love this rain we have been getting even though Ohio is nothing but mud, the rain helps me sleep at night. It's weird sleeping since Jimmy's not with me.

*I'm loving that we have Starz on TV free for a whole year. I've been watching new released movies since I got home from Japan.

*I'm loving that I got a good nights sleep last night. Melatonin does this girl good.
