Husband and I recently took a picture that’s been 5 years in the making. In almost every unit that we’ve been in, they let families/couples take pictures in front of the jet for Christmas cards or family photos. And every year since we’ve known each other, there’s been some reason why we couldn’t have our picture taken. One year we found out about it after the fact, a couple years Husband was away for training, and last year I was out of town for work. Every year when we’d get Christmas cards from other military friends smiling in their token picture in front of the jet, I was so envious. Finally, this year we got our picture! I know Husband wasn’t excited about it, since it involved three things that normally don’t appeal to him: 1) smiling (nicely) for photos, 2) going into work on a day off, and 3) being the focus of attention. He was a good sport about it, though. I’m not sure how the pictures turned out, but I’m certain I know who had the biggest smile in the picture.
