Hope you've had a great week! I'm going to skip right over talk of the election (can't we all use a break from that?) and instead say Happy Veteran's Day (slightly belated from Friday) to anyone of you who has served or has supported family members as they have served this great country. I am incredibly proud of my husband who served in the U.S. Navy for 20 years and retired as a Chief Petty Officer. He is the embodiment of patriotism and his love of country is unrivaled. I am so humbled by the sacrifices he made. Veteran's Day has passed, but if you know a veteran, it's never too late to thank them for their service.
Me and Robert - Circa 1992
Speaking of The Husband, he was in Plains, GA yesterday for their Veteran's Day/Fall Car Show. I decided against going because he left a day early (it was too far to drive up the day of the event) and it was going to be an all day event. (Hello boredom.) Well I am totally kicking myself now for not going! Because he met President Jimmy Carter! It was likely that President Carter would be at the show since he lives in Plains and has come to the show in previous years but it's not like Robert just saw him from a stage or something. No, he actually met him, shook his hand and they spoke. Robert asked the Secret Service if it was okay to take a photo and President Carter was gracious enough to allow it. He even posed in front of Robert's car.
President Jimmy Carter - November 12, 2016
I would have loved to have met him. He is a true humanitarian and has always seemed like such a kind and genuine man.
While Robert was hanging with President Carter, I was engaging in some retail therapy. I'm not a big shopper and when I do shop I prefer to do it alone and at my own pace. You ever have those times where you don't like anything you see, or nothing fits right, or it fits but you don't like the way it looks? Ugh, hate what that happens. Well, yesterday was the total opposite of that. So I came home with bags of clothes, makeup, shoes... success! I had a blast. :)
