noexno pep talk, round 2


so, i am pretty stoked i was able to contribute another pep talk for other allison’s noexno project this year. head over and check it out if you haven’t already! if you want to dig into the archives, you can also check out my pep talk from 2012. so vintage now.


welcome home william

today the soap i used smelled exactly like the hand sanitizer required for entry into my brother’s wing of the hospital. it took me back and took me forward. i can hardly believe how much time has passed and how much time has flied. friday is my brother’s last day in the marine corps.

there’s sending him off to boot camp:

there’s one glimpse of him in boot camp:

there’s him graduating from boot camp:

there’s him almost dying (but not from the war):

there’s him surviving:

there’s him loafing around being bored:

and now, finally, there’s movement onto the next adventure. cannot wait!
