The price of freedom is not free. Soldiers and their families know that more than anyone. In this collection of photos we are honoring, admiring, and paying tribute to those soldiers, veterans and fallen comrades who have sacrificed so much in the name of freedom. Sacrifice comes in many forms. Some that we may not ever be able to actually see. For that, we are eternally grateful for their service.

I'm a married, stay at home mother of 4, with a lot of crazy going on. Being a parent is so rewarding, but very exhausting! Ha! My husband is a musician/entrepreneur with a lot going on, so I manage most of the day to day and happen to find a lot of humor in all the chaos. If the choice is laugh or cry, I'll choose laugh every time. :)
