Yellow Ribbon Photographers

Hey there!  And Happy Wednesday!  You know I’m fan of celebrating the military holidays on this blog, right?  With Memorial Day weekend just around the corner, I thought it was an appropriate time to share with you a little bit about an organization I recently joined that supports our nation’s military service members.  Our nation’s heroes.

A small organization called Yellow Ribbon Photographers.  All members agree to donate one 1-hour long photo session and some prints to service members about to deploy.  After having gone through a few deployments myself with my Sweet, I know firsthand the power of photographs.  When I feel like the sky is falling and I’m the loneliest girl on the planet, I just look at the candid moment’s Jesie has grabbed of me and John and I’m instantly uplifted.

It’s a bit risky putting this out there in one of the largest military communities around, but I’m willing to take on as many sessions as I possibly can.  If you know anyone about to deploy, please have him or her contact me so I can capture the love shared between his family.

And because posts are better with pictures…

In a time when we are so engaged in war to protect all that our flag stands for, I tend to think of the phrase “love and war” when I see this image.

    This post means a lot to me. We both have a huge place in our hearts for soldiers. In fact, you should be proud to hear that Levi (my sweet baby brother) has been accepted into flight school! With that, cheers to our nation’s greatest. And thank you.

    Urging China and ASEAN to enhance strategic planning, Li said the two sides should, under the guidance of ASEAN-China Strategic Partnership Vision 2030, synergize the Belt as well as Road Initiative with the ASEAN Vision 2025, as well as strengthen the building of the three pillars — the political security, economy as well as trade, and people-to-people exchanges, so as to lift China-ASEAN relations to an higher level.
