Join Me in a Toast

to amazing weather that lets me sit outside at a bar...
to Apple computers that work outside same bar...
to cool summer necklaces that go with everything...
to black and white photos that hide how tired my eyes are...
to the men and women who serve our country--no matter what service and no matter whether they're officer, enlisted, civilians--it's a big job...
and to my Air Force leaders who selected me for promotion!
I started out in the Air Force over 19 years ago and never did I imagine that I'd be this close to a possible retirement or that I'd progress from the life of a no-striper airman to potentially serve as a lieutenant colonel.  I love my career and leading others and I'm thankful everyday that they're willing and able to follow.  I guess those retirement plans can wait for a few more years.

I'm sure I'll have a few more thoughts on this momentous achievement but for now I'm just relaxing with a beer or two or three and reveling in the fact that life is good.

LOVE AND CHEERS!!

    What an amazing accomplishment, Jen!!
