Last week quite a few families got to welcome home the other half of their heart as many homecomings took place and sailors were able to hug their loved ones again. But for those families with a service member still deployed, it can be hard to count your blessings when there is still such a gap in your heart. However, for the Polk family, they are choosing to stay positive and stay focused on all the amazing things happening in the future (and there is a LOT of amazing stuff coming up for these guys!).

Describe your perfect Saturday together:

As a couple drinking wine and smoking cigars while watching a movie. As a family enjoying the outdoors either at a park or in our neighborhood.

We love to watch movies and eat food. Places we like to go? We have yet to travel but we are looking forward to taking a cruise and seeing the 7 wonders of the world!
