50mm friday - first flight


David flew from Guam to Cairns, Australia last night-- his first flight as CAPTAIN!

I am so proud of him. Not only of his hard work and skill, but for the fact that he has sat as First Officer for YEARS when he could have upgraded to Captain long ago.

Why would he give up the prestige, pride and pay of Captain to sit as F/O for so long?

FOR US.

Family, quality of life, many extra days at home that we wouldn't have together if he had upgraded sooner. Thank you for that, baby.



I'm linking up with Hallie Westcott's 50mm Friday. Feel free to join us!

Congratulations to your husband!

I remember Cairns well! I got to visit it in my senior year of nurses training. It was hot like Africa and I loved every minute of my time there.

Did you really take a picture of half of your hubby's face or did you crop it like that? I like the way it looks in that collage.

That is great that he did that for your family. It's also great you can be there with him now in support of his new position.
