let’s just get it out of the way and into the open that yes, my husband is in the military. no, i don’t let that define who i am as a person. nor do we let it define our marriage. for those who do, please have a seat and i’ll get to you momentarily.
so about a year ago, i started this blog. i kept up with it and ended up having a good amount of followers and readers. but then i just got fed up. nothing ever seemed to just….stick. it probably stems from the fact that i’m one of the most indecisive people you’ll ever met. EVER. but i made a solemn vow to myself, my husband and certain important people in my life that this time around, it will stick.
so my husband and i conquered the first year of marriage. how about that? it’s insanely awesome to think back and look at where you were compared to where you are and where you’re going. in the first year of marriage, we faced so many things. living in crap-tastic apartments, buying a pug and having to dull out money we didn’t have to save his life in surgeries, finding out we have to PCS [move to another state, military style] next month, finding out my father-in-law has cancer [and beat it!], saying goodbye to friendships that were highly unhealthy… to just, changing as people all together. so instead of looking back on all of it, i want to really look back and see physical evidence of these changes. hence the blog. i guess it’s a good idea for family to pop in from time to time to see what we’re up to. but i guess we have skype and facetime for that, too.
okay, did you read that right? we’re moving to florida! wanna see a sneak peek of our new house? you know you do.
ladies and gentlemen, our new kitchen.
where i’ll be told to go in order to make sammiches, i’m sure.
i’ve even started to craft some things for the new house.
and i know you’re dying to see those, too.
i know there’s still a month to go before we head out to florida begin our next chapter in our lives. but honestly, my excitement has a lot to do with the fact that i’m elated to get out of norfolk. since i moved here, it’s given off bad vibes. maybe it’s the fact that its the world’s largest naval station, therefore there are so many different walks of life here. i’ll honestly never know. but in the time that i’ve been here, i’ve started up friendships and have walked away from the majority of them. i’ve started a business and have been pretty successful with it. and i met my soulmate. but at the end of the day, although i’ll be too far from my family… i can’t get far enough away from norfolk and it’s drama. hands down, i hate it here.
the women i’ve met on facebook that are in mayport have been so kind. they’re helpful and the best thing? there’s not millions and millions of them, like it seems out here. i’m pretty stoked to be meeting new people. but sad to leave the few out here that i actually wish to keep contact with. all the others? adios!
so now, you know a little about us.
and how excited we are.
and how my crafting new decor is a bit out of hand.
in the end, you’ll learn to love it.
