Key West was on our list of places to visit in Florida for quite awhile and we finally made it this past weekend. Both of us visited before but only for a day or two. We spent three nights on-island meeting new friends, reuniting with old friends and helping other friends get engaged! Although it … More Key West
We came, we saw, we conquered. You may remember my first Camp Blanding post. The first Blanding experience was life changing and I couldn’t wait to get back for part two. Most of the class came back so it was great to get to see them again and we made some new friends from the … More Camp Blanding Part II
Last year, we were informed that Dave’s duty station was changing. Not that we were transferring but that the duty station was literally moving. Long story short, it turns out it’s a regional move but the new location would mean at least a three-hour daily commute for him, no thanks. The cherry on top of this … More What I’ll miss the most…
Have you ever experienced the perfect wedding? I’m not talking the best flowers, hairstyles, and flawless make up. I’m not talking horse drawn carriages and glass slippers. I’m talking the wedding where you leave at the end of the night and your heart is truly full of joy for the newlyweds. Dave and I had … More It is well with my soul

This one was family motivated but I did actually spend the night in Elk City back in 2011 on my cross-country road trip with my parents from Ketchikan, AK (sea assignment) to … More Rollin’ with my Oklahomies
I can honestly say I never thought I would ever want to visit the MidWest. However, it is really the only part of the US that I had not seen up until last week. My husband had to fly out for training and I needed a change of scenery! It didn’t hurt that my cousin, … More Kansas City!
I honestly think the airlines should offer some sort of “freqent drop-off/parking/pick-up” benefits. Now of course, this is completely ridiculous and just my sarcastic way of indicating that I perform a lot of drop-offs and pick-ups between Dave’s frequent and sometimes extended (but sometimes brief) travel and family flying in and out. Since the new year, … More I should get frequent chauffeur miles
Dave and I don’t really have traditions yet. We actually planned our wedding to occur before the busy season kicks up for him at work so we have a better chance of having anniversaries together. We also do our own thing for Thanksgiving. No crazy traveling like Christmas, just the two of us, the dog, … More Sanibel
