Hey guys! I know it seems like I fell of a cliff and let me tell you, life has been pretty crazy. The Sailor and I bought a town home in May that I am in love with and very proud of. So we moved in May 11th and have been making it our home for most of the summer. We did lots of yard work, bought and installed a dishwasher and hung up a lot of photos. It's still a work in progress, but we're very happy and comfortable with our home for at least next three years.
First time homeowners!!
We also went on my annual family beach trip, which was awesome to see my whole family together in one place and off of work. With me living in Virginia Beach and all six of us (including the Sailor) working different schedules, it's gotten harder to find time to get together, but we make it work at least once a year.
The Sailor has been working hard at his shore duty command teaching engineering to other sailors, and I got to celebrate my first full year working at my job and even got a raise! It's been a great, crazy, travel-filled summer and it has finally slowed down so that the Sailor and I can focus on us again and recharge. Now that it's almost fall, and we have gotten into a groove again, I'm excited to put my focus back on writing. Hoping you all had a wonderful summer and are getting ready for the fall season!
