We got orders!!!!

In Moving on August 28, 2008 at 2:00 pm

I cannot tell you how excited I am about finally moving to our next duty station. While I love North Carolina (for the most part), I’m very excited about moving to Quantico, VA. Taylor finally received his orders there and we move the end of this year.

He will be going to HMX-1. I will let you google or Wikipedia it. Actually Wikipedia has a bit about HMx-1 and what happens there. To say the least, I’m very proud of what Taylor has accomplished so far in his Navy career. I’m trying to get him to blog, because I am not sure what all I can say about his new job.
So keep us in your prayers and hopefully we can see everyone really soon!

Well hello there!

So, this is all very new to me. But I’ve noticed alot of cool blogs and decided Taylor and I needed one 😉

Hopefully we can both keep the outside world updated on our busy lives…well maybe not busy…but always entertaining!

As many of you know, Taylor is in the United States Navy and I’m his Navy wife 🙂 We are currently in the great state of North Carolina…Jacksonville to be exact. Life here isn’t all bad, if you love traffic (rush hour is all day everyday!), Marines everywhere, really BAD drivers, aircraft flying over all day (sometimes so low, you feel as though the ground is literally shaking), etc… I’m not complaining at all…it just isn’t East Tennessee. But at the same time, I have a sense of pride living here. The American flag is flying every corner you turn, and knowing that 90% of the population have volunteered to give of their life for people they will never meet…it truly is awesome!

I work as well, at Bluff Ridge Apts. I’m an assistant manager there and loving every minute. I’ve met some amazing military wives. I usually only see the wives, since most of the men are either deployed or working insane long hours. I can’t describe everything that I do. Some days I feel as though I’m babysitting…”No, you cannot put your down comforter in the dryer, it has the washing/drying instructions right on the tag” or “I’m sorry you have developed a ‘fly’ problem, but maybe you should take out your 500 bags of trash” (you think I’m kidding???) But I truly love helping people find their perfect apartment, whether it’s at Bluff Ridge or not. I think I’ve found my true calling. 🙂

Well, I will close with that. Hopefully we can continue blogging. I will try to get Taylor on here to update everyone on his new job in Quantico, VA. Soon it will be on to our next duty station!

Oh and here is a recent picture of Taylor and I, ya know incase you forgot what we look like 🙂

Night all!
