WE ARE MOVING TO...
To be honest, excited and happy weren't on my list of emotions when we first found out. The other two likely locations were Washington State and San Diego. We were hoping for one of those so we could experience the West Coast for awhile - they just seemed more exciting. Of course, this is all part of being in the Navy and all, but it was still kind of let down when we first heard.
I'm still really up and down a lot about moving to Norfolk soon, but overall, we're both feeling really good about it. We've started looking at places to live (with the extremely appreciated advice of a few people), and I've even started to apply to a few holiday craft markets. I'm such a product of extreme internet use - I've been compulsively searching the internet for all sorts of things about the area, like every sort of thing. I have such a random, pieced-together list I'm keeping of things I'm excited to go see or do. It does calm my nerves though, to be able to rifle through so much information about where we'll be living.
So our next few weeks will be crazy, probably in ways I don't even know yet. Douglas graduates from training September 28, and then we'll be on our way. I'm sure I'll write a longer post about Saratoga and how much we'll miss it, but I'm really sad to leave here so soon. All that being said, I'm hoping to post fairly regularly through all of this. It's going to be really exciting - so much is happening so fast. And I know I'll want to share a lot of it. So stick with me here. I think it's gonna be good.
On another note, I'm Cut Out + Keep's Crafty Superstar this week. My five-year-old, past-covered self would be psyched. I'm pretty psyched, too.
