Since Hubs is a Navy man we've had the opportunity to live a few different places. We've mostly been on the west coast but spent one wonderful year in the DC area - so much fun, living more urban. We also had an amazing tour spent living on the tropical island of Okinawa, Japan. Once I was able to adjust (another story, another time) our time away from "the States" was a huge blessing. Our family had the opportunity to explore another culture, we made incredible life-long friends and my children were able to live in a very relaxed family environment. The base we lived on had a crazy amount of children and just outside our gate there were parks, the ocean, amazing food and a Starbucks for when I got home sick. God most certainly planted us there and I will be eternally grateful for our years spent living so far from home.
