This is the post excerpt.
I would like to think that I am adjusting quite well. One of my favorite things about living here is the transportation. All things that I'm not used to; taxis, trains, walking, and biking. Riding my bicycle just about everywhere is the most fun to me. My new home is about 3.5 miles away from … Continue reading Full Embrace
It's certainly been a while since I've blogged. As you can imagine, I've had a lot going on. We are finally out of the Navy Lodge and into our new Japanese home. Well...I am in our new home. The first night and every night since we moved in, I have been here alone with the … Continue reading New home. New adventure. New memories.
Well..it's been a few days, but I made it to Yokosuka, Japan! It's definitely different than living back home. Not like I thought it would be the same or anything. There's just a few things to get used to. I'm still trying to get used to the time difference. I sleep at normal times, but … Continue reading My first official post in Japan!!
This is will be my last blog post from the United States for a while. My first flight to Japan takes off in less than 12 hours. All of the stress and preparation has been worth it. I am so excited about this new journey that I am about to embark on. As excited as … Continue reading How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard? -Winnie the Pooh
1 week since my last post. The problem is that my weeks aren't very exciting. I don't want to bore you with my daily smoothie, gym, lunch, dinner routine. The big story this past week was my fishing trip! Little Brittany's boyfriend Travis is a huge fan of fishing. It's pretty much his career. Anyways, … Continue reading I caught nothing but a sunburn…
So, I'll start with the sad stuff... Jon left for Japan this past weekend. It was strange because not only have we already been living in separate states this past month, but I'm used to the Navy lifestyle of being apart from him for some time. The day before he left, I spoke to him … Continue reading BIG WEEKEND
Saturday, June 17th 2017. That was the day that one of my most special friends got married to the love of her life. Meghan Limke and I met when I started working at the dental office of Cottrell and Associates. Throughout the time I worked there, we continued to create a strong friendship and a … Continue reading Definition of a TRUE FRIEND: Someone who is as excited for your wedding day as you are!
This past wednesday one of my very best friends, Emilia, came to visit me! She came all the way from Fredericksburg, VA. It was nice having someone here that I could show my home town to. Even though the weather was terrible, we made the most of it. With her two beautiful babies at home, … Continue reading Gallery opening.
This post is about being home. HOME: A place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to. I heard complaints from just about everyone I grew up with about living here. We couldn't wait until we were old enough to finally go out and do something other than living … Continue reading “Every traveler has a home of his own, and he learns to appreciate it more from his wondering.”
Here I am again, back at Panera...using their free wifi. Doing the usual; downloading movies and typing this here blog. Is it bad that the manager knows who I am now?? It's actually been a busy last few days. (I never thought I would say that.) Lets see...where should I begin...? Yesterday was Memorial Day...which … Continue reading I love the familiarity of being home. It’s amazing how you can be gone for years, and you come home and still remember how to get everywhere.
