Settling In

We took a walk after dinner last night, and my husband and I chatted a little about anything and everything when I looked up at the sky, at the crescent moon and stars, and said “I really like it here.” He seemed somewhat confused. “Really? It’s hard to tell.” He went on to tell me […]

While a bulk of the unpacking has been done already, there are still some odds and ends that don’t have homes, or organization for those things (so they’re sitting in boxes until I can figure it out), and our garage has been untouched so far (yikes!). Plus, we’ve done NO planting whatsoever (which is SO unlike […]

The House

It was 6 hours from where we once lived to the area where we were moving. Just long enough for our butts to become numb but not so long that we were antsy, thankfully. We’d nervously planned our first official weekend of house hunting with our new realtor on the east end of town. Neither […]

Yesterday, a few of the San Antonio bloggers came together for a “Brunch Send Off” for me and my friend Claire, as we’re both military wives and both our families are both moving away 🙁 I became super excited when I heard our brunch would be held at the Mad Hatter Tea House – to go to a real tea house and […]

The Story of Our First Home Purchase

This post is brought to you by Genworth and Brandfluential. When the orders finally came down to leave Fort Polk, we couldn’t have been more excited. Finally, after three long years stuck in the woods, secluded from civilization, we were leaving! Hooray! I swear, my husband practically showed anyone who he came across that he […]
