As I’ve mentioned a few times, I married into the military life.
J. Alabama was commissioned in May to be an officer in the Army. By taking the vows to be his wife, I also took the vows that I accept the terms of the military lifestyle.
To my surprise we received an email two weeks ago that is putting a little jump start to our military life.
He wasn’t projected to be doing the military thang officially until March of next year, so getting the news that we are to report October 31st was a little bit of a shock.
Thankfully though it does not affect my upcoming marathon. 🙂
Now we are a package deal — so it’s time to start packing our bags friends! And now that I’ve had a few weeks to think about our future I’m getting excited about this adventure to the South.
Oh yes, this born and raised Idaho Girl is starting the next chapter of her life with her husband in Georgia!
And I’m willing to put my beloved potatoes aside and take on the peachy life for awhile. Our stay in Georgia will be less than a year, and then who knows!
So needless to say, my life is more than just a whirlwind of crazy right now. Which I thought was going to die down after the wedding, but apparently not.
In a little over three weeks, I will be saying goodbye to a lovely place that I’ve spent roughly 28 years of my life.
I’m excited, scared, nervous….etc. So many emotions!
I think the military aspect has me the most nervous of all because I’m not really sure what to expect. But as any other unknown in my life, I’m ready to take on this adventure and learn as I go.
So come October 25th, I will say farewell to my family, friends and the land of potatoes, and road trip it to the land of peaches.
Be sure to follow me on my adventures of becoming a military wife on the run! 😉
Anyone know of any good races in Georgia in November or December?
