For 21 years I lived in the same bedroom in the same house in the same state. My life was orderly and mostly predictable. Then I met a soldier who proposed within four months of meeting me and carried me off into the sunset.
Or more accurately, carried me into a world of unknown acronyms, long separations and lots of hurry up and wait. In five years we've moved seven times and lived in six homes across three states. I've become a master at packing and can bubblewrap a plate like nobody's business.
I'm from the north and he's from the south. I have four siblings and he has one. I drive an automatic and he drives a standard. I love snow and he hates it. I love the dishwasher and he likes hand washing. Despite our vast differences, we produced the worlds most adorable child. She answers to Annabelle, AB, Belle Belle, Sesame and Princess Bubblegum. She's so sweet I could eat her up with a spoon.
Still nosy and want to know how we met? Look no further- Part 1 and Part 2. Yes, it's in two parts because brevity has never been a strong suit of mine.
