2014: A Year of Adventure

As I mentioned earlier today, 2013 was our year of love.

And 2014? Instead of resolutions, we are declaring a theme this year.

So let it be declared.

What a fun theme, you may be thinking. Well friends, it is about to get a LOT more interesting.


Maybe I should say, 冒険の年 instead.


It is {officially as official can be in the Navy at this stage of the game} official.

In late summer 2014, we will be making a move.



We don't have a ton of details yet, but A verbally accepted these orders, we have been in touch with his potential new command, broken the news to our families, and everyone is so excited for us.

We are excited for us too!

Well, my husband is super excited. I can see excited in the know, after the whole sell your first home, pack up your whole family's life and move it to the other side of the globe thing. Ha!

We weren't even really supposed to talk about orders until a couple of weeks from now, so neither of us were particularly emotionally prepared to deal with all of this in addition to the general holiday bustle. So our minds have been reeling, but in a totally ready for adventure and anxious/excited kind of way.

As always in the Navy, nothing is for sure until you are on board the plane...and sometimes even then, plans can change.

In any case, 2014 will indeed be a year for adventure.

Evelyn Rae is two, Liam is ten months old

...and my baby girl may very well start kindergarten in Japan.
