An Update

Things are getting very hectic around here! Our 30 day vacate notice has been put in, the movers are scheduled, boxes filled with stuff have taken over my apartment, and my husband is checking out of everything. Needless to say this poor blog has fallen to the wayside.

We are both so glad to leave the Marine Corps behind us and start a new life back home. I am so thankful for the many wonderful people I've met while we're been stationed here. I don't know how I would've gotten through so many lonely nights without them. I've learned things about myself and about my marriage I never would have if we didn't have this experience. Most of all I'm ready to leave ALL THIS MILITARY CRAP BEHIND. I am so sick of worthless field ops, long days of Mr. Marine at work for nothing productive, mandatory family fun days, and 24 hour notice deployments.

The most important thing is that I'm ready for us to buy a house. I've been saving for a house before I was married and since getting married the fund has grown and grown. It'll feel so good to have sheep, goats and chickens running around in my own yard. People laugh at me but all I've wanted to be since I was little was a homesteader. Looks like dreams are coming true.

I love all of you and appreciate you reading and I'm sorry I've neglected this blog for so long. I promise it'll pick back up once things calm down a little.

Until next time,

xoxo Stacie

  1. Eeek - that's so exciting! You have no idea how jealous I am that you'll have a lil patch o' farm to make real food from. :)

    I'd DIE to have chickens...and a compost pile. So for now I'll live vicariously!!
