One Year Florida-versary! | Anchors Aweigh


One Year Florida-versary!

One year ago today, we left all we knew in Texas for a new adventure in Pensacola, Florida. Looking back, it couldn't have been a more blessed year. We created a new normal for ourselves and Jenny, made great, lasting friendships, and have grown so much in our relationship with God and each other. Though I still get homesick and have a hard time dealing with the separation from our families sometimes, we have learned to appreciate the time we get to spend with them and modern technology (thanks Skype and Facetime). There is a good chance we won't be here much longer, so I want to describe some of the highlights over the past year in pictures. Here it goes! (Warning: there are a lot of pictures!)

This list doesn't include countless movie nights, dinner dates, game nights with friends, and just the little stuff that makes up our daily lives. Looking back on our year in Florida, I feel nothing but blessed and truly undeserving of all God has given us. As always, I can't wait to see what the future holds!
