Home Is Where The Navy Sends Us

If you are in the military, you know truer words have never been spoken. When I was younger, I always imagined settling down in a Dallas suburb with my husband and raising our kids. The great American dream, right? I love the idea of our children growing up in the same town and being close to their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. That's the way I grew up, and it was amazing. Parker's career has meant we get to live out a different dream. While we aren't settling down and buying a home in the great state of Texas, we are getting to travel the world and experience places we otherwise wouldn't. Now that we are living this crazy Navy life, I wouldn't have it any other way. A house doesn't make where you live a home, the people you live with do. So for us, home is where the Navy sends us.

I saw a cute little sign craft on Pinterest a while back that I had been wanting to try out (a few of my friends have already done this), so this past weekend I finally decided to do it. I didn't want to copy any of the designs I saw, so we love that no one else has one quite like it. I'm no Vincent Van Gogh, but Parker and I are pleased with how it turned out and are excited to hang it on the back porch in our next home.





So there you have it! Home is where the Navy sends us, and as long as I have Parker and that sweet furball, I'm home! :)
