One of our favorite parts (okay, probably our favorite part) of Navy life is moving. I might be certifiably insane for saying this, but we really do get so excited each time we move. Moving can be seen as a huge inconvenience, and understandably so. It's not fun to pack up your entire house and then unpack it all, switch all of your utilities, and forward your mail. I am not going to sit here and lie and say that it's not an inconvenience, but I do mean it when I say that the positives outweigh the negatives.
Getting to explore a new place is just plain fun. We enjoy meeting new people and have met some of the greatest people on the planet through the Navy that we never would have known otherwise. Most people wouldn't really consider getting to live in Kingsville, Texas hitting the jackpot. It's a small town in every sense of the term. We don't have a Target. We don't have a mall. We don't have a Costco. We do, however, have some of the nicest people I have ever met. We have quick and easy access to the beach. We have sunny days almost every day of the year. Those little things make living here such a treat. Of course we are biased because we are Texans through and through and genuinely love this state so much. Seriously though, it's been an awesome place to be stationed. We will be moving at the beginning of February, and we will really miss this place. We are excited for our next adventure just up the road in Corpus Christi, but it's sad to close the door on this chapter in Kingsville. The Navy truly has sent us to some awesome places, and I know it's only going to get better.
Parker and I took the Jen pup to a random little beach we found south of Kingsville this weekend and had the best time. We really do feel so lucky to live here. I mean seriously, how great are these views? We definitely don't have the nicest beaches, especially having lived previously in Pensacola, but a beach is a beach is a beach. Am I right?
We are excited for our next adventure, but we will definitely miss this place. We are so happy to have gotten to live in Kingsville for the past 9 months. They flew by, but they were a blast. Thanks, Navy.
