Valentine's Day...

This past Valentine's Day was a very special time for Hubby and me.  Normally we don't believe in celebrating on this particular day, but this year we decided to make it a little festive.  I made chocolate-covered strawberries, (I say I "made" them, but I really just heated up chocolate and dipped the fruit in it.) and I bought a special bottle of bubbly.  Hubby filled our glasses and we made a toast: "To one year in one place!"

We celebrated the anniversary of living in our current duty station for one whole year!  This is a huge deal for us since this is by far the longest we have lived anywhere together.  Our previous stints at duty stations have been 8 months, 3 months, and 8 months. 

This is such a great accomplishment (in a very strange way) and made for a very special Valentine's Day celebration!


  1. Congratulations! Wow, I've known people who didn't live very long at some duty stations, but I think you won the prize. We've been so lucky...we're usually good for 2 and a half to 3 years. Hope you can celebrate year 2 next Valentine's Day!

  2. Woo hoo!! That is a big accomplishment in the military lifestyle!!! :)

  3. Thanks, ladies! In the military's defense, Hubby has been in flight school for the past 2 years which is why we've been moving so much. Either our next place or the place after will be our "permanent" duty station for a few years!


Thank you for taking the time to read AND comment! Your support means so much to me! :)
