2011...This year has been in the back of my mind for over a decade. When I first got engaged to Chris, 2011 was in the back of my mind. When I first held Emily and Casey in my arms for the first time, 2011 was in the back of my mind. When I drove cross country, up and down the East Coast and all over the gulf coast, 2011 was on my mind. Why? you ask. Because this is the year that my dear husband can FINALLY retire from the United States Navy. It feel so weird now that it is finally here. I had always imagined us getting ready to get out. I never imagined us living in Utah or not being able to decide where we want to retire. We have always thought that we would be back in Maine but times have changed and so has the economy. Unless something amazing happens, we wont be moving back to Maine and I am ok with that, which is the strange part. Over these 20 years traveling this amazing country, I have learned that our little family will thrive wherever.
So here's to 2011. May this year be AMAZING for us and hopefully all we ever dreamed of!
