Checking In

Hello everyone!  I just wanted to check in and let you all know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...although it may feel like I have!  I'm pretty ashamed that I haven't blogged at all for over a month now  :(  Sometimes life just doesn't give you blogging time though!

Things have definitely changed since Mr. L got out of the Navy.  We definitely miss the Navy, but we're glad to be out of it too (probably me more than Mr. L though, to be honest).  It's easy to still feel connected here in Virginia though thanks to the many, many military bases around us.  It isn't the same, but it's a lot better than being isolated from the community entirely like we were in Alabama.

Living in Virginia has been a wonderful adventure so far and we are loving our new home.  It's taken us a little while to settle in (we've already been here six months!) but now that we can navigate around without the help of Waze, we are really enjoying this part of the state.  Being so close to the ocean again is something I didn't realize my soul needed!!  It was absolutely the top thing I missed about Hawaii (and still do!) so I'm glad we're near the beach.

In the meantime, Mr. L is loving his new job.  We weren't sure if he would, but that fact has just made things that much easier for us.  If he's happy, I'm happy!  And then I've been spending most of my days getting involved with the grassroots campaign of a presidential candidate.  I don't really want to go into details about it since I like to keep the blog mostly free of politics (if you follow me on Instagram, though, it isn't that big of a secret!  haha), but suffice it to say that I am having a blast holding events, volunteering, and meeting all kinds of wonderful people from around the entire state of Virginia.  I'm experiencing a bit of a political awakening and it's very exciting!

For now, Mr. L and I will continue to settle in and get our bearings on this new life of ours, and hopefully I'll be back up to blogging speed soon, especially since I still have to talk about all the beautiful things we've seen in Kauai and then more on Oahu!  So stay tuned :)
