It's funny how things worked out because I have married a Marine and lived in Havelock, NC and Swansboro NC now. Who knew that I would actually attend and graduate from University of North Carolina WILMINGTON ( the beach college) like it was in the plans all along? It's funny how things always work out.
I used to tell Chris while driving through Swansboro (when we lived in Havelock) on our way to Jacksonville for something to do that I would LOVE to live in a little oceany tourist town like this someday. Who knew that we actually would and fall in love with it, too six years later?
So I said all this to post all this:
And here, a SAILBOAT in the desert. Plus all the blues and a FAN from the Bahamas from my Bestie on her mission trip.
The desk was purchased in North Carolina for my birthday one year. As is the puzzle box Chris sent to me from Iraq that's sitting on top(another birthday present!). The soup cup I made at the ceramic shop on base aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
Or this picture? Our Besties && our precious God Daughter who was born and is being raised in North Carolina??
We shall never forget North Carolina and I don't think we are ever 'done' with North Carolina.
We have people waiting on us to come back...
They're running with excitement...
Smiling so and soo happy to see us again...(ok maybe NOT Nicholas Sparks..lol)
The Lady in BLUE, another BFF, Linda is awaiting my arrival to sell me Creative Memories things & so I can eat her grapes & M&Ms, too.
And this view was our view from 'home' for 2.5 years. It's no longer awaiting me.
