Jacksonville, round 2!

When John and I got married, we agreed the plan was to get to as many duty stations as possible before we were told where to go. As luck would have it, we're repeating here in Mayport just 7 years in. It's alright, though, as it's been a blessing in disguise to be in a comfortable place with John gone so much. I think it means we've come full circle Navy style so now we're free to get on with the show!

I honestly never could have asked for such a beautiful, fun (read: crazy), loving family from a chance meeting at Beef O'Brady's. We had as much fun as two people, head over heals in lust (ahem, love) could have in just two months. Romantic walks on the St. John's, nights on the beach, dinners at anywhere from the Chart House to the Ale House, bar hopping at the Ritz, The Pub and so many more other random places.

Never did I realize where the Children's Museum was, or the book store with the coolest train table, or the best kiddie care at the gym was. I had no idea what the name of local hospitals were, or the mommy's group or even why people bought memberships to the zoo. Now, I know.
It's been a wild ride and I expect much more for the future!
