virginia is for lovers.

Well, well, well. I do apologize for such a long break from blogging, but once you know what we've been up to in the last week, you'll forgive me. It's been a busy one...

We were in Virginia Beach all week looking for a place to live. And guess what? We found one!

It's a cute little three bedroom townhouse with a fenced-in back yard. And it only shares the garage wall with the neighbors, so hopefully, no more posts like my last one. It's in a cute little neighborhood that probably would be really quiet, except right next to NAS Oceana, which is the master jest base for the East Coast. We hope the constant sound of F-18's buzzing around won't be too much of a distraction. I don't think R could get sick of jet noise if he tried. Which brings me to my next item.

This was taken at a spot at the end of one of the runways, (not at our house, thank goodness). I have a feeling this is going to be R's new favorite place to take me for dates.

So we checked 'find a house' off our list of things to do while in Virginia. The next item on the agenda was to try and look for some job openings for me. And guess what? After a wonderful sequence of events that involved contacting a kind Admiral's wife who I met at a Purdue function years ago and telling her about my unsuccessful year of job hunting and my deep heart to serve people, I found myself with an amazing job!

It turns out she has a friend who runs a faith based non-profit, and is in need of an executive assistant to be her right hand man. And somehow, through God's planning, this awesome opportunity was handed to me!

So, our week was an absolute success. We even had time to hook up with some Navy friends we met while they were in Pensacola. Nothing feels better than having friends in a big city where you don't know anyone.

House? Check. Amazing job? Check. Good friends? Check. Now all we have to do is move!

I think I love Virginia already.
