My husband is in the Army so we have lived in a few different states. I think I’m the perfect fit for an Army wife since every time we move I see it as a fun adventure. When we first got married we lived in Washington, DC. We loved living there since it was our first time away from home. We felt so independent and grown up. Then the Army sent us to Hawaii, which was also pretty awesome. We loved the weather there and made some really great friends. Now we live in Texas, which is also a pretty nice place to live. Coming from Hawaii, Texas is quite a shock. One of the things that shocked us about moving here was that we learned we could choose our texas electricity providers. Other things that have caught us off guard are the heat and lack of rain. It’s so crazy that we’ve been here all summer and it hasn’t rained yet! It might take us a while to adjust but I’m sure we’ll get used to it eventually. When you have lived in as many places as we have you don’t have much of a choice.
