So long Norwich CT, Hello Little Creek VA
It has been a nice little visit to Norwich Connecticut. It is a beautiful area. Got our apartment in a nice area of town. Finally settled in with all the furniture, bedroom set and finally a mattress! Even have my closet organized. I like it here ALOT. However. Duty calls. Jason was unable to get permanent orders in Norwich. Which is a good thing for his career. He was able to get amazing orders to a operational unit out of Little Creek VA. That is where we will be heading in a couple months. I don’t know the dates exactly, what Jason will be doing or what will happen. But that is okay with me. I just need to start over again. Start planning my life around our new location. We will possibly be in Virginia for the next couple years.. (I am serious this time..)
I was aimlessly walking around the town of Norwich today. I took some pictures of my favorite places. The wharf down by the river. The main street. City Hall literally 500 yards from my apartment. The beautiful gardens and rocky hills as I pass. I pause and wonder what life would be like here would things have been different. I know this is good for Jason. I actually love the Northeast. But this is what it is. My home my family is with Jason now and wherever he is I am too.
I will definitely miss Norwich. The picture below is a street where Jason and I spend alot of time in the late afternoon for happy hour or late mornings for an irish brunch at the local irish pub. The community around here is so lovely. Everyone from my Mediterranean Homies, to the ladies at the local library. The women at the rectory at my local church St. Patrick and even the priest Fr. Tony has been amazing. I am so lucky in this short amount of time to have found such a community. I am sure wherever I go I will find the same. When I go to Little Creek it will be different I am sure not as nice as the people here. But at least it will be warmer.
So finally, I am looking forward to the change. Since the moment I met Jason, (It is after all today our two year anniversary)….He asked me shortly into our “courtship”…Will you come with me to California. Without hesitation I said yes. I knew. I knew that he was an amazing guy. That he would be the one for me. That was in May 2009. Since then we have moved from Maryland (where we are originally from)….to San Diego, CA (1 yr 1/2)…to Norwich,CT….now Little Creek VA….
Whatever happens wherever we go I know that everything will work out. I love him dearly and if he is gone I will start over and find another community…another little world of my own. Bailey will always be with me. My family will be alot closer. I will love it there in VA too. And best of all….PAIGE lives there!~ So in essence all will work out fine…
