I have decided to take part in So We Don't Forget every week from Lynnette's blog. It is a GREAT way to remember things that have happened in our life as a family. This week the topic is:
Tell us about your first home after you were married.*If you're not married - tell us about a home that you've lived in that you have special memories of.
Our first home after we were married was in San Diego. It actually was an apartment in El Cajun, CA. Chad and I were married in January 2002 and didn't actually live together until June 2002. After we got married he had to go back to the USS Constellation in San Diego and I had to finish up my last semester At UW-Oshkosh. Chad moved into our 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment about a month early and started to set it up. He bought the bed, and living room furniture. It was a good first place for us. It had a living room, patio, small dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
It was nice because we got put in the area where most of the older people were so it was really quiet. It was also really good because Chad deployed about a month and a half after I got to San Diego and was gone for 7 months. I felt safe living around the older people. Even if we had one really weird lady that always wanted to be up in everyone's business!
