Memory Monday--First Home

hi readers! happy Monday! let's go down memory lane with this new link up...Memory Monday with my friend and host Retired NOT Tired. 



hmmm, this one is interesting for me b/c technically i do not own a home yet, so i do not have a first home, but i will talk about my parents home which in a way is my home too :) being a military family, we never had a first home until recently when it was closer to retirement from the Navy for my mother and she knew where she was going to settle down. then came the purchase of my mom and dad's first home and i guess mine too. it has been nice and so far we have had it for 10 years. it just so happened that the last duty station she did was the place where she wanted and did retire in so buying a home made sense. it has been nice to have a home and not have to move every 3-4 years into a rented home or apt on the base. i never did have the family/childhood home growing up, but the memories were still the same and made in our rented/on base homes.

  1. Aww! We bought a house at our first duty station in GA. It's where the two older girls kinda grew up. But like you said, regardless of where the house is, I'm hoping for those same memories.

  2. I just can't imagine moving around like you did. My husband is an Army brat, so he moved around quite a bit as well.
