PCS Season: Smooth Move


Mark and I had our "Smooth Move" class earlier this week. I prepared by writing down some specific questions that we had and I'm really happy that I did. Had I not, I'm not sure we would have gotten any information for us, specifically. The class wasn't very helpful, a lot of "call this person if you have questions about this... contact that person for info about that..."

Oh, The Place We Will Go... South Africa


I dream about traveling all of the time! I pin things, watch travel shows, read travel blogs... you name it! I thought it would be great to gather some of my favorite *dream* vacations in a small series here on Mr. & Mrs. O.

5 Things on my Okinawa Bucket List


1. Whale Watching. >> I've tried for the past two years to go, but the weather has gotten in the way. Fortunately, I'm going on a NIOSC field trip next week and I'll get to check this off. (cross your fingers that the weather cooperates!)

What I'm doing about PCS Season

At my birthday party, Mark gave me a card and inside were our new orders. We're moving! We have a tentative date and it's happening this summer. Craziness! So, what am I doing right now? Well, I'm dying a slow death of uncertainty stopping to smell the roses (or lilies in this case) and taking what steps I can towards a seamless move.

A Maternity Shoot


My brother-in-law and his wife are expecting (very soon) and I had the pleasure of taking their maternity photos over the weekend! I am, by no means, an expert in photography but it is fun to get my camera out and practice. I'm so appreciative to have family that trust me enough to take photos of such an important moment in their lives.
