The One Where I Introduce Myself.
This is not the first blog I have attempted to commit myself to. Time and again I would create a blog, write a few posts, and then find myself too busy to keep it up. So then I would find myself creating another blog and making promises to myself to uphold that one. But, nevertheless, I would forget all about it and look where I am now. I am not saying I will do the same thing as I have before, but it may happen.
I will start how I always do. My name is Kelli-Anne Pace. I am currently 23 years old and I live with my husband and 2 month old daughter in Kings Bay, Georgia. My husband is a Supply Officer is the U.S. Navy and is currently filling orders on a submarine. I am originally from Winchester, Massachusetts and although my husband lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts for the majority of his life, he claims Louisiana to be his home.
We moved to Georgia when I was roughly 5 months pregnant. We had moved from Groton, Connecticut where we had been living in a Navy Lodge for 3 months. Before that, we lived in the beautiful city of Newport, Rhode Island. Now, Winchester is not a city, but I went to college in Cambridge, Mass and very quickly adjusted to city life. I never considered myself to be a “city girl”, but when we moved down to Georgia, I almost immediately felt out of place. Southern living is so different from living in New England, and for the most part, I don’t mind. However, there are some things that I could do without. I am sure I will get further into details with these things in later posts.
Being married to a sailor means my family and I will be moving constantly (about every 2 1/2 to 3 years) and each time I will have to readjust to my surroundings. This way of life is not for some people, but I rather enjoy. Yes, sometimes it can be quite annoying to have to pack and unpack all of our belongings, yes, I get overwhelming feelings of homesickness, and yes, it is really hard to make and keep friends, but I make all these sacrifices because I love my husband. It is in no way easy being a Navy Wife, but since it is so easy to love my husband, I gladly follow him where his job takes us.
So what will I be talking about in my blog? I made a list!! (I love lists… I don’t know how I would get through one day without a list… or a calendar!)
- Being a new mom
- Being a military wife
- My Pinterest adventures
- My experiences in Georgia
And, day to day stuff that I feel I can talk about! Until then, I bid you adieu!
