In January, we packed up our lives in San Diego and in early February, we hit the road. Ryan drove his truck with my car towed behind from San Diego to Philadelphia! All in all, we weighed 12,000 lbs. Wowzers!
We tried to break our trip up a little bit...here we are at the Grand Canyon!
We were moving because my husband's orders changed from San Diego to Norfolk and we were getting married on February 20th in Philadelphia!
Here we are...
Our trip across the country involved outrunning/getting caught in a huge snow storm. Think back to last February...no school for a week, record snow fall in the Philadelphia, D.C. area...scary to drive through/be a passenger in.
Here is a photo of Bonnie & Jared in the snow! It was Jared's first Philly snow!
With marriage comes adventure, right? Does a visit to the ER count? I think it does! Ryan got sick and completely dehydrated to the point where his fingers were so thin his wedding ring could fall off. We were stationed in the middle of nowhere at this point, so I drove him through wooded, curvy, back roads to a hospital. He got almost 2 bags of fluid and was feeling studly (Thank God that was it). Lesson learned: Go to the ER sooner when nothing is staying down, extreme thinness occurs and you have no idea what to do. I was scared.
This is also the month that I said, I love you and see you soon to the love of my life. Deployment Days suck. Deployments suck. I apoligize if I offend anyone with the word "suck" but it is totally proper in this context, believe me.
The fall months involved lots of studying and bonding with new friends! I turned 25 in November and received this beauty from my loving husband! He is the best!!
