I Need Change.

I've really come to the conclusion, over the last couple of weeks, that I am a change/adventure seeker. I get so bored doing to same thing, in the same place for years. I jump at the chance to seize any opportunity. I need a sense of adventure in my life.

For example, Jesse told me about a job opportunity for him in Hungary back in February. It involved us moving to a place where there is no housing on base. We would live in the town, see the local doctors,shop at the local markets, etc. I told him immediately that he didn't have to tell me anymore, he should volunteer to go if he wanted. I was all for it! Didn't happen... I was slightly bummed.

Jesse went down to New Zealand/Antarctica when Hunter was six weeks old for a month long trip for the Air Force. I decided on the day he left, a Thursday, that I wanted to take Hunter and go, too. We left that Sunday. (Talk about a stressful 2 days trying to get an infant a passport asap!)

I am leaving tomorrow to go visit Jesse while he's deployed in Turkey. I am so excited to see my husband, I can hardly contain myself. I am also really looking forward to experiencing a Muslim country and such a difference in culture. I cannot wait!!!

Jesse's enlistment is up the beginning of February. He could get out of the Air Force at that time. My vote is for him to stay in. There are so many different factors that go into that opinion, but one of them is my desire to live a life of adventure. I want to move around, experience new places, meet new people, and not know what the future holds. The idea of that excites me.

  2. I relate to this sense of wanderlust. Stillness often feels like staleness to me. Of course, that's only when I get a chance to really get reflecting, which is not that often these days. But when I do, I remember the goodness of hopping on a flight on a whim. Spending a summer on a small island in British Columbia. Living in Japan. I tell myself adventures are yet to come, and they are--but they certainly feel more imminent than those I get the sense are just around the corner for you!

  3. wow, i hope to see lots of pictures of turkey! have a blast :)

  4. It sounds like you are living an adventure. My husband isn't in the military but has a job that has moved us all over and we are currently in France. I'm loving the adventure of a foreign country and love the exposure that it gives our son (who is only a month younger than yours!)

  5. Can't wait to read all about Turkey!!

  6. I have a friend like that, she loves to go everywhere! And it looks like you & your husband and his job are a perfect match for that too. Enjoy your visit & Turkey! :>

  7. I know how you feel. I get bored of the same old thing and welcome change and adventure. You, however, are much more adventurous than me. To travel and live in different places sounds wonderful but I'm so much more a home person. I would miss my family and friends too much. That's me though. I say go with it girl. Travel has always been high on my to do list.

    Thanks for linking up!


Jesse is active duty Air Force and is originally from southern Minnesota. He has also managed to become a follower of just about every hobby known to man (which drives his wife crazy!).

Henry was born on July 4, 2007. His hobbies include playing with his squeaker toys, barking a little girls, dock jumping, going to the dog park, and being spoiled rotten by his grandparents.
