Hi there! I’m Amanda, a 20-something Virginia native on the adventure of a lifetime. Five years ago, I met my husband at a debate tournament in college. I never could have guessed that he would later become my husband and carry me off to the distant and foreign lands of Florida, Texas, and now Okinawa. I knew that marrying a Marine Corps pilot would change the course of my life, but I was not sure how I would reconcile the life I had fallen into with the one I had always planned for myself. While today there is not much I can say that I have figured out, I can tell you about where I am, how I got here, and what that has meant to me. In short, I am a lucky girl, figuring things out in paradise with the love of my life. This is my story, as I live it.
