A Blog post dedicated to just the personal memory lane of our family and the time we spent here at Fort Drum. Sadly this is missing our first year hear due to only having prints of those pictures. But hey you get the idea. 😉
This are images from the past two years. I did not take all of these images from where taken by other photographers currently at Fort Drum or were here at the time. (Jessica Souza Photography, Kristin Charles Smith Photography, Brittany Besaw Photography, and Karen’s Captured Moments). Also I did try to keep pet photos out for the most part. This is mostly just the humans of the family. 🙂
Making this is very weird for me, I am so excited to leave this area. I am overjoyed to be moving to Washington, bigger and better things await us there and everyone knows it. But over the past 3 years some much has changed. We added members of our family and we have grown and matured so much. When we moved here I was 18. 18 guys. We were so stupid. Lol. We have grown up so much over the years (I mean heck last night I renewed the registration of my car a month early and increased my insurance coverage!). When I look back at where I was when we first moved here it is crazy. Whew, glad I changed that around.
There have been some serious bumps in the road here, but all in all I feel like this place has done us a great service. Within all the suck we have dealt with and the hardship, we have become such more more and because of it our life ahead will be much smoother. We spent the past 3 years making mistakes really, whether in personal life or even in business. But other past 9 months the after effect of that has hit me hard. We are actual adults now to be taken seriously, respected, and held accountable! It might not sound like such a big deal but remember, we were 18 and 20 we got here. Christian hadn’t even had his own apartment thanks to being away at basic, and we were always right by family to be able to bail us out when we wanted to act without thinking. Now, we get to do the bailing out!
Maybe I am just being silly about this. Lol. But Fort Drum will always has a spot in my heart for helping us grow, in maturity and in size. Lucy, and Addie are both in our family because of Fort Drum. It is were my baby was born. It is were I met some of the best friends I have ever known who will be my friends for life. I may not miss the cold or the boredom, but I will miss (some) of people and memories we have here.
Ps there would me more pictures from the before I had a full frame camera, but it is being a butt to load and nobody got time for that. Haha.
