looks like Valentines

I can not function...for two days now!!! Why? Sometime soon we will have to move. We are stationed at Ft. McPherson (Atlanta, Georgia) which will be closing July 2011. So within 16 months we have to move. Yesterday some overseas choices came out. We have already spent 7 years overseas and loved it, but here are our choices:

Youngson, Korea...we would go as a family for two years. We have been to Seoul and liked it...we are big city people. They even have brand new housing there. This is Steve's first choice.

Kadena, Okinawa, Japan...LOVE Japan. I was stationed at Yokota AB (Tokyo) but both Steve and I spent plenty of time down on the island. The base is's a fighter jet and tanker base, they have some of the nicest facilities in the whole Air Force.

3 bases in Germany...but we just left Germany 3 1/2 years ago not sure if I am ready to go back.

Vicenza,'s an Army Base only 45 minutes from Venice. Steve would work lots and most likely deploy 2 times out of the 4 years we would live there. Italy has lots of crime...base housing made garages to protect cars from theft and they are not very friendly towards Americans like the people in Germany...I just couldn't go shopping easily at flea markets and stores like in Germany. But it's hard to say no to Italy. Plus we have never been to this base.

So We are not sure what we want to do!!! I can't function because it's all I am thinking about.

Thank goodness on Monday I put all my Valentines decorations out before all this talk about moving distracted me! Ben has been home all week...poor guy still doesn't feel well. We went to the pediatrician yesterday, no need for antibiotics, just time and rest I guess.

How about this. You go to Italy. I'll come visit. And perhaps stay for 3 months.

Wow! You are far braver than I! Wherever you choose, I am sure you will have it looking amazing and feeling like home in no time at all!

I hope the decision is made easy!

Hi Jeni~
Wow, you may be moving overseas! It sounds like you really enjoyed that in the past! I am such a homebody, so I cannot imagine moving to another part of the world! But I bet the experiences and the memories you make when you do are amazing! :) You are one brave girl!

And oh, your decorations are so pretty! I love the twigs with ornaments in the container AND the banner!

I hope you are doing well, and that you have peace over which ever choice you make! :)
