He called and told me he got orders to England..

So the day started out pretty normal! I was late for work, and ignoring my phone. My phone rang again about 11am and I reached over to grab it. It was my husband and he was about to tell me something that would change life as I knew it. He skipped the small chat and got right to the point... He had gotten orders.... to...... ENGLAND!! I was like.. is this a late April Fools Joke?? He was like no, we have to be in England by November 30th... oh yeah and we're going for three years! *big gulp*

Alright lets recap... Keri and I got married four months ago.. he joined the Air Force three years ago and spent the entire time in Utah.. so the first orders he gets ... takes him to England?? Raise your hand if you're just as shocked as I was!!

It was seriously hard to digest the news and I'm still don't know what to think. I do know that by December I will be living in my new home in Lakenheath England. Did I mention they drive on the other side of the road?? I barely got down driving on the right side of the road. This is going to be quite the experience and everybody better start saving their money to visit!!

We'll be 70 miles north of London and about 25 miles north of Cambridge. Viva England I guess!!

And I thought it all was an April fools joke on me being April 2nd! Joke was on us being it was true. I don't think I'll ever forget that moment when I saw that assignment notification pop up on my email.
