Because my husband is in the US Army, we move a lot. Since 2006 we have lived in Georgia, Virginia, Washington DC, and now Hawaii.
We decided to live on post because on top of the high rental costs, utilities are very expensive out here. By living in military housing we are guaranteed any maintenance issues would be handled without worry, our dog would be allowed, and that we’d share a few things in common with our neighbors. Unfortunately, we live in very old housing with a bug problem. This is only temporary until they move us out so these can be torn down. But until then, bare with me if I write about the many pitfalls this house has.
Hawaii is a great place! We hope to be adventurous and outdoorsy during our stay in paradise. There are great hikes within walking distance of our house and the beach is a just short drive. The weather is beautiful most of the time but even when it rains we still try to explore our new backyard.
