Home Sweet Home!

We found out this week that we will be returning to CA in June! John will be stationed at Coast Guard Sector Los Angeles Long beach. Our transfer from DC was not going to happen for another year, and even then we were not sure where we would be stationed. We are really excited to have this opportunity to come back home! John is excited because he will be able to speed up his career by gaining more experience in the field. Also, to be working outside on the boats and near the water is great for him! We feel so blessed to be able to live near our family and friends once again.
As much as we are excited to see our families, let's be real. What is John really looking forward to? Two years away from surfing is too long, so he tells me!
