ANNOUNCEMENT: WE ARE PCSing TO ITALY!

The day before getting our orders, I checked my vMPF (virtual MPF) and our orders were still waiting for authentication and noted that it would take about 3-5 duty days to complete.

And as of 7 days ago, I sent this text to my wife:

Got orders!

Excuse this ungodliness and potty mouth, but my bride responded with:

Holy shit.

Moving from one state to another, no big deal... but moving to another country and living there for the next 3 years, maybe 4... is another story.

Emotions came crashing down. I mean, Italy was only a dream, literally in my "dream sheet", then late November of 2017 it was just an assignment. We went through so many hurdles during this process, including waiting for the systems to stop breaking and marrying my bride to make sure she comes with me. Then all of a sudden, we have orders! IN OUR HANDS!! 

 It's a big step and this would be our first and biggest as a newlywed.

But at least, we can now officially tell you... 

WE ARE MOVING TO ITALY!  

Better come back, as we slowly unfold life together in the romantic country of Italy.
