Meet Amber (and Dave is in this picture too!)
Amber and Dave just made their 10th move with the military, although they have lived in 13 houses! (If you know, you know!)
Even after 10 moves are any of us experts in moving with the military? Just when we think we have this move thing down to a science, 2020 happens and all bets are off.
We wondered in 10 moves, does Amber have any furniture that has 10 military moving tags on it… “I don’t have any that have made all 10 moves, but our current record is furniture with us for 9 total moves.”
We asked Amber what was their easiest move? “Definitely our move from Fort Campbell to Fort Benning, only 7 hours and we had no kids at the time.”
Who remembers those moves? Easy Breezy! 3 kids, multiple cars, 2 dogs and moving a business…those days are a sweet faint memory.
We asked Amber if they had a go to meal for the first night in their new places? “It’s usually takeout…as we’re still searching for cookware…and exhausted. Why does EVERY box say “glassware”?”
Amber is currently living the military life in the Tidewater area of Virginia. Covid has certainly made moving and getting to know your new community challenging. We asked Amber how she has made an effort to get involved in her new community despite the challenges of 2020? “I volunteered to be on the Spouses’ Club Board.” Amber is putting her marketing and social media skills to good use for her community as Publicity Chair!
Have you moved this year? What charm do you need to add to your story?
