What We Learned from Our DITY Move to Georgia

This post has been highly requested and pretty much has been something I've been trying to write since we moved from New York to Georgia in June. It's crazy that we've already been here for three months and are working into our fourth right now. For all my non military people who might be reading this, a DITY move is basically a do-it-yourself move. I think the name has actually changed to Personally Procured Move but DITY move definitely rolls off the tongue better. Anyways, that's neither here nor there. There are a lot of reasons to chose a DITY move for military families over having the military move you, one of which being that you actually get reimbursed for the money you spend on the move. You can typically make a decent amount of money off of a DITY move which is why it's so popular among military families. Oh, and you don't have to worry about movers breaking your stuff or getting it mixed up with someone else's belongings. Yeah, real things that happen.

Would I feel happy and fulfilled? There were so many unknowns going into this new role as a SAHW that would cause anyone a great deal of anxiety.

Places We Love at Fort Benning

I know there are new people coming to Fort Benning every day so I figured a round-up of the places Justin and I are loving so far would be super helpful for anyone who is new to the area. I blinked and we've been here a month already and man, there's a lot you can do here in a month. Granted, most of the places we love involve food and/or beer but that's just us. We have been loving exploring our new area on the weekends so maybe I'll update this post regularly throughout our time here.
