An Open Letter to our Fort Benning Home

PCS season for military families means leaving one home and moving to another. It can be so hard to make a house into a home when you know that your time there is short and that it’s just temporary, even if you own the home. I wanted to make sure that my family was cherishing every moment in each of our houses along this Army journey and I thought a great way to do that would be to write a letter to each of our homes along with taking photos of our first day in each home and our last day (give or take) in each home. This is my first open letter to our Fort Benning home, 307B.

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.
