Just before Avril arrived, I got some great news from one of my Marine Wifeys. She and her husband live in Iwakuni, mainland Japan. He was coming to Okinawa for a training mission and she decided to hop a Space A flight and tag along. This was uber- exciting for Kaylie and me since she is a part of the original clan from Quantico. I had not seen her in a little over a year, before we moved to Oklahoma.
|Me, Kaylie, and Heather rockin' some Japanese accessories.|
One of the blessings of this lifestyle is the opportunity to have great friends all over the world. It was so nice to see Heather and spend time together as if we had not skipped a beat. I am truly blessed to have her as my friend!
|Ironically, Heather and Avril know each other from Avril's visit to Quantico when I lived there. This is before we treated ourselves to cute toes on the seawall.|
|I was able to introduce Avril, Joe, and Heather to one of the best Japanese pastimes. Karaoke!|
|Joe was seriously too good at karaoke... he made the rest of us look bad!|
|The lyrics are never quite right, the beat is always a bit off, and the music videos are laughable... but karaoke with great friends is priceless!|
|Avril even busted a few jams!|
I am sad to see her head off for her next adventure (Australia!), but know that we will be reunited again soon! Miss you, Heather! <3
