If you’re stopping by for the first time in awhile, you might notice a few changes around here on the blog. I jumped over from Blogger to WordPress – so I’m over here trying to figure out how all of this works! I feel like I just pressed the reset buttons. My URL was up and down for a few weeks, but it looks like everything is back to my new normal. I also upgraded from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 7 not too long ago (seriously). Between a bunch of down links on the Blogger site and a phone that wasn’t compatible with apps anymore because apparently iPhone 4’s just can’t hang with the iPhone 10, I felt like this blog had a whole lot of radio silence! I’m so excited to dust this thing off in 2018, because this is going to be a BIG year for our family! We’ve got the highest of highs (vacation!) and some pretty low lows on the calendar this year (spoiler alert: deployment), and we’ll be documenting overtime here before these memories fade! So, in the mean time, please be patient as I work on this little blog between the craziness of life. It’s shaping up, but there’s still a lot to do! So welcome to the new and little-bit-improved The Martins and the Marines! And sorry about the five blog posts in a day – I promise I only do that when I’m extra behind and desperate!
Thanks for sticking around this blog for the last four years! It’s been the biggest blessing to our family to freeze these memories and keep our friends and family in the know of this crazy military adventure we’re loving!
