Beautiful Skies in Texas

Nightly, Max and I walk and/or run around the neighborhood so that he can say hello to everyone and mark all of his territory. We love walking under skies like this!

Update from South Korea...Jamie is doing good. His work is slow right now, but he seems to like Korea. He is walking everywhere, and stated how everywhere he goes he has to walk up at least one hill. He will begin apartment hunting next week for us so that I will know what items to send him. I am so glad that he is doing so good!
This is how good/tired Max was tonight. He just waited for me to take my pictures and stared at the neighbors cat. (which he hates!)

Our Living Room is complete

Well, after being in our new house in Texas for almost three months, my decorating is complete! I finally got the frame that we have been looking at so that our lovely wedding photo can hang in our living room. The ironic part of this, is that yesterday I met with a Property Manager so that we can rent our house when I leave for Korea. HA! Its great to finally have the room complete, but it's just in time to take it all down. Although it won't be up long, I am going to enjoy it while it is up!

Jamie and Allison Burton

Hello all!! This is certainly a new thing for me...I have never blogged before, but I figure this will enable our friends and family to keep up with us. For those of you who dont know, Jamie and I got married on July 4th!! We then moved to Killeen, Texas into our beautiful new home! :)

Although being newlyweds is great, we knew that we had to prepare for Jamie's departure to Korea. Living so far from "home" was a challenge at first, but it got easier with time! The first 3 months flew by entirely too quickly!

This past Sunday, Jamie's mother, Vicki, and I took him to the airport at 5:30am! It was certainly the hardest thing that I have had to do. He is now stationed at Camp Carroll in South Korea. The good thing is that, I am able to go with him soon! The Army is allowing spouses and families to accompany soldiers on this trip, and we are taking advantage of that! Our plan right now is for me to arrive in Korea on or around December 1st. Right now, I am filling out paperwork, sorting our household items, figuring out the entire moving process in the Army...which is very challenging especially overseas! We are excited to take this journey together, and explore the world!!!
