H is for Houses

We've lived in a lot of HOUSES in our almost 21 years of marriage.  We started out in Oscoda, Michigan.  We lived in Two Houses there.  Oscoda is a TINY beach town on Lake Huron.

After Oscoda, it was off to Okinawa, Japan.  Two Houses there as well.

After Okinawa it was back to America.  Spokane, Washington and Two Houses there.
Here are the kids on a visit back to Spokane in 2005.

Next it was across the Atlantic to Norfolk, England.  Again, Two Houses.

Back to America and Tucson, Arizona.  Guess how many Houses?  Yep, Two.
House number one.

House number Two.

Off we went across the ocean again.  This time to Aviano, Italy.  And again...Two Houses.
House number one.  Roveredo In Piano, Italy.

House number Two.  Pordenone, Italy.  Our favorite of all.

And finally, we're here in Alamogordo, New Mexico.  Our last House before Mike retires. 

So, THIRTEEN HOUSES in all.  Wonder where we're off to next???

For more on the letter H go visit Jenny and her Alphabe-Thursday.


  1. Wow! You've really gotten around.

    My husband and I have lived in three houses, altogether. I think you've got me beat!


  2. What sounds like a whole lot of packing! I have only moved three times as an adult.

  3. Love the second house in Italy. And your last house is nice too. One more move?~Ames

  4. impressive! Will you miss moving if you don't anymore? I can imagine you've learned much in all those places.
    I've lived in 8 residences with my husband over a bunch of years.

  5. Hey, I recognized a Tucson house right off the bat. That's where I live! You have certainly had an exciting life!!

  6. What an exciting marriage full of traveling! I love to go to new places. I think it is wonderful that you have provided your children with such experiences. Have a terrific weekend.

  7. Being an AF brat, I can relate to all these houses. It was neat seeing them in order! I wonder if my Mom could do that with all the places we've been.

    So where is the final house gonna be? Or will you be able to settle in one after he retires? You might need to be one of those jet-setting kinda people with houses all over the place!

    This was a fun progression post, Monica!

    Can't wait to see your next furniture project either!

    Hugs and A+

  8. What amazing travels! This must have been wonderful, especially for the kids, to live in so many parts of the world. I hope they kept diaries!

    Have a great weekend,
