About

These are the collective stories, pictures, and revelations from the Kings. If you don’t know who we are, we are a very young military family (my husband, Richard, being the military and I, Sydney, the dependent) whose first base is in England. We were forcibly picked up and moved across the great ocean separating two lands and cultures;  now we are living apart from the family and friends that have surrounded us our entire lives, supporting us in times of trial and hardship. I know everyone thinks the Brits speak the same language as American’s, but surprisingly there is still a language barrier. Not to mention driving on the opposite side of the road coupled with incredibly too fast speed limits on back roads, an obnoxious currency exchange, and a complete 180 in culture.  We are also both having to adjust to the strange life that is the military, along with adjusting to each other as newly-weds, all at the same crazy whirlwind time. Not only is this experience of being overseas very scary, its also incredibly exciting. We now get to explore the world where many cannot. We never could have imagined living in England and being able to just go wherever in Europe/the UK we wanted. Travel here is so cheap it is honestly a steal. So, these are stories of a young couple trying to make it in life while having adventures and falls, lack of family and new friends, seeing the world, owning a dog, and trying to succeed in this thing called marriage.

    • Oh wow! Thanks so much! I haven’t gotten on here in so long. I miss writing. We just moved into a new house and got a new puppy…. It’s been CRAZY. Thanks so much for the nomination! I have a few things running through my head recently and I think I might like to share them :)

    Hey I saw your draft…I just posted it so I hope you were done? If not, just edit it…It’s really a great post. One that makes you really step back and think…..Thank you so much for posting……Robin

    Oh…Congrats on the new house and the puppy! :D

    • It’s all done! I already went through it and it sounds alright to me :) thanks for posting it! I know it won’t be a popular idea because we are always told we must be “perfect” in a way (in that we can’t have deep feelings like that and be normal). It was just something on my heart and I’m glad you liked it :) I was a little worried you wouldn’t agree! The point was to make people stop and think. We all have these issues and it does everyone a great disservace when we aren’t allowed to share what we feel without the fear of reproach.

      I’ll be posting pictures and such of our house as soon as the internet gets up! :D I love it!
