The Best Day

We are getting MARRIED!!!

I arrived in California late Thursday night May 19th. We woke up early Saturday morning and Zach told me that he had something planned, but I wasn’t sure what it was. The ride to wherever we were going seemed like forever, and the only thing I knew was that we were headed north. We arrived to a helicopter pad in Long Beach, CA, around 10:30, and at this point I knew that we were headed to Catalina Island.

Funny story, early that morning I showed Zach that my Facebook memories showed that we went to Catalina Island on that exact day 7 years early! Our high school senior trip was to Los Angeles. We spend about 6 days visit many of the main tourist locations, and on that particular day our class took a ferry to Catalina Island where we spent the day. Zach and I went biking around the island and parasailing. He went snorkeling while while I rented a golf cart with friends and rode around the island. I had always hoped that Zach and I would travel back to the island together… little did I know that it would happen during this trip.

Zach’s Winging

As most people know my boyfriend is in the Navy. He recently finished flight school and received his wings. The week and weekend of his winging was amazing and very busy. I thought I would give a summary of what the week consisted of…either for myself to be able to look back and remember, or for others about to experience the same thing and wondering what they should expect.

Wednesday. My flight to Pensacola was disastrous and I barely made it to his soft patch winging which was on a Wednesday. The soft patch wings go on the flight suit, and this was a small, informal ceremony for each individual squadron. Each flight student chose an instructor to present him with his soft patch, and usually the instructor told funny stories about the student.
