This trip was 3 months ago, but life has finally slowed down enough for me to share what I was blessed enough to see with one of my most favorite people in the world and her family. We were together for a little while in North Carolina, but then the military carted her off to Okinawa and me to California. Such is the military spouse life… mom friend date, find a woman that becomes like a sister, go through life together for a while…then PCS.
Our first venture was to their mall. Oh, my word. United States malls are declining for a reason. They are NOTHING like the malls in Okinawa. I mean seriously… there was a huge aquarium tank. We walked around for a while and I searched around for some of the goodies that the kids asked me to look for. We stopped for food in a ton of places with samples but ended with taco rice and donuts.
I cannot even put into words how amazing that tasted. Life-changing for this taco loving girl. I have been trying to recreate it since returning home with no success. Instead, I think I should just go back and visit again!
