I remember when we first got orders to El Paso back in October. We were beyond excited for a new adventure and to live in a new place. As excited as we were, we got a lot of negative feedback. We chose this assignment because it was best for Kyle's career (people just didn't seen to understand that). Most of the negativity was from people who had never been there. Looking back I'm so glad we didn't listen to those people. We LOVE it here, we love the people and the atmosphere. Yes it's a border town and that's mostly what people worry about. El Paso has been voted one of the countries safest cities and I believe it.
I truly believe that if you embrace where you live and experience the local culture you will be happier. We have tried to do that and it has made a world of difference. I'm always looking for new adventures and El Paso never disappoints. We will be sad when it comes time to leave, but that is the craziness of this military life you just never know where you will end up.
Hope you all have a great day!
