One of the hardest things about being an adult is making friends. It's quite easy when you are at school or working, but being a stay at home mom who is only two months into living in a new country it's difficult. Thankfully the one constant I have besides my family is theater, and thankfully our new base has an active one! Before even moving here I was in contact with someone from the group and thought nothing more of it. Mid February we moved into the temporary housing units on base, and within less than a week I had a message asking if we had arrived and would I mind auditioning for 'The Actors Nightmare'.
The next day Sarah was knocking on the door to our room script in hand and the following week rehearsals started. Walking into a room with this group of people who already have this amazingly easy friendship was so overwhelming to say the least. After several weeks of rehearsals, cast outings and dinners this group of amazing people have become a part of our military family. I can't imagine the rest of our tour here in the UK without them. To be truthful I can't imagine going more than a day without talking to them. It feels so surreal since we haven't been here for long but it feels like I have been part of this group for ages.
With my praises to these lovelies coming to a close I just want them and you all to know how important these budding friendships are to me. I can't wait to see what the future holds! That being said, we all need to do another session after we are all back from our travels. xoxo love you guys.
