When Aaron and I started dating he was an officer in the Navy and stationed in Norfolk, VA. I knew nothing about the city at the time, but I fell in love with it just about as quickly as I fell in love with Aaron (QUICK, for those who don't know ;). Because we were dating long distance I spent many a weekend visiting him, and it set the stage for some of our favorite dating memories. He lived in Ghent, which is kind of like the "Brooklyn" of Norfolk - charming streets, craft beer for days, and just enough hipsters to make you forget you were in a Navy town. Something about those Norfolk days were so carefree and fun, we were young and in love with very little responsibilities outside of our jobs. It's a time we often look back on, and it was so much fun to go back for a quick visit over Veteran's Day weekend. Also fitting to be in the place where Aaron spent his time serving!
