When I was younger, I would write when I would get emotional. Any kind of emotion. Excitement, anger, jealousy, humiliation, sadness, confusion – These were all triggers of something inside of myself that I needed to get out. I’m not always great with words; I run from confrontation and if I have to confront someone, I write down what I plan to say first. Writing seems to be my best outlet and safety net, at the same time.
Fast forward 10-15 years… you’ll find me still writing when I’m emotional. Just a little bit less about falling down the senior staircase at school in a skirt and sneaky away messages. What you’re going to see now is marriage qualms, deployments, FRG meetings, pregnancy symptoms, work issues, etc.
I’m married to an Army Soldier currently serving in Afghanistan. I’m proud to say that, but it’s not easy. I’m 5 months pregnant with our first child and living in an area that is minimum 14 hours away from my family and friends.
I wouldn’t say my blog will just be about “army wife life” or anything of the sort. I blog about what I want to, when I want to. There’s really no theme or tagline that can cover it. That being said, I have turned to other Military significant others substantially through this deployment and if I’ve learned anything – It’s that each one of us handles deployment (no matter what the time period) differently. I write about random stuff. That’s how I deal. #toeachtheirown
5 Things About Me:
- I’m a Photographer and a lover of the Arts.
- My socks rarely ever match.
- My husband proposed to me after only dating me for two months. He bought the ring the day after he met me. We were engaged for a long time before we got married but… he’s a romantic, that’s for sure.
- I’m a natural blonde but think I look better as a brunette.
- I have dreams that I haven’t fulfilled yet, but I’m working on them.
