About The Author
Where to begin? First, let me thank you for stopping by my blog. I have truly been astounded at the response I’ve gotten from people all over the world that are a part of this military family. Please leave comments when you read. I love to hear everyone’s thoughts and feelings.
I am a 25 year old Army wife, married on New Years Eve 2009, currently living near Fort Hood Texas. Stay Cav! Myhusband and I met in high school, back in 9th grade. We never dated and I never once looked at him as anything more than a good friend all those years ago. We lost touch after we graduated in 2003 and shortly before he deployed in 2008, we re-connected through Facebook. We spent the next year of his first deployment in constant communication and our romance blossomed. We have an unusual story, but one that is for the ages. We saw each other again for the first time in 6 years when he came home for R&R on September 27th, 2009. It’s a day neither of us will ever be able to forget. We re-live it often. That day also happened to be the 9 year anniversary of a dear friend of ours passing. It’s incredible how things come together.
This blog represents my feelings and emotions as an army friend turned girlfriend turned fiance…and eventually turned wife. My hope is that I am able to help those of you who find yourselves in my shoes. I know I was confused when I stepped into this life, coming from no military background…I had no idea what to expect. With that said, this is my disclaimer: This is a blog. It’s a personal space to vent, express, and discuss. You don’t have to agree with me, but be respectful. I won’t tolerate spiteful comments.
They won’t get approved, so don’t waste your time trying to post them.
Finally, the fun stuff. I am a Florida girl, having spent 24 years of my life there before moving to DC for a bit. I’m both city and country. I love Manhattan like there is no tomorrow, but…I’d love to be on a farm and ride horses all day long too. Sweet tea and mojitos are my faves. I’m a huge wine girl. Grilled cheese and anything Greek are my faves. I can’t wait to have a family. He wants three girls…I say that’s too much estrogen for one house. None the less, we can’t wait to have our Emma Sophia, our Ava Grace, & our Anthony Michael. ❤ I love scrapbooking, reading, classic movies, Church, shopping, anything pink, blogging, and volunteering as often as I can.
