Ok, so that title dates me a bit (and yes, I was a BIG fan). But anyway…Hello! I am so excited to be here as a new blogger and team member with Army Wife Network! I am thrilled at the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing community!
A little bit about myself…I have been married to my Hero for almost 10 years now. He is currently serving his first deployment to Iraq and I miss him terribly! Our journey with the Army National Guard began 4 years ago when my hubby stated that if he didn’t join the military, it would be something he would always regret. It was a dream of his and I was not one to stand in the way of a dream, especially one so honorable. I backed his decision wholeheartedly and we’ve not looked back since! While it’s not always an easy life, and being a National Guard family presents it’s own set of challenges, it is a life I love.
Together we have two beautiful children, ages 7 and 4, who keep me very active! They are my biggest reason to stay focused and positive during the long separation from my husband. I am also an elementary school teacher and am taking Graduate classes on the side. I guess you could say I like to stay busy!
When I started writing my own personal blog, I never envisioned where it would take me. I have met so many amazing military spouses who inspire me every day. It’s so comforting to know there are other women (and men) experiencing the same situations and feelings as I am. Knowing I am not alone, especially while my husband is away, makes some of the challenges just a little easier to handle! While I consider myself and our family new to the military world (and to the blogging world!), I hope that my blogs can encourage and relate to other spouses and provide a little of that comfort which I have found.
I am so excited for this opportunity to be a part of the Loving A Soldier blog and Army Wives Network and I am honored to be given the chance to share my “voice” with you all!
