The month of May includes a couple of very special holidays that my family looks forward to celebrating: Mother’s Day and Memorial Day. Mother’s Day is a holiday where you would expect to be pampered, spoiled, and celebrated — however, for a military wife, that isn’t always possible.   When you are in the military, […]

It’s been a very hectic couple of months for me. Hectic good. Not the bad kind of hectic. You know, the kind where I plunk myself down on the bathroom floor in a heap of exhaustion and weep kind of hectic that used to be my status quo in my previous life as a mother […]

Serving in the military is something my husband has always dreamed of doing, his love for his country is amazing. His service is something that my children and I are very proud of but it has not come without sacrifice. Many sacrifices come to mind when I think about where the Air Force has taken […]
