    exciting yet scary at the same time. I'm pregnant. We're thrilled of course, but I'm really nervous because this is my first and miscarriages run in my family. I'm not sure when I'll be able to get an appointment to have blood work done but hopefully it's soon. Anyway I wanted...

    Just had a few questions

    that I'm curious about that I usually ask fellow wives… Best/Worse duty stations you've been on? On post or off post? If you could be sent anywhere, where would it be? For me, my favorite so far has been Carson (I loved Carson, wahhh I wanna go back) On post Germany <3

    So it's been a crazy 6 months!

    !! My hubby is finally home, but only for 3 weeks then he heads to Germany! Where I will follow shortly behind. I really don't want to say goodbye again for any amount of time and I'm so overwhelmed with an over seas move. Now I'm just trying to roll with the punches!!

    I am excited to say I do get to see him in 11 days, for graduation. So I am new to this whole army thing. I look forward to meeting many new people who are going through the same experiences I am. This by far is not the easiest decision I've ever made to become an army wife. I...

    I'M In Love With A Soldier

    Loving a soldier is a high price to pay, loving him truly is hard when he's away. It's being alone with nothing to hold; lt's being young, but feeling old; it's having him whisper his love for you; it's whispering back that you love him too. There comes a kiss and a promise for...

    What. A. Bummer. Don't get me wrong, the Army is a respectable career and lifestyle. It pays well and has amazing benefits. Sadly, the saying, "It's too good to be true," likes to prove itself to be a factual statement. My husband has been away for a year already. In that time...

    A U.S. Soldier….His emotions are impenetrable,

    yet his shoulders are soft for those that need someone to lean on. His hands are firm yet know exactly where they need to be. If he has his arms wrapped around you, he’s about to end your life or you’re in the safest place you could ever be. He’s stubborn but will let you...
