I haven’t done a very good job this year of writing as much as I wanted to.  Every month in my bullet journal one of my goals is to write more/post more.  I even have a habit tracker that is blog related that has been empty for months.  I started this blog because I wa...


The first time I saw the Sailor in a uniform changed my life. We weren't even dating, he had just come back from his first deployment, and we were hanging out in Durham during one weekend. He had to drive straight back to Norfolk afterwards, so he for whatever reason w...


The Sailor and I got married what many would call "old" in the military community.  We didn't date in high school, he didn't join right after graduation, and we decided to have the big traditional wedding that took about two years to put together (thanks deployment)....


I recently got an email from a woman whose husband had just enlisted in the Navy.  She said that she enjoyed reading my blog (hooray!) and wanted to know if my husband and I chose to live on base and why or why wouldn't we?  It made me reexamine the decision the Sailor...


I was very excited when my husband decided to reenlist for shore duty, mostly because that meant NO DEPLOYMENTS.  He would be tied for three years to a command that wasn’t on a ship, he would have no deployments, no underways, no late nights working on things that brok...

So a few months ago, the Sailor and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary!  Which is crazy!  It feels so short, but also like the appropriate amount of time.  We have had so many ups and downs in just our first year.  I think we've learned a lot about each other a...


Hey guys!  I know it seems like I fell of a cliff and let me tell you, life has been pretty crazy.  The Sailor and I bought a town home in May that I am in love with and very proud of.  So we moved in May 11th and have been making it our home for most of the summer.  W...


I’m sure you’re reading all of this and saying, you married a man in the military, you should know you’re going to be around guns! And yeah, I guess I did. But it’s still weird.


Here’s a list of things that I sent the Sailor: 1. Letters – not the “open when” kind, all of them had random themes, like my favorite foods, a love letter, things he didn’t know about me, or old memories. I wanted him to be able to read them whenever he wanted and no...
