White Gloves Optional
I am a military spouse.
I’m also a mother, friend, business owner, marketing professional, equestrian, avid food lover, uninspired decorator, and rather useless crafter.
As we navigate the challenges of military life, it often feels like all of those other components of who we are fade under the weight of “military spouse”.
the new friends
the folded flags
It sometimes feels so big, this military life, so much a part of your life – what’s left for us?
After 12 years, 8 moves, too many deployments/TDYs/field exercises, I don’t have it all figured out. But I have collected resources, built a village to support my family & I, and learned some lessons. There is no one way to be successful as a military spouse, but I’d love to share with you the ways I’ve found to smooth the way.
