A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out.
I can’t believe I didn’t see this earlier. The Household Diva over at HouseholdDiva6 has a really neat idea going. See, many of us bloggers can’t get to any blogging conferences for one reason or another so she’s devised a way for us to virtually meet. You can read about the details here.
So welcome Blizzard Bloghoppers. Here’s a little bit about me:
I’m in my mid-20s (okay, a bit closer to 30 than 25, but whatever!) and I
married my active duty Sailor last March. Since then, we’ve lived together for only 7 1/2 weeks.
He PCSed to Washington state back in May leaving me here in Michigan to sell our house. During this time, we went through our first deployment. I currently haven’t seen him for five months. But that will all change in just 23 days (well, as long as the Navy cooperates) when he comes to Michigan to help me drive our three dogs to Washington state to live (which will be another adventure since I’ve never lived anywhere but Michigan).
Yup, we have three dogs. Two Greyhounds–Chase and Lulu–and a two year old Great Pyrenees named Skah. That’s 285lbs of dog right there between all three!
But I have another connection to the Navy. Last June, I raised my hand and become a Navy Reserve Officer.
So this blog is all about my journey as a newlywed, a new MilSpouse (that’s Military Spouse) and a new Navy officer. Things are fun and frustrating, but I love my life!
