MilSpouse Blog Hop Welcome

Where thou art – that – is Home.
~Emily Dickinson


Welcome to the MilSpouse Blog Hop, coordinated by Wife on the Roller Coaster. I’m so exciting to meet everyone!

About Me
I’m a small-town woman who fell in love with a Navy man while he was on shore duty in Michigan. And then I decided to join the Navy Reserves as an officer.   On March 21, 2009, we were married… just in time for him to return to sea duty in the great state of Washington. Without me. We had only been married a few weeks.

I love my Sailor!

You see, I owned a house not only in a bad economy, but in the worst economy in the United States. It took 10 months of trying to sell, but unfortunately it didn’t. However, we took a leap of faith and are trying to make it on one and a half salaries while I search for a job.  And yes, my husband now has to salute me ;)

We are now on our second deployment. And have only lived together for 10 weeks.  I may also be sent active duty very soon… prolonging our separation.

While he’s gone, I get to deal with hang out with our three dogs. We have three. And they are large. Between the three of them, they weigh nearly 300 pounds. Okay, well, it’s actually 285-290, but that’s nearly 300, right? And 300 sounds so much more amazing, right?

We have Chase, the nearly 11 year old Greyhound.  Lulu, the 4 year old Greyhound. And Skah, the 2 year old Great Pyrenees. They keep me busy, especially when Huzzy is on deployment.

And this is my story…
