My blog design resulted in perfect timing, just as I’m unveiling my “new” military spouse blog, it’s Military Spouse Appreciation Day! With my new design comes a new direction for my blog. Although I will continue to bring the reviews, giveaways, and snippets of life I always do, I want to start focusing more on military life and support for military wives. I feel that there are not enough resources out there, and even though there are some great ones I want to make sure everyone is finding out about them!
This picture is of me and my sister-in-law. We’re both military spouses and our husbands are both currently deployed. We’re together because we’re staying with our hubbies parents. They’re the only kids in the family so that means my in-laws have both sons overseas at once as well. Although I’ve lived the military spouse lifestyle it wasn’t up until this deployment that I *really* lived it. I have so, so, so much admiration for all the women out there dealing with deployments, especially those who are having to go through the year long ones and go through them multiple times in their husbands military career. The last few weeks with everything that has happened have been the hardest I’ve ever had in my life. I think people who aren’t super close to a military spouse, especially military spouses with children, just don’t have any idea what life is really like for them. I’m hoping to bring more of that to light through my blog in the near future.
So for today I celebrate and salute all the brave, beautiful women who are sacrificing so much while their hubbies do as well. Thank you for your service to our country!
