Blue Angels Return to an Air Show Near You

I remember the first time I saw the Navy’s Blue Angels at an air show in St. Louis over a 4th of July weekend. I must have been around 15 and was spending the summer visiting my grandparents.

Juggling the D Word, Yeah, Deployment

My Homecoming

My husband was supposed to come home after Thanksgiving, but plans changed due to the mission. His ship and several others had to turn around. The one thing my pregnancy has taught me is to roll [...]
