A couple of days ago my husband and I were talking about something that I was planning to do next year.  He made the comment, “I might be deployed then…”  It kinda took me by surprise a little bit.  My husband has been home for 9 months now and we finally get to have more [...]

We have been a Military family for over six years now. In that time I have made many new friends. Most of them have been Military wives. There is something so special about the friendships of Military spouses. Our time together is usually limited to 1-3 years. During that time we can develop a closeness [...]

My husband has been home from his third deployment for six months now. In the past this usually would mean that we were getting ready for our next deployment. He was home for 365 days between deployment one and two. And was home for 15 months between deployment two and three. However, his unit deployed [...]

Like many Military families we live far away from our family.  We can’t drive there for a long weekend and to fly is pretty expensive.  As much as I would love to spend Thanksgiving at home this year, it just isn’t going to happen.  Since becoming a military family six years ago, most of the [...]

After being stationed overseas, the return home might seem overwhelming.  There is a lot to think about and some of the transitions may not be as smooth as you would like.  We were in Germany for four years and have been back in the US now for a little over a year and a half. [...]

When we first moved to Germany in 2006 everything was exciting and I enjoyed getting to know the new country.  By the end of 2007 I was ready to move back to the USA.  The only problem was that we had a few more years left before it was time to PCS.  In the spring [...]

It’s been 2.5 months since we got to our new duty station.  In the past it has taken a good 6 months for me to feel “normal” again after a move.  But as I was driving home from post the other day I realize I had hit the “normal” point here already.  I am still [...]
