Buon Anno from Italia

Happy New Year! Or, as Italians might say, Buon Anno! It’s been awhile since I’ve written for My Military Life and I have to say, I’m super excited to be back. I’m in my last year of graduate school so any time I’ve spent on a computer in the past few months had been dedicated [...]

I’ve never really been a patriotic person. Not to say I don’t tear up when the Star Spangled Banner plays on July 4th or that I burn the flag or anything, but I’ve never been one to run around the streets of America professing my love for my country and it’s people. Truth be told, [...]

Happy New Year friends, from Italia! This was my first New Years in Italy and I was so excited to continue our holiday vacation once again in Venice.

If you don’t speak Italian, you may not know that the title of this blog post is titled, “Merry Christmas!” I learned this phrase yesterday, on December 25th while we were strolling the streets of Venice. We had been to Venice quite a few times before (seeing that it is only an hour away and [...]

Ciao, amicos! The last time I wrote I talked about the transition from career woman to milspouse and how it was anything but easy. However, I’ve always enjoyed a challenge (well, cried through it but appreciate the outcome) and am up for this one as well. By all means I feel like an awful, miserable [...]
