Ruffled Over Rank: Everything You Need to Know About Military Spouse Etiquette

Let’s talk about rank. When I was a brand new baby mil spouse, I went to a class called Heart Link. It’s an Air Force new spouse orientation program; although, these days they encourage you to attend when you’re new to a base and not just new to the Blue. Seriously, look into it. It’s […]

Getting a Free Breast Pump (Plus Accessories!) is NOT Too Good to be True

When I think back to my time using a breast pump with my first child, my memories are pretty ho hum at best. Mostly, I remember being alone in a confined space, with a ticking clock, telling me I needed to hurry back to work as I eyed the bottles awkwardly attached to my body […]
