When we moved to South Carolina, I didn’t know what to expect. I knew it was going to be a heck of a lot different than living in Chicago, that’s for sure. I had previously visited family who live in North Carolina and was not super impressed with what I saw, so I was a […]
One of the challenges of being a military spouse is that you are unlikely to live near your (or your spouse’s) family. That means your support system may not be what you’d like. In an effort to have a good support system wherever we land, I have learned to put myself out there and make […]
When military families first find out they’re going to be stationed in Jacksonville, North Carolina, they tend to be less than thrilled. They were maybe hoping for somewhere a little more glamorous like California or Hawaii. In their minds, they picture Jacksonville as a typical military town littered with tattoo parlors and barber shops. What […]
My phone rang as I was leaving the grocery store. It was my husband. I hadn’t thought much of it because he often calls just to see how my day is going. He’s swell like that. “We have to move to Alabama.” “Huh?” I asked. “I got ACSC (Air Command and Staff College),” he said. […]
Yes, that is the unofficial slogan for this West Texas town, population 115,930. By the time we finally move this summer, we will have lived here for a total of 6, count them, SIX years! Join the Air Force, they said! See the world, they said! Needless to say, I think I can now offer […]

You teeter between giddy excitement and a foreboding sense of dread, all wrapped up in a breathless moment, waiting to be unwrapped. “I can’t believe it,” he says. […]
Although it’s March, for many of you, it still feels like winter. Most of my friends are posting pictures of snowy landscapes and adorable knit hats. I’m a sucker for an adorable hat, so I admit I feel a bit jealous as I scroll past these photos in my newsfeed. But let’s be real. The […]
We’ve been at our new duty station for a little over seven months now, so we have passed the “adjustment period” of a typical permanent change of station. When you talk to other military spouses who have PCS’ed for the umpteenth time, they say, “just give it six months.” Well my six months have come […]
When my husband received orders to San Antonio, Texas, we knew it was only temporary. It happened to be one stop of many for his training. But because it required nine to twelve months of training, the Air Force allowed the boys and I to accompany him. I can’t lie. My mind flirted with thoughts […]
