I'll be the first to admit that usually I am not one to toot my own military spouse horn. In fact most of my friends and family can vouch for the fact that through this whole deployment I have been pretty strong if I say so myself. Surprising even myself. I'm ridiculously proud of my country, specifically my husband. But if it weren't for the blue star flag on my car window and apartment window, you may never know that every night I come home to my wonderful dog and my computer.. where I see my husband in pixels often battling the internet to get a good conversation in.. that is if you don't know me personally.
On this day though I applaud each and every one of us that is going through this military life with our head held high and our heart full of love and support.
If you are new to my blog from the blog hop, welcome!
I'm Amanda.. A fiesty 22 year old redhead residing in Kansas while we finish up a deployment. Our 2 year old dog and I are holding down the fort in a one bedroom third floor apartment. Which you may or may not sometimes hear about... (ever tried carrying laundry up to a third floor apt??) I'm keeping busy with school and work.. and family and friend time. I'm a Kansas native, so I am lucky to have my family right down the road and my friends dispersed within a one hour radius of me.
My husband and I have been married for 2 years. We met our senior year of high school but didn't start this "us" journey until after basic training. We dated long distance for a year and a half, and we got married in the courthouse just a few days after he officially proposed. After finishing my Associates degree I packed my life into my Toyota Corolla and moved to Maryland. We spent a year at Ft Meade, where I took some classes, joined some clubs and raised the dog. Then the hubs was sent overseas to Kuwait and I relocated back to Kansas. Before too long this deployment will be up though and we will be reunited, ready to start the next chapter.
I can't really say my blog has one specific topic. I write whatever I like.. sometimes I rant, sometimes I celebrate, sometimes I write just about the day. I wish I were more crafty, or could cook, or even had children to write about. But I don't.. so I write about what I know. Me, myself and I. :)
You can find me on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
And I can't wait to get to know some new friends! :)
P.S. Isn't my husband the sweetest?
