I want to take a few moments to recognize this wonderful human being in my life. This wonderful man who I married. The past week has been… Rough. Let’s be honest. We had the holidays, we had travel, we had the usual family pressures. But we also have Navy orders hanging over our head. Then … More It’s the Little Things
When I was a little girl… I, like everyone I’m sure, had an image in my mind of what my life would look like. To me – Adulthood was “30”. It was a magical, mystical number. It was the number where I’d be real and my life would be sorted and look just like my … More Thirty
Recently, I went to a Dance Teacher Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. I learned so much over that week that it’s been nearly impossible to put into words… and as usual, has taken me a little bit of time to process. I really did expect to learn tons. I have pages and pages and pages of … More Dance Teacher Conferences
This adventure we call life is a fun ride to do what everyone seems to refer to as “Finding Yourself”. But what on earth does that mean? That’s the million dollar question, isnt it? If someone had the answer to that and a small direction guide on how to accomplish it, they’d possess the ability … More What’s in a picture?
Another year rolls around, another holiday comes around with it. Mother’s Day. What an interesting concept to have a “Mother’s Day” and a “Father’s Day”. Probably a great excuse to sell cards and go out for brunch. But that’s alright. That isn’t my topic at the moment. My topic at the moment is… What exactly … More Let’s Talk About Mothers.

I grew up in a pretty affluent area of Florida, in my own sheltered little world, for better or worse and all of the things that come along with it. My ideal home has an open floorplan, … More So Then We Joined A Country Club
Warning: Religion ahead. Maaaaybe stop reading if you’re not interested. Or if you’re judgy. This past week, I attended a Bible Study for the first time ever (!!!), with a whole bunch of strangers that I didn’t know, and who were not even from my church. It was a little scary. I’m always a little … More Let’s Talk Religion
There’s a lot about “Old Navy” (No, not the store) that I really like. (Okay, occasionally the store too. They’ve got lots of anchors, and it works for me). Mainly, the wife side. There’s something about tradition, of calling on people (in person) for coffee and tea. For bringing hostess gifts and thank you notes … More Ye Olde Navy, Ye New Adventures
In case you didn’t know or hadn’t yet figured it out… my “Real Job” as an adult is teaching dance. I know, I know – not much of a “Real Job”. But we’re letting it go. It’s really the only job I get paid for, so I’ll own it. Anyways, in this teaching – there … More Building a Roof
I ran across something the other day, that talked about how military wives tend to lose themselves in their husband’s world. At the time, I laughed. I dismissed it. Because of course, I was better than that. I didn’t need it. I wasn’t one of those girls. In fact, I’m so much the opposite that I … More Let’s Talk Identity
