Military Spouse Bloghop

Sometimes I sit back and remember the days when I lived at home. Down an old dirt road, back in the woods. Our house sat beside a little creek where we fished and went swimming during the summer.

My Daddy always had a garden that he started in the Spring; where we'd pick fresh veggies and spend countless hours together.

I used to tell him that I would build a house along side the creek and we would open up a shop where we would sell the rockers that he built.(They're amazing by the way!!!)  I used to promise him that I'd never leave our little "Emory Cove."

Then I grew up.

I went and joined the Air Force and for 2 years worked for the government.

Eventually I met Mike and now I couldn't be anymore happier. I ended up getting out of the Air Force because I was pregnant. I couldn't bear the thought of deploying and leaving my babies at home. Even though I had a blast when I was in Kuwait...

 I remember the faces of the parents when I was in Kuwait. They were always so heart broken.
So when Mike and I found out we were pregnant, we both agreed that I would separate. I am a
 "Military Spouse" and a "Stay at Home Moma" to two beautiful twin girls.

I wake up everyday knowing that my husband will always have a job. I now have the fear that he will be sent away for 3-6 months at a time and I will be here alone with my girls. comes with the job.
All I can say least I've been on both sides of the fence. that you know a little about me (which there is more that I could share);
