Hello bloggy friends. I have recently come across a blog dedicated to the every day inner workings of a Military Spouse. Well, they are currently holding a little blog hop at Riding the Roller Coaster to get to know other Military spouses. I thought this was a cool concept as we can never have too many friends that share some of the same experiences. I know that my blog is typically dedicated to my Scrapbooking passion, but I wanted to share another piece of me...The Military Wife.
Hello, My name is Amy. I am a Military wife. This above all other things has the most impact on my life. The military decides where we live, when the family gets to have Big Daddy around, and most importantly builds a stronger bond in our family life. It has been the reason for the love and strength that holds us together. I am 27 years old and have known this life since I married my High school sweetheart at the ripe ole' age of 18. I knew my DH, and have been dating him since I was 15 years old. He has always been the man for me, and I would follow him to the ends of the world and back again, just to hold his hand. We have 3 amazing children; Kayla 10, Kyrsten 5, and Koen 2. They are our 3KO's, and life with them is truly amazing. My husband is currently on deployment #3. This by far has been the hardest deployment we have faced. Words can not describe the reality of this one. We have lost a LOT of good men, and I live for those phone calls. I wait for those phone calls anxiously, just to hear his voice. Just to know that my soldier, our Big Daddy, is safe for one more day. I know a lot of people think it's silly to live your life for a man, but when he is THE man for you, then you live your life together. We do the best we can, and we are happy with that. Where will the Military take us next? That I am not sure of, but one things for certain, it will be an adventure. One that I will treasure.
OK, I know that was supposed to be a short introductory, but I could seriously go on forever... I am so excited to be participating in this MilSpouse blog hop and hope to meet many other ladies that wear the same shoes as I do.
OK, OK, you didn't really think I could post without something Scrappy, did you?! Today I have a new sketch to share. I am really having fun creating these. If you use it please let me know! I would LOVE to see :)
The K's are my entire life. Kayla the Princess, Kyrsten the Rebel, and Koen my little man. I love makeup and feel ugly if my toes aren't painted. My dream job is to write greeting cards for Hallmark. The color turquoise makes me smile. I would die without Carmex. My husband and I are each others rock - that's just how we roll! I love my family and friends, they are my everything! Life, Liberty, and the persuit of happiness is the answer. I like to scrabble it up in my free time! I like people who are real - Real crazy! Oh, and if you haven't noticed, I am a scrapbook fanatic! I have been known to run with scissors, please don't tell my mom.
