Welcome visitors from the Military Spouse Appreciation Bloghop! I’m happy to have you! If you’re not familiar with this bloghop, it is for Military Spouses and takes place on Military Spouse Appreciation Day (today!) hosted by Riding the Roller Coaster and Household 6 Diva. However, you don’t have to be a military spouse to show your support! If you’d like to participate, just go write yourself an intro post, sign the Linky, then join the fun by surfing some lovely new blogs! Also be sure to post a button in your sidebar to be eligible for one of the wonderful sponsored giveaway items!
I’m Laura and I’m wife to Michael. Michael is a Master Sergeant in the Air Force. I have been married to Michael for his entire 12 year military career which began in 2000. Our journey started before 9/11 and before the recent war situation. These last 12 years have definitely been an ever changing, exciting and sometimes lonely experience. We are currently enduring a deployment that will bring him home in the early part of this summer. I have never been more proud of someone as I am of Michael’s accomplishments!
I’m joining in this bloghop because I feel that community is incredibly important and valuable, especially in the life of a military spouse. I want to say THANK YOU to those of you on this very important and like-no-other journey of being a military spouse. You (yes YOU) are valued and appreciated!
Michael and I have three amazing children. They are Jacob (8), Eli (turning 6 in 2 weeks) and Rachael (3). We were married in 2000, just 11 short days before he left for BMT. We’ve survived several deployments and we’re on our 4th duty station (we are currently at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio). I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom and count it a blessing every day to be able to spend these precious years with our children. Here on the blog, you’ll find me posting about military life, homeschooling, homemaking, cooking, baking, parenting, natural living, real food eating and living out our faith and belief that our lives should be God directed and Christ centered.
During our last deployment, I wrote a series on Preparing for Deployment, if you’re in that season of military life, I encourage you to have a look at it.
I hope you’ll visit more of the lovely spouses who have joined the bloghop and leave them some love in their comments.
