I'm very excited to be hosting MilSpouse Weekly Roundup this week! Thank you to Riding the Roller Coaster for starting this roundup! I have really enjoyed connecting with other MilSpouses.
So about me...
I'm married to a great Navy guy! He has been in the Navy for 17 years. We've been together for 3 years and married for 1 and a half years. I was raised a military brat so I'm familiar with the military life but it is different being the wife.
I work in a church and when we started dating J's good friend thought it was hilarious that rowdy J was dating a girl who worked in a church so he called me Churchy. (I was never supposed to know that but J shared) I thought it was cute so I kept it and incorporated it in my blog.
My husband is currently stationed in Japan on a three year tour until 2013. We refer to it as a deployment because he went solo. We weighed the choices of me going and because of the
boat ship schedule being out to sea a lot and the fact that I have a great support group here (and the fact that our dogs couldn't go) we decided that I would stay here. It is hard but it has really worked out for the best. And it is getting less hard.
In my spare time (what is that) I like to play with my dogs, bead, read, and currently I love learning to dance at Studio Rio.
When we started dating I gave my husband a key chain that said "wherever you go you are my true north." He loved it because he is a navigator in the Navy. That has stayed with us. I even got a compass rose tattoo with his initials at the top. He tells me I'm his rock. So I keep him grounded and he always guides me home. It works for us.
I love reading everyone's blogs so take a moment and link up!! And take some time to read other's blogs some are funny, some a serious, but all are easy to relate to because we're all in it together.
Next week head over to Many Waters to link up with Poe Kitten!
