I’m taking a different focus for this month’s post. I’m thinking of this as more of a Public Service Announcement… for happier families. I have a fabulous 2-year-old granddaughter and if I’m not traveling for business, I have the privilege of taking care of her on Thursdays. I love it because we get to do […]
People might think I’m a little odd. Not like Steve Urkel odd (child of the 80’s here, yo—however, I don’t look good in suspenders), but I like to think more like “unique.” I do things that make good stories. Because, why not? I’m not just “different” because I went to (and subsequently graduated from) Missouri […]
Like many of you, we love to travel. I don’t have many hobbies, but perusing for our next spot to visit is near the top of my list. Spectacular travel resources is one of my favorite perks of being connected to the Army (like a free National Park Pass!). Today we’re talking military-only resorts run […]

(If you missed Part 1 of this series, be sure to start there!) I was speaking to a person today who told me that once he retires next year he will have more time to start his exercise program. I did ask what was stopping him from starting now. I told him that I had […]
Dear Stranger, You may look at me with three small children on my own and wonder why I look so disheveled. I am holding their little hands and trying to navigate them through a new activity in a new building that I have only seen once. I look and feel every bit of clueless, but […]
My husband and I got married days before my 25th birthday. While I was older than other wives in the same peer group, I felt so young and inexperienced. I felt like a fish out of water. All the acronyms. All the different uniforms and which one was used for what occasion. The rank! I […]
