Tell us a little bit about your military spouse journey.

My husband is in the Army. He recently returned from a deployment to Iraq. He has served in the Army for 13 years. I have been a military spouse for eight years.

What are the challenges of being a military spouse?

The biggest challenges of being a military spouse for me include taking care of my two small children alone while he is deployed, PCS’ing to some far away place, in our case Hawaii, away form most family and friends, and taking care of my husband once he became a wounded warrior.

What are the best parts of being a military spouse?

The best parts of being a military spouse is meeting new people all the time and traveling to places that you may never get to visit otherwise.

To what extent have blogging and social networking affected the military spouse experience?

Blogging has allowed me to meet and network with so many great people. It has also given me the chance to help my family financially and work with some awesome companies in the process.

If someone you care about was about to marry a military servicemember, what one piece of advice would you give?

Prepare yourself to be apart from your spouse, keep every piece of paper given to you from the military, never lose your ID card…EVER, enjoy the moments you get to spend with your spouse and family and the places you get to travel!
