My Army Wife Life

Since my blog has received a couple Military Family Blog awards, and I have connected with lots of new people and been getting more involved in the Army life, I have had quite a few visitors from military peeps out there... and I couldn't be more thrilled!  Since my hubby enlisted a couple years ago, I have been looking for new friends to help me a long the journey.  I am pretty sure it takes a life time to really "get" the military way no matter how many books you study, people you talk to, or social events you attend... and Army Wives and JAG can only teach you so much.

My hubby is currently Army Reserves right now as he goes to school and attends ROTC.  After he graduates in a year and half we will hopefully be living on base/ post somewhere doing this full-time.  Ben always wanted to be an engineer until he joined up and now he has found his place in the world's greatest military doing exactly what he loves the most.  (Not to mention looking hot in his uniform).

Here are a few of our adventures so far:
