The awkward truth…

Here’s the awkward truth about being a military wife, it’s lonely.  Of course in the literal sense I am alone, but in the subtle ways which you take for granted.

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome along. I don’t know how you found me, but I’m glad you did. I’ve created this place to blog about life as an air force wife and to gain other peoples experiences. Why now?  I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but now because, true to form, the air force have yet again messed … Continue reading
