On Friday night, after publishing a post that I was really proud of and thought would be really helpful to others, I received my first hate. It came in the form of a comment that said, in essence, that I shouldn't be calling myself an army wife if my partner and I were broken up.… Continue reading My First Hate
I've only ever been in one long distance relationship. And it just so happens to be the one I am currently in. The phrase 'long distance relationship' is something that strikes fear into the heart of every couple, but even so some people swear by it. Some people even have entire relationships without ever meeting… Continue reading My Experience With Long Distance Relationships
If you follow my blog, or even just occasionally read my posts, you probably know that my boyfriend is away at the moment. He's been gone for two weeks, and I've been handling it a lot better than I thought I would. I give myself ten points for keeping it all together. But today my… Continue reading 2 Week Phone Ban
I don't really like the idea of doing something for somebody. Don't get me wrong, I love giving people presents or helping them with their uni assignments or paying for their coffee.

There are a lot of things that go hand in hand with army life. Long working hours. Having loads of khaki items lying about the house. Spending time away from home.

Today I got up at four a.m. and drove my boyfriend to the army base. I was in a very grumpy mood, not only because I was up before any sane person should be, but because I was leaving him there so he could go on an exercise for six weeks. That's army life for… Continue reading Spending Six Weeks Solo
Weekends always feel like they fly by so fast for me, and I know that this weekend in particular will feel just like that. Weekends are the time when I can focus on self care and catching up on things around the house that didn't get done during the week. I have a firm rule… Continue reading What I’m Doing This Weekend
One of the biggest stereotypes about army life - or just military life in general - is the army wife culture. We've all heard the stories about catty fights in facebook groups and spouses who overstep the mark. There's this whole big idea about how any army town is awash with army wive and that… Continue reading Where Have All the Army Wives Gone?
Having a partner in the army is hard. Having a partner who never talks about their feelings is hard. Having a partner with a Scorpio moon sign is hard. From the amount of complaining I do here on the blog (and in real life too) it can be easy to assume that we are a… Continue reading The Power of Positive Thinking in My Relationship
I've been really sick this past week, a combined effect of changing meds, catching a cold, and it being that time of the month. Because of this I've spent a lot of time at home, doing a whole lot of nothing, and feeling pretty sorry for myself. As a result of this, I spent more… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
