The Power of Positive Thinking in My Relationship

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

My Boyfriend Bought a Bonsai

I love plants so much. They are my favourite thing to go shopping for, and the first thing I like to buy when I'm feeling down. At the moment my house is full of plants. I am lucky to have lots of natural light where I'm living at the moment, so every room has greenery… Continue reading My Boyfriend Bought a Bonsai

I’m Trying Really Hard

I'm trying really hard to love the location that my partner and I are currently posted at. Or at least to like it. We've been here for six months now, which is almost as long as we were at our last location, but it still feels like I haven't settled in here. I've found so… Continue reading I’m Trying Really Hard

Thankfulness Thursday!

Today has been a whirlwhind! The internet has been down all day, and has taken many attempts to get it back. Turns out it is very difficult to tutor, do uni work, or post on this blog without it! I wanted to get this post up much earlier today, but hopefully you will still be… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!

He’s Going Away

A huge part of being an army wife is spending time away from your partner. and last week my partner and I found out that he is going away again. He's leaving in late June and will be coming home in early August, which means we will be spending roughly six weeks apart. As with… Continue reading He’s Going Away

My Anti-Bucket List

I've been feeling pretty trash lately, so I thought I would take some time out to focus on positive things and share them with you. So today I'm creating an anti-bucket list, which celebrates all the things I have achieved so far instead of setting new goals for myself. I'm going to stay within things… Continue reading My Anti-Bucket List

A-Z of Being An Army Wife

A is for ANZAC Day, the busiest day of the year for defense members and their spouses alike. B is for Boots and tripping over them when every pair is left lying on the floor. C is for cams, the best looking of all your partner's uniforms. D is for Deployments and never knowing when one might… Continue reading A-Z of Being An Army Wife

He’s Always Asleep!: An Army Wife Struggle

As I write this post, my partner is asleep. He's only been home from work for about an hour but he's already passed out on the couch. I'm not predicting an awakening any time soon. We do have plans to go to the movies at 9, but for him that means waking up at 8:55.… Continue reading He’s Always Asleep!: An Army Wife Struggle

How I Spent My Easter Long Weekend

I started off my Easter long weekend with a quiet breakfast in the sunshine downstairs. My boyfriend was still sleeping for ages so I just took my time enjoying myself and having a relaxing start to what I knew would be a fun filled weekend! When my boyfriend finally woke up we went to out… Continue reading How I Spent My Easter Long Weekend

Thankfulness Thursday!

As you probably know, the past few months of my life have been pretty trash and I've really been struggling to be happy and stay positive. In an effort to appreciate the things that are going well in my life I've started writing in a thankfulness journal, where I record three things that I am… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!

Army Wife Lessons: Learning the Lingo

Last week my partner and I had drinks with a couple of people from his work once I had finished work for the day. It wasn't anything fancy - just a few beers in someone's backyard, but I was really grateful to just be out of the house and socializing. Before my partner and I… Continue reading Army Wife Lessons: Learning the Lingo

Book Club Number Two

In my continuing endeavor to find myself some friends up here in Darwin, I have found myself another book club to go to. While this might seem like social (and literary) overload to some people, I consider this part of my duty as a 20 year old woman who does not want to spend the… Continue reading Book Club Number Two
