Bloom Where You Are Planted – 5 Things To Make A New House Feel Like Home

Military Spouse Life, PCSing
Bloom where you are planted! This statement rings true for military families. Every 2-3 years we are expected to uproot our families and move to a new place. This is definitely one of the hardest things about military life. It is hard to say “goodbye” to our home we have lived and made memories over the past few years. Seeing the stark white walls of military housing or moving to a new house can often be intimidating. With each PCS there are five things I would recommend doing to make your new house feel like home. Unpack your kitchen! One of the first things I always did was get my kitchen unpacked. I would even be unpacking it while the movers were there unloading the trucks. Everything went into the…

Milspouse Love Story-Jesse and Rebecca Hyde

Military Spouse Life, Military Spouse Love Stories
My husband and I met when we were teenagers.  Little did I know this handsome, cocky guy- who started out as "just a friend", would turn out to be my best friend, my mentor, my lover, the father of my children, and definitely my better half.   At 18 years old he joined the Navy and left a small town in Mississippi to move on to bigger and better things. In September of 1998, I joined him in Great Lakes, IL to begin our military journey and never once looked back.  I had no way of knowing what great things this man of mine would accomplish; but I knew I wanted to be by his side while he did it.   I've learned many things from him during our years together: I've learned…

Milspouse LOVE STORY-Megan and Sean Slaton

Military Spouse Life, Military Spouse Love Stories
Our love story starts off pretty typical-we met through a mutual friend. We met in 2013 while he was home on Christmas leave and every time he was home after that we all hung out together. I was with someone else at the time and he had just gone through a break-up. But he was always so sweet and fun so I enjoyed his company. On his Christmas leave in 2015, he came over to hang out with all of us. He told us he was preparing for a deployment a few weeks later. I hugged him tight before he left and he told me to reach out if I needed anything.  By the end of January, my relationship I had been in took its final bow. My ex was…

Milspouse Love Story -A Knight In Shining Armor

Military Spouse Life, Military Spouse Love Stories
6 years ago, I was in a broken place until a man who I met when we were 12 years old found me on Facebook. I was his first kiss and after his 13th birthday. I never saw him again. It wasn't until he in boxed me and asked me a couple of questions. I answered him because it’s only a few who would have known this tomboy 🙄. He said to me, "thank you for being so kind to me when we were kids. I have been looking for you for years." I smiled and didn’t take anything out of it. Months down the line he put in my inbox, "I know it’s early but I’m trying to lock it down." I was like, "yeah right." We were both…

Military Spouse Entrepreneurs You Should Know

Military Spouse Entrepreneurs You Should Know

Military Spouse Life
Military spouses are knocking it out of the park. Between juggling the homefront, navigating new locations, and all things between, many are also entrepreneurs. That's right. Military spouses are building their own businesses and making a FABulous impact in the world. We want to highlight some military spouse entrepreneurs you should know: Dawn The Tour Guide Often military families stationed in and around Washington, D.C. find the traffic, crowds, and public transportation systems intimidating.
