    5 House Hunting Tips

    Last Fall, we moved to San Antonio, courtesy of the Army. Which means that last Fall, I got to have my first IRL “House Hunting” experience. After hundreds of episodes of House Hunters and Fixer Upper, I felt that I was up to the task. And it ended up going smoothly with no major disagreements between my husband and me before the final commercial break. Ok, so there were no commercial breaks. But we did have a very busy, but fruitful weekend full of seeing tons of crappy houses. And a few good ones too. This was my husband’s second time to purchase a house, so he gladly handled the…

Emily is such a sweet person, and it has been great to get to know her a little bit through this interview. We both thought this would be a fun way for us to compare and contrast our experiences as a military and a law enforcement spouse. So at the end of this post, I'll place a link where you can check out her interview with me! I hope you enjoy hearing from a different voice today as Emily shares a bit about her perspective…

Since 13 has traditionally been a good number for me, I thought this would be a good opportunity to share a few of the things I’ve learned in the past year of being a military spouse by giving you this list of 13…

    10 Things To Do When You’re Home Alone (To Avoid Going Crazy).

    I’ve learned a lot about being a military spouse over the past year, but the lesson that I just keep having to learn, is how to enjoy solitude. I’m an introvert, so in some sense this comes naturally, but I really just don’t enjoy being home alone. This is especially true when I know I’ll be home alone for several weeks at a time. And being home alone in a new house, in a new city, far away from all your family and friends only adds to that dread. To combat this, I’ve created a list of 10 things to do when I’m home alone. Hopefully some of these things…

    4 Reasons I Created This Website.

    Hey guys, for my first blog post I decided that I should give you a little information about why I decided to start this website. I’ve outlined here the four main purposes that my brand new website serves. Let me know what you think! 1. As a Professional Resource. Originally, the main purpose of this website was as an ePortfolio for some of my photography and social media work, and that remains one of its primary functions. Over the past several months I’ve been working with a variety of clients doing freelance work ranging from Photography, Graphic Design, Social Media, and Web Management, and I’ve absolutely loved it! I’ve only…
