UPDATE JANUARY 2017:
I’m still here and posting as often as I can! Maybe this year I can even manage a post or two a week. I can always hope…
When my son was a newborn, I started blogging as a creative outlet. I wasn’t used to being at home all day long, and blogging helps me stay sane! It’s fun, and I continue to utilize the skills I’ve gained working as a public affairs specialist in the Army Reserve and as a teacher. I enjoy sharing my life experiences with others, and I also love to review time-tested and innovative products that make life easier for moms!
I prefer to categorize myself as a “lifestyle” blogger rather than “mommy” blogger, since being a mom doesn’t define all that I am. You’ll find my blog covers numerous topics: parenting/motherhood, military-life, fitness, baby, family, food, cloth diapers, DIY, eco-friendly products, product reviews, giveaways, and more.
One feature I’ve been working on is a “Family Outing” page. The Hampton Roads area (where we used to live) is home to numerous military installations: Naval Station Norfolk, Naval Air Station Oceana, Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, and several more. With so many military families constantly moving into the area, I thought it might be helpful to others if I listed family-friendly places to visit, and so the Family Outing posts began. Over time, I’ve expanded those posts to include the DC/Maryland area, even Pennsylvania and Orlando…basically, anywhere we get the chance to travel!
Thanks for visiting!
