All is Fair…

11 Jan

I thought about starting a blog when my husband initially deployed, documenting the ups and downs of the 365 days he was away. I didn’t, and at times I regret not jotting down the variety of experiences and emotions I felt over the past year. I started off the deployment with reading books about other spouses deployment experiences. Some were just flat out negative and depressing.  Some were poorly written. One touched my heart and gave me encouragement. I’m not much of a reader to begin with, so reading sentence after sentence about how horrible deployments are, lead me to search for something interesting, entertaining, uplifting. What I found was Kendra Wilkinson’s Autobiography…and in that, I found laughter. Reality TV stars are my guilty pleasure. True story.

So…let’s just set the record straight from the beginning. I did graduate with a degree in journalism, however, ever since studying journalism I have found an intense resentment towards journalist. I hate that they can skew stories and write words that will evidently hurt people. With that being said, the intent of this blog is not for slander or malicious purposes. I will, on the other hand be as open and honest as possible about MY experiences. I decided that if I was going to do this blog, I needed to be real, I needed to be me. Besides, how could I help other women in situations similar to mine if I didn’t give them reality? So here it is. If you don’t like what you read or see, you are in no way obligated to be here. My hopes though, are that I can touch just one woman out there. To lend a helping hand into a variety of topics including; the life os a military wife, deployment management, staying in shape, finding faith, cooking up fabulous dishes, continuing to live while your spouse is away,and of course, the craziness that occurs on an everyday basis in our family. I hope that this blog can provide some insight into this unfamiliar world of Love & War in the 21st Century.
