Sometimes you look back at photos from past duty stations and can’t help but think one piece of your heart is still there. I cried going overseas and I cried leaving. It’s the first home where we raised our babies and built a community of friends that became our family. Today that piece of my heart feels so far away, yet so grateful that piece exists at all. ? . . . . #lifeoverseas #oconus #raisingtoddlers #mamalove #babylove #parentinglife #militarywife #militarykids #militaryfamily #okinawa #beachlife #happymoment #missinghome

As we’ve learned as military spouses, having someone “have your six” takes on a whole new meaning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But what about you? Whose “six” do you have?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s certainly nice to be on the receiving end of giving and service, but do you take time to care for others in your life? Do you notice when they’re having a bad day? Or do you follow up when you talk to them and they constantly say they’re “fine,” but you can tell something’s not quite right? Have you considered that a military spouse you know might be lonely and overwhelmed with a deployed spouse or recent PCS? When you do notice other spouses struggling, what actions do you take to show you care?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As military wives, mothers, business owners and more we can tell you that a little bit of love from a friend or family member can go a long way…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out the rest #ontheblog with @springermade ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S.

Young and full of confidence, but not really sure what is to come! I think we both entered military life not really understanding all the challenges to come. And although I loved my time on active duty and still miss it. I know that living the military and transitioning to military spouse and mom was the best choice for our family. It wasn’t easy and some days I regretted my choice, but as time goes on those days are few and far between. I have taken my passion for the military and combined it with my love of writing to encourage and inspire others. There is life after the military even if it is hard to see in the midst of transitioning. How has your life changed from college? Are you doing what you thought you would be doing? #milso #milspouse #milspouselife #miltomil #femaleveteran #airforce #dualmilitary #momlife #airmantomom #lifeafterthemilitary #militarylife #rotc #collegedays #militarycouple
