Where to start? God has blessed me beyond measure. As a 20 something Navy wife, I'm married to my Hospital Corpsman, Doc Handsome, for over two years now and together over three. We have one amazing (I might be a tad biased) little boy, Mini Doc Handsome, born October 2009. Although I am mostly defined by my titles as wife and mother, I am also a daughter, sister, Godmother, friend, granddaughter and above all else, thankful to God for everything he has provided. I work part time, go to school full time, and play the roll as mamma and wife all the time!
We just survived our first 10 month deployment. While Doc Handsome was gone, I went through pregnancy and gave birth to Mini DH. Four months later, Doc Handsome came home. I'd say my life is dedicated to my husband's pride for our country and our little man. Finishing school and teaching elementary school lies ahead in my future. I hardly know all there is to know about being a Navy wife but I certainly enjoy the frustrating yet exciting life that the military has offered thus far.
I started this blog as a way to keep our families who live far in touch with our daily life. It's grown to much more than that and now I've found connections through other gals who share the same way of life as myself. I'm not into the follower count or award winning. It's just not for me. I do enjoy reading others experiences and trying to share mine as much as possible.

Family pictures have arrived
We had some first family pictures taken a couple weeks ago in honor of Mini DH reaching his six month mark. I finally have them all back and thought I'd share. These were extremely important to me because up to this point we haven't had any family pictures taken of us. No maternity, no newborn, and no happy parent pictures. I am so excited we now have pictures of our little family.
In case you're going, "What the heck are the swirlies on his uniform!" that is where I blurred out rank, ribbons, etc. We also had some portrait pictures done of just Mini Doc Handsome here on base (they were having a discount priced for military) so when I get around to scanning those they will be here too. They turned out adorable.
