To start...

I am starting this blog because seemingly out of nowhere my husband and I decided that the Army would be a good career for him. (We are both 26 and have been living in Tuscaloosa, Al for quite a while.) He is in Missouri now, completing his AIT training to become a military police officer, and though what he is doing is WAY more difficult than my role here, I am left, all alone, to field the numerous and sometimes intrusive questions/comments people like to ask/say. (For example, "Why in the world would you let him do that?" Or "Aren't you afraid he could die?" or my personal favorite, "Make sure you..." followed by whatever expert advice this person has about military life, moving, finding a job, etc.) I don't mean to come off as rude, as I really do love sharing our story; it can just be exhausting sometimes. So, I wanted to start a blog to tell our story, share our adventures, and most importantly give God the credit for His guiding hand in all of this. Also, I wanted my students, coworkers, zumba ladies, and other people with whom I won't regularly communicate to be able to keep up with me and Seth. Well, here's the initial post, and I will be posting more soon!


  1. Lindsey I cant wait to keep up with you and Seth! I am so happy for y'all! Prayers continue!

  2. I just found your blog.... Military life is hard and very rewarding, I would be lieing if I said I didn't love the military lifestyle. The hubs and I in the works of receiving active duty orders now and I couldn't be more excited.

    1. Yeah, my dad was a marine so I kind of knew what we were getting into. Let me know where y'all end up! Wish you both the best!
