Happy Sunday everyone. I hope this new post finds you all in good spirit this wonderful weekend. Happily I have a new guest post in my Military Lifestyle Series. I actually had the extreme pleasure of meeting Kris last month at the mil-blogging conference. So, not only is she a bloggy friend, but she’s now a real-life mil-spouse friend; and I am happy to count her as such. Hopefully we’ll get to meet up again soon! I am so excited to bring you the guest post of another National Guard Spouse. Kris is a wonderful blogger and you can find her over at The New Normal, which was also a finialist in this years Mil-Bloggie awards! Go Kris!! She brings a great perspective that I know so many others out there experience. They are a traditional National Guard family, and also joined up after marriage, which I think is a whole different ball game. She didn’t marry into this, this was a post-marriage decision and I think that’s pretty amazing. Anyway, I could go on and on……but I’ll let Kris. Enjoy!
