I am almost a year into the world of blogging and, like most things I do, I tend to tiptoe in and figure out how things work before anyone notices that I don't know what I'm doing. So apparently blog hop/sharing parties are a way to further link up one's blog to the greater blog world, and since my dear friend Melissa has charted the waters for me I think I can take the plunge.
While I don't usually write about military life issues on my blog, I do feel the need to get some publicity for Coast Guard spouses who are often left out of the military circle, so here I am.
My name is Susan and I have been a Coastie Wife for four years now. My husband, Don, is currently on active duty and stationed at a USCG Small Boat Station in Southern Maryland. Just like all the other military branches we deal with lots of uncertainty in both our day-to-day schedule and the path Don's career may take. We have a lot of "whose idea was this?" moments and a lot of moments where we can't imagine not being a part of the military. The Roller Coaster is certainly a phrase we can relate to.
Don and I are both University of CT alum (where we met) and have been married for almost five years. We have been blessed with our beautiful and amazing daughter Amy, currently 2 1/2, and we are expecting our second child this month.
I am a stay-at-home mom and in my scant free time I love to quilt, sew, crochet, and dabble in any number of other creative projects. I always have something in the works. I really do enjoy keeping house and get a lot of satisfaction out of those small victories in everyday life ("ahha, I found the perfect basket to keep those toys in!"). We also have two feline-types, Juliett and Ollie, who get frequent cameos in my blog as they are in the middle of EVERYTHING.
And with that I will finish up, link up, and see what happens. Thanks for stopping by!
