Those are words I never even considered when starting this military spouse journey. The idea of moving during a global pandemic made me queasy- but we had to do it. I had to swallow my fear, trust in God and find a way to keep moving forward. To be honest, it was not as scary… Continue reading PCS-ing During a Pandemic
If you follow us on any of our social media platforms then you heard the amazing news- Justin was accepted to attend Officer Training School!
