Growing up, I was not affiliated with the military in any way. After marrying my Army solider 16 years ago, I learned that this life was fun and exciting, but for me, it also came with anxiety and a feeling of overwhelm. Being far away from friends and family, not knowing where you will be or for how long, my spouse’s frequent deployments, and raising three little ones was exhausting! I knew I needed some systems in place to help calm the chaos. Now as a more “senior” military spouse (with the grays to prove it) I’m hoping to be a voice of support and encouragement for younger spouses. Organization is my way to help bring order to the chaos of this unpredictable yet beautiful life.
