Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day!! Nobody knows patience and strength like the military spouse.
I’m so excited to be participating in this blog hop hosted by Riding The Roller Coaster and Household 6 Diva. And, like the title of this post, I’m participating in hopes to get to know more of you.
So we need to present a short bio of ourselves… ok! Here I go.
I’m Laura. I am a USMC wife, SAHMommy to my (starting this Fall) kindergartner and twin toddler girls. I love coffee and probably drink way too much of it, if there is such a thing, I’m a complete failure at most crafts but try to do them anyway, and I love love love to garden. Oh and bake. I pretty much live in my kitchen and call it my Mommy Cave.
I am a freelance writer and editor, as well as a social media/small brand rep. We all know how hard it can be to help bring in the bacon, but I feel by doing this I’m doing what I can to help contribute.
Are you like me and your resume looks more like a rap sheet? HA!
My husband and my children are my world and universe. My children amaze me on a daily basis, and I’m forever proud of them. (I should probably write about them more)
Semper Fi Momma: Sure ‘Semper Fi’ is commonly associated with Marines, and yes I am a Marine wife. But SFM’s meaning leans more towards being Always Faithful to ourselves as women. Yes we are Always Faithful to our husbands and their respected branches of service, and as momma’s it goes without saying that we’re Always Faithful to our children; constantly putting their needs before our own. But we have to remember that, especially in this life, we need to be Always Faithful to ourselves. It’s too easy to get completely wrapped up in the military life and lose our identities. I started this blog as a place to always have my own space, and from it I’ve not only watched myself grow and change, but have also found where some of my loves and strengths lie. Like in writing/editing.
I’m also working on a new project, Kodomo Sushi. It’s a slow start right now, but I have some pretty big plans/dreams for this…. so I hope you’ll join me there and through my journey.
(and if you’re looking to connect with my SFM accounts, all the social media icons at the top of this blog have my links attached)
Thank you so much for stopping by!! It might take me a little while to get to all the blogs in the blog hop but I will make it to every single one of them.
Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day!!
Enjoy YOUR day
