Well, the announcement has been made and my first post published, so I suppose it’s time to let you all know about the exciting project on which I have embarked.
I am a newly-minted SpouseBUZZ contributor! I have been a reader of this “virtual destination where spouses click, connect and share their experiences” since its early days, when I was engaged to my handsome Student Naval Aviator and looking for anything and everything to get me up to speed on the unfamiliar milspouse terrain ahead. Being able to read posts by authors from all walks of military life opened my eyes to the nigh-infinite variety of the military spouse experience. I credit SpouseBUZZ with giving me a wider perspective through its small slices of life married to each branch of the service and in every conceivable combination of Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve.
And now I get to share my perspective on All Things Milspouse from the vantage point of a gal whose husband wears fireproof pajamas to work. I’m humbled and excited, not to mention a wee bit nervous. With the opportunity to have a discussion with a smart, involved community like that of SpouseBUZZ comes the possibility of making a complete ass of myself in front of those same smart, involved people, if I’m not careful. Luckily for me, it’s also a warm and welcoming group of readers, and I can’t wait to get to know them better.
Please stop by and visit, and do let me know what you think of my first post, in which I admit to the whole world that I was a total doofus when it came to navigating certain interactions with a fellow military sweetheart. Fun stuff, right?
