May I Go Back, Please?

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to travel to Fort Walton Beach, Florida for SpouseBUZZ LIVE Eglin. Florida, y’all. In January. I left winter behind me for a brief, giddy spell.

The view from my hotel in Fort Walton Beach. To paraphrase Anthony Bourdain, it did not suck.

I met some truly wonderful people there and finally got to put faces to familiar blog names. There was laughter — a lot of it. Everyone involved in the event was kind, compassionate, and completely freakin’ hilarious in equal measure. If SpouseBUZZ LIVE ever comes to your neck of the woods, GO! Grab a milspouse friend or three and gather to hear — and share — some of the best, truest, most head-noddingly “Uh-huh, I’ve been there!” stories about military life you’ll ever find in one place. The room was full of people married to every branch of the service: active duty, reserve, guard, you name it. There was a woman who had been married to her veteran for nearly fifty years and a woman who had married her serviceman only three weeks (to the day!) prior. Everyone had experiences to relate, and I feel privileged to have been able to take part.
