Get to Know Me Better

February 19, 2015

Hi everyone!  These pictures don't look like they'd belong on the same post, do they?  Well, they both totally embody my life and they show two different sides of my personality.  The top photos are of my home, while the bottom photo was in Afghanistan near one of Osama Bin Laden's chai houses.  (I saw these gorgeous sunflowers and could not resist taking a picture by them!  Even in uniform and in a combat zone I always tried to appreciate the beauty of life.)

If you're interested in learning a bit more about both sides of my personality, head on over to Marvelous Musings by Johanna.  She's a German blogger who I met through Life with a Dash of Whimsy, and she and I did a Q & A session a while back about my past, the military, and of course, blogging.

Thanks for following along and I hope you enjoy getting to know me a little better :)

  1. I just had to share that I'm also a Conyers native! I've lived in Florida for a few years now, so I really enjoyed your recent Atlanta city guide since it's such a rapidly changing city. Your home is beautiful and it's fun to see your finds from the more mundane places I tend to visit on TDY instead of just major metropolitan cities.

  2. Hey - where did you get the Hey Yall picture? Also, thank you for your service!!!

  3. I'm so honored to be sharing your story, thank you for taking the time!

  4. Love the juxtaposition of the sunflower and uniform pic! I'm pretty sure that picture just about sums up everything about life. :)
