Hey there! I never really know how to introduce myself properly but here it goes. I am originally from New York but when my husband joined the Marine Corps we had to move to Jacksonville, NC. I absolutely love the south. The people are nicer, the weather is better, and it's a great place to raise a family. Which is why I'm here. My husband and I have a beautiful daughter Abigail Yvonne. He has been deployed for her first year but will be coming home shortly. It will be an interesting transition that I look forward to sharing with you! My life might not be all that interesting but being a mom sure is! Follow my blogs and see what I'm talking about.

My husband coming home from Afghanistan to an 11 month old he’s only seen for a nonconsecutive 4 weeks of her life didn’t go as planned. I expected him to come home and immediately jump into being a dad. It wasn’t until about 4 months of him being home before …
