Hi everyone! My name is Cassy Fiano. I was born in Jacksonville, Florida. My husband and I met when we were twelve, at a birthday party where he fell on the pool deck and broke one of his front teeth. I worked in several different fields until I got married. My husband and I knew that we wanted to have a family and that when we did, I would be a stay-at-home mommy. Last July, we found out I was pregnant, and on the day of my first doctor’s appointment, he deployed to Afghanistan. Unfortunately, during my pregnancy, I ended up with preeclampsia. Luckily, my husband returned the morning of my scheduled induction, so the day he came home from Afghanistan was the day we went to the hospital. 16 hours and a c-section later, we had our beautiful little boy, Benjamin. Being a parent has changed my life. I’ve learned to be more patient; that it’s possible to operate on two hours of sleep, and I’ve also learned that I never really knew what stress was until I experienced a baby crying inconsolably for four hours straight. I’ve learned that looking at my son sleeping in my arms can move me to tears, that I never really loved anyone the way I love my him, and that all of the hard times can be completely wiped away with one little smile. The last four months have been an incredible journey, and I can’t wait to share the rest of it with you!

No one likes moving. It’s a huge hassle — all the packing, the lifting furniture, finding a moving truck. It’s exhausting and stressful even in the best-case scenario. But moving to another state when you’ve got kids? I have come …

I feel like I could run off with the circus sometimes. Now that I have three kids, my life has turned into one massive juggling act. It’s honestly like I don’t have a spare moment to just sit down and …

Moving is stressful no matter what. Moving with three kids, though, comes with its own set of hassles. One of the stressors I’m coming across now is deciding what stuff will stay, and what will go.
We’re having the Marine Corps …

After I don’t even know how many years now, our family is finally going to be leaving Camp Lejeune at the end of the year. The decision was made pretty quickly, and we basically had about a month’s worth of …

I’m usually pretty big on holidays. I love decorating for everything. If I had the money, I’d not only decorate for the big holidays — Halloween, Christmas, Fourth of July, etc. — but for the little ones like Valentine’s …
