My husband and I met on a blind date back in 2008, him as a new airman in the Air Force, and me as a senior in college. One year exactly to the day that we met, we said "I do". By 2010, we had survived 3 deployments, owned a home, and adopted our first dog- Samson. In 2012 we left my home state of Virginia and embarked on the biggest journey of our marriage: figuring out a life on our own on the west coast. Two states later, and four houses, another dog- Luna, we were finally finding a balance in our life when we decided it was the right time to start a family. In August 2014, we found out we were pregnant. In September of 2014, my husband received orders to deploy in 2015 and would miss the birth of our daughter.
At 28 weeks pregnant, we separated for our longest deployment to date. During that time, my world completely shattered. Becoming a mother on my own with my husband overseas at war, was the single hardest moment in my life. But from great struggle comes triumph. And here is where my real story begins.
My mission is now to help women find peace instead of anxiety and to support them in building the lifestyle of their dreams.
