When are we going “home”?

When you are a military family, you get a lot of questions, especially from your own children, as they start to recognize that their lives are different than the lives of their peers.

Confidence building is one of those things that I am simultaneously proud to say I am working on and ashamed to say I struggle with. What a mess of emotions that comes with struggling with self esteem and being confident.Continue reading “Confidence, a work in progress”

Confessions of a Negative Nelly

If you know me outside of my writing, or even just from my writing, you would know that most people would tend to disagree that I am a “Negative Nelly”.
