The Great American Housewife

Posted on

Did you know that recently I have taken a step towards putting myself and my writing out there by joining Happy Homefront as a guest blogger? It is a community website not just for military spouses, but all spouses who thrive during separations from their loved one due to work (cross-country truck drivers, longshore fishermen, those in the airline industry and more! It’s so nice to get to know people who understand the separation we all go through, in different lifestyles!

I am the in-house “Domestic Diva”! An aspiring Bree Van De Kamp, if you will. I blog over there on Wednesdays about things like: recipes I find and love (and hopefully learn to not screw up), dinner party tips and tricks, the importance of handwritten notes, and next week: the awesome pantry we created this weekend!

This week my song for Amber‘s link up is “God Bless The American Housewife” by SheDaisy. Stop on by Happy Homefront, check it out, and join the community! See what groups are over there and how we can support others with similar struggles yet separate lives. 

*As a side note: Thursday morning (tomorrow/this morning) I will be going to yet another Doctor’s appointment for some stuff going on. I’m really scared about this one! It’s some more lab work and I will be on pins and needles until answers come back. Hopefully I will have some answers about my blood work. I just want to have some answers, know what steps we have to take, and work on getting better soon.

[edit: Appointment this morning was better than expected and you can read all about it right here later this evening or tomorrow for sure! Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers! God is good, all the time, friends! ]
