My name is Sara and I'm 28 years old. My hubby's name is Joe. He's a SGT in the U.S. Army. We are both originally from Arkansas. I have a yorkie named Rigel. He's 5 years old. He's named after a star in the Orion constellation. We don't have any kids yet, so he's my little ball of love. I just adore him! I have a psychology BA from the University of Arkansas and just graduated with a Master of Arts in psychology. Oh, and I lived in Kansas for two years and never saw a tornado. LOL!!
A little bit more about my Army wife experience...
From many of the other Army wives I've met, I'd like to say that I'm not your typical Army wife. I see a world outside of my husband's career, and some wives I know just dont agree. I might have different views, but isn't that was makes the world go round? I'm very lucky that my husband knows my education and career are very important to me. I will follow him to the ends of the Earth, but who's to say I cant rule the world while I'm at it? So I might say some stuff that isnt normal for an "Army wife" to say, but its not to offend or anger, it's just my view from right here and right now.
The label "Army wife" has a few very specific connotations to it. Hasty generalizations can be made. We all do it, I'm guilty too. But I'd like to say on the record, they're all so completely wrong. I hope to show that with this blog. The label it's self bothers me. Are we all cookie cutter images of each other? Of course not. We're all individuals. So yes, I am an Army wife, but only because the man I love is an Army soldier. It doesnt define me or make me who I am.
I'm very proud of my husband and everything he stands for. But the Army isnt what I thought it would be. And I hope to explain that statement with this blog.
