Military Spouse Appreciation Day: May 8th

I can’t resist jumping on this band wagon. Julie, Alia and Kathryn are hosting this awesome blog-hop today in honor of Military Spouse Appreciation Day and since I have admired Kathryn’s positive influence on the milspouse community for several years I can’t help myself and have to participate.

My name is Molly and I am the wife to one seriously handsome soldier serving in the United States Army. Military families hold a special place in my heart and I feel they are some of the strongest people on this planet.

One of the things I love most about this military lifestyle is the feeling of community and solidarity I receive from other spouses. There can be such love and support in this group of people and I enjoy being a catalyst that promotes that sense of love.

One of the best pieces of advice I received before we got married was the reminder that you are in control of your own happiness. Choosing this man meant choosing this lifestyle, which also means making a conscious effort to choose happiness. We do this well.

In my family we are gearing up for his next big deployment, but in the meantime we strive to enjoy the everyday moments of happiness. I love to hang out with my husband hiking and exploring new places, spend time with our two fur-children Penny and Crockett, and can usually be found with my camera in hand. Taking pictures is a big passion of mine.



Aside from that, I teach junior high which consumes another big part of my heart.

I’ve been blogging for several years and hope to spread a little bit of joy around by doing so.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out some of the other awesome military spouses on the list, because they rock. You can see the list of other super-hero spouses here.
