What are some of your ideas for staying connected with family...you know, those people we moved thousands of miles away from? submitted by Live it. Love it (or not). Write About It.
We skype our parents once a week and catch them up on everything we've been up to. If something important happens between then, we try to make a call or I'll email them. I also keep Facebook updated with pictures for our family and friends to see. A couple of my friends and I send care packages to eachother every few months and we also keep up with actual letter writing (because who doesn't love getting a written letter in the mail?!?)
What's the most romantic gift you have GIVEN? submitted by Painting My Canvas
I really don't know. I can't think of anything that is very romantic that I've given him. Usually I get him what he needs or what I know he's been wanting for a while.
Would you encourage your child, if they came to you and wanted to join the military? submitted by Perfectly Imperfect
I don't see why not. I grew up a Marine brat and ended up marrying into the life. My brother enlisted and couldn't be happier with what he chose for his life. I definitely don't think I would discourage it if they wanted to join. I think it's something to be proud of.
What is your least favorite bill to pay and why? submitted by A Little of This, A Little of That
I don't like paying for our base phone. It's one of the few bills we have out here and it's not really that bad, but I always find it annoying.
What is the proudest moment you've had as a military spouse? submitted by Our Okinawa Life
It would have to be the time I went to a BBQ and one of the guys that works with my husband told me that he's a good Marine and he's happy he gets to work with him. It made me feel really proud that they came and told me that. I'm proud of my husband each and every day, but that moment definitely stands out to me.
