Benvenuti! I am a military wife and mother of three. I decied to start a blog to record our three year tour in Italy.
I’m a thirty-something native Californian with a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science (that I haven’t used in almost 9 years). While attending college in the L.A. area, I met my dh. He was stationed at Edwards AFB in the middle of Nowhere, CA. Ok, just kidding. It’s in the middle of the Mojave desert, which just feels like nowhere. He got orders to Okinawa, Japan shortly after we met (like a month?) so I hurried and graduated, we got hitched, and we moved all in the span of 2.5 months (well, we dated a total of 6 months before all that). Fast forward through 3 years in Oki (or on the Rock), 4 years in Las Vegas, 3 years in Texas (one of which dh spent in Korea), and here we are in Italy. Oh yeah, and in all that time we had three kids, ages almost 9, 7, and 4.5. A smattering of animals too, none of which were treated nicely by any of the children and so now we are pet free. Though I do want a horse when we get back to God’s Country (yeah, so much for the native Californian bit, I love Texas!).
Anyway, I hope you enjoy keeping up with us and our adventures in Italy! And the rest of Europe of course.
