Today, I’m snowing myself in to the Blizzard Bloghop…
My name is Emily and this is my little blog, The Writings of an Air Force Wife.
As cliché as it sounds, this blog is my “happy place”. Every week I sit in the same chair, at the same desk, possibly drinking coffee out of the same mug, and I write. I write and I reflect on all things good and positive in my life. Years from now, it’s the good that I want to remember.
I’ve been married to Ron for (almost) nine years and together we have two beautiful children, Krysta (7 yrs) and William (11 months). We’ve endured six deployments and a handful of TDY’s to the sandbox. The Air Force has given us the amazing opportunity to live in the Great State of Alaska for the past four+ years. We’re currently in the process of PCSing this spring- destination unknown.
I’m a professional commissioned artist. I love painting almost as much as I love milk and cookies. When I’m not painting, my other loves include, in no particular order, freshly brewed coffee, Sunday mornings, photographing my babies, salt air, chunky sweaters on a crisp autumn day, good conversations with friends, laughing until my sides hurt, dirty politics, my husband’s taco recipe, and a good book under a thick quilt.
So, come and stay awhile and read about the life we’re creating!
