An Almost Fresh Start

This is my first official post on the new blog. It would be intimidating, but I imported all of my old posts from GI Joe's Wife. So basically....nothing has changed but the name and URL! 

Despite everything being so much the same, I'm excited! I suppose the reason for that is that I haven't felt like just 'GI Joe's Wife' for a while now. I mean, obviously I'm still married. Joe is still in the Army and we're living the military life. I don't think I realized this 2 or 3 years ago, but a lot changes when you have kids. I feel like I'm so much a different person than I was back then. This isn't a bad thing...it's just different. Actually, I think it's a really good thing. 

These kiddos of mine have put a lot of things into perspective, and they make me think about my daily choices. They also make me think about the choices I made long before they were even born...and sometimes how I think I'd feel if they did similar things. That's normal, right? ;-)

Anyway, when I created my blog 5 (5?! Sheesh!) years ago I was a newlywed. 

Now? We're weeks away from celebrating our 6th anniversary, we have 2 sweet little girls, we've moved 4 times, lived in 3 different states, and survived a 12 month deployment. Life is most certainly different. I'm different. We're different. 

And so, things change. I will always be GI Joe's wife, but I'm now also a mom who is raising arrows. 

Welcome to the new blog. I hope you'll stick with me on this crazy journey; I've enjoyed sharing it with you thus far!
