Hi friend! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Brittney and I was born & raised in Texas, y’all (I have to say “y’all,” I’m Texan).
My husband, Codie, and I met in high school and we got married at the ripe old age of 19. Being a young married military couple is anything but easy, but there are so many things we’re grateful for and I love that we get to navigate this crazy, confusing, frustrating, exciting journey together. You can read our love story here.
Isn’t he cute?!
Anyway, mostly due to marrying a military man, I’ve moved 5 times in the last 4 years. I’m a college student working toward becoming a registered nurse, and because of the crazy moves I’ve had a pretty wild college experience! This post talks a little more about my higher education journey along with some advice for other military wives who are trying to earn a degree.
I’m also a caregiver for seniors, an entrepreneur, a blogger, a homemaker, a nap lover, and a kitty mommy.
Too many hats?
I just really love being alive and there’s so much I want to do with my short time on this earth.
My main mission is to empower military wives and help them live a life they love.
Not Instagram filter love (speaking of which, can we be IG friends? @themilitarywifelife). Not tell your in-laws at Christmastime love. Not convince yourself while crying over a bucket of ice-cream with wine & Netflix because your husband is gone love.
But a life they—a life you—TRULY love.
Yes, being married to a service member is hard. Yes, it’s not always fair. Yes, there are moments of sadness, loneliness, and even doubt.
But you’ve got this, military wife.
As cliché as it sounds, you really aren’t alone.
You have a purpose and there’s a reason you’re alive. You’re beautiful, you’re loved, and it really is possible to love a life that’s so full of goodbyes and uncertainties.
I may not have all the answers, but I’d love to help you figure out this wild ride while I (somewhat) figure it out myself.
Here on TMWL you’ll find oodles (does anyone use that word? Guess I do now) of resources and encouragement for military spouses and family members. Make sure you subscribe to gain access to the best resources and in case you didn’t get my hint earlier, let’s be IG friends, ok? (@themilitarywifelife)
Even if you aren’t a military wife, feel free to stick around. There’s plenty of value here for everyone.
Oh and if you feel a little lost right now, this is a good place to start.
