1. Mandatory Adventure
If you had told me 5 years ago that I would start a military non-profit, get married, move to California and make Military Spouse of the Year for Camp Pendleton I would have laughed at you. Me get married? Leave my decade plus career? Move from DC? Please, not this girl and absolutely not for some guy and never a Marine, no military life for me! My grandpas were all in the military and I thought, how the heck did my grandmothers do it? Well it’s funny what God packages the love of your life in; for some of us it’s in dress blues.
