I have heard few love stories that are more whimsical than those of my military friends. I always thought that my husband Jamie and I had an extraordinarily bizarre journey to the altar (and beyond), but throughout the last few years I’ve heard countless stories from fellow military couples about their unique (and often unbelievable) course of events that led them to where they are today. I’m thrilled to feature a new story every week in a series called We’re Not So Crazy After All: A Military Love Story. If you’re interested in being featured in this series, please email me at WhimsicalSeptember@yahoo.com.
Before Danny hopped a plane to Germany to spend the next three years serving in the Army, he wanted to say goodbye to his sister. When he couldn’t get in touch with her, he showed up at his sister’s friend’s house to see if she was there. His future wife opened the door.
“He asked me what my boyfriend’s name was because he assumed I was with somebody. He was pretty happy when I told him that I was single!”
Kayla and Danny plan to do a vow renewal ceremony and big celebratory reception for their 10 year anniversary.
Kayla & Danny were our next-door neighbors while we were all stationed at Fort Campbell, and I’ll never forget the first time Kayla casually told me their “how we met” story. I loved it hearing it again even more! They’re currently stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
Thank you for letting me share your story!

Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to three little girls (ages 7, 4, and 1) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
