After five years in the “real” Army (Army life post West Point), we finally got to attend a military ball! Usually military members and their dates attend these types of things every year or every other, but because of Jamie’s frequently rotating assignments we’ve somehow missed out on being able to attend one. When he told me a few months ago that we finally had one on the calendar I was pumped!
I know several people who could really give or take the whole traditional military ball thing, but I view it as one of the perks of Jamie’s military career. I love a good excuse to get fancy with my husband and have a fun night out with friends, and fun was definitely had by all!
Kelsey and I have a mutual Army wife friend who connected us on Facebook shortly before Kelsey moved here back in January. After a bunch of texting and Facebook messaging we had our first “girlfriend date” a couple months ago and totally hit it off! I love how finding friends in the military is so much like real life dating. 😉 We quickly learned that our husbands work together, too! Thanks for connecting us, Angela!
