DH and I met at the Royal Military College of Canada in the new year of 2012. He was a strapping young cadet, and I was a hot young grad student taking the War Studies program by storm. Because there were not many grad students my age, I had asked a professor I was doing research work for, if I could sit in on a Monday morning U.S. foreign policy course he taught – my favorite topic in school – and in which DH was a student. When we first laid eyes on each other he gave me a very greasy once over before plopping down in a seat in front of me. He proceeded to ignore me for the next month and in return I did not pay him too much attention either. I mean, who was this cadet to completely ignore me?! How rude! Instead I talked up everyone around him and that was that.
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 two little girls (ages 5 and 2) 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
