Am I fashionably late to the Military Spouse Bloghop?
Friends & family who have no idea what I’m talking about… I’m doing some virtual networking! Cool, huh? (Have you ever heard of a bloghop? I think it’s great that household6diva.com and ridingtherollercoaster.com have organized this.)
Those of you who are here for the Bloghop, welcome!
Hi! I’m Lynn. You’ll find me around as “wanderlynn.” I promise I started writing this as soon as I heard about it two days ago, but then my toddler spiked a fever while my husband was TDY and friends from our last base rolled through town (from Hawaii, no less). But you know how that goes.
I met my husband just before he joined the Air Force. The idea of traveling the world was magical! Then we were stationed in Omaha, Nebraska, for our first six married years together. I worked in marketing and started this blog as a little thing to do for fun. (That’s us on vacation in Costa Rica 3 years ago, with no phones, internet or TV. We probably had just hiked a volcano. It was awesome.)
Then (just about) 18 months ago we had our (breathtakingly awesome) son. I refer to him as Prince Walls and other silly things that relate to his name but aren’t his name. One of my grandmas has warned me to “be careful” enough times in my life that sometimes I am. Though I’ve started blogging more in the mean time.
I’m from the Midwest. Somehow it didn’t occur to me that I would stay home with a kid… but I decided to for at least a few months after Slim Dub was born. Then…
We PCSed to England a year ago. Not London, but you all probably get that. I am so glad to have the opportunity to be here!
We’re moving into a bigger house next month and I’m still in the Excited phase. We’ll see how I feel when we start packing.
We have a dog named Plato. He’s ridiculous.
I like to see new places and am starting to figure out how to do it with a toddler in tow. I’m trying to get psyched about history, being in Europe and all, but I’d rather retreat into the woods (with coffee) most of the time. Unless we’re talking about food, in which case, I’m there. Especially if it’s at a farmers’ market.
I write about all of these things here (and post pictures of them over here), and I do hope you stick around! You can snag my RSS feed or sign up for email updates to the right. I do the Twitter, too.
And while you’re here, won’t you tell me a little about your blog in the comments? I’d love to connect.
