Welcome to My Blog!!

I have absolutely no experience and no idea how to do a blog, but here I go!
So, first of all, I decided to do a blog when I realized I have so many different things going on that it is hard to describe everything  I'm doing and exploring all just on facebook without being very confusing or writing a novel...Also, Shane is out traveling for work (basically deployed) right now so this is the best chance I'll have for starting something like this, on weekends for instance, when most people are doing couple-dy type things :)

So! The name of the blog/blogspot, This is Your Life...This is Your Life On The Navy...Remember  that commercial way back in the day (This is your brain, This is your brain on crack...where the guy cracks the egg into the skillet and cooks it?...everyone remembers that one)....Well, that is how I'm feeling lately! Not necessarily a direct comparison in a negative way...but basically that the Navy has changed our lives in such an extreme way! It has turned my life into a sort of extreme sport I would say, it feels like...definitely feels like what I imagine a shot of cocaine would feel like to someone's body, in that moment, without the direct comparison of the devastating consequences it has to their bodies and lives over time afterwards (not that the Navy doesn't come with its downsides too at times..just not quite 'that' down...!) I have done and seen more in this short life span that Shane and I have been married and in the Navy lifestyle than I could ever have imagined. It has forced me to open up and grow, meet new people, do new things that are out of my comfort zone, and I think it's about time I blog a little bit about the places we get to travel to and the fun (and challenging) things I get to do in this crazy adventure we're living! :)
