I’ve seen this tag on YouTube a few times while watching military spouse channels & I thought it would be fun to do it! Today I’m gonna be sharing my answers to the military spouse tag! Lets get started…
Q: How did you and your spouse meet? Troy and I met at a winter retreat that we both went on with our church.

Q: Where are you and your spouse originally from? I was born in Yakima, Washington & moved here at age five. Troy was born and raised here in Arizona!
Q: How did you feel about him joining the military? I automatically thought of the long times apart we would have to go through, and the risk of losing him. Ultimately though, I will always support his decisions, and it makes me happy knowing that he is doing something he is passionate about!
