Thanking All Those Who Serve

Nov 11, 2015

Every year, we stop to thank our nation’s veterans for their service.  However, this year, I would like to take a moment to thank the spouses of our veterans.  They may not put their lives on the line for our country, but they sacrifice in their own ways.

Spouses send their loved ones into harms way for months or years at a time.  They move on a moment’s notice from post to post.  They take care of their homes, their children, and deal with the loneliness, the worry and the waiting.  And when their loved ones return, a new struggle often begins.

So to all the partners and spouses sacrificing so that others can serve our country, thank you.

    Thank you, Belle! Having missed my husband for 6 months recently while on a deployment, it’s good to know we are also appreciate for our sacrifices.

    As a military spouse who has been following your blog for about 3 years I appreciate this post. My husband has served for 6 years though we are moving on from the military in January. Military life is incredibly difficult, involving much more sacrifice than civilians understand. While we are moving forward on a new journey, I am thankful for the experience but I have seen first hand how much work there is to be done in caring for our veterans and even active duty members. I am grateful everyday that my husband has suffered no major injuries, physical or mental, during his service and deployments, but I have seen far too many men and women damaged by war who have not been cared for as our government has promised. I plan to never stop fighting for our veterans to receive the care they deserve. Thank you, Belle!

    Thanks Belle! I’m pregnant and alone while my husband is deployed. He says the only thing harder than being a Marine is being the wife of a Marine.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
