Boots on the Ground

Here we are - starting this adventure into the blogging world. It took two years for some of my friends to convince me to get a Facebook account - two years ago, blogging was far from my mind. Actually, it was not too long before that I googled "blog" because I didn't know what it was. So, at least you know where I'm coming from!

I had the idea to start a blog about my adventures as a military wife and momma in the middle of the night when I was up with my newborn. I do most of my thinking in the middle of the night. Honestly, it's the only time that I actually have the quiet I need to put a decent thought together.

Hopefully A Troop's Girl will be a good outlet for me. My goal is for it to be a constructive use of my time and experiences as a wife to a guardsman preparing for his fourth deployment overseas - the third since we've been together. The last two deployments were rough for me and I hope that with a place to let my heart go, maybe my experiences will encourage you in some way - whether you're a military dependent or not.

So, please come along for the ride. There are sure to be some bumps, but I hope not too many. My prayer is that this journey will be a great time of growth.
