Honor, Part Three: Privilege

Ashley is a Marine Corps wife. Here is what honor means to her, in her own words:

“When asked to write about honor, I honestly had to Google it. I understand what the word means; however, as a military family, I am constantly surrounded by what many call honorable men and women. They serve and protect our country, which is most definitely an honorable thing. But being around it 24/7 we see so much more than just men and women in uniforms. I see my husband, I see friends, I see normal people, and I see families. Continue reading “Honor, Part Three: Privilege”

Cozy Fall Soups

Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons! It used to be a toss up with spring, but I’ve officially decided that fall takes the cake. In the spring everyone tries to rush the spring dresses and shorts when really it’s too cold still and that’s just uncomfortable for everyone. I feel as though you can ease more comfortably into fall. You also have the buzz of the holidays to look forward to. Plus, I don’t know about you, but the change of weather and the brisk cool air are good for my soul. It’s a healthy change of pace and for some weird reason I feel like I can just breathe better.
