Netflix binge watching has become a thing in our house. Watching our favorite shows or finding new ones is easy and we can watch them whenever we want to, where ever we are, and right from the palm of our hands. Streaming video content is what we do right? Additionally, we rely on technology more than ever to stay connected, to find information about housing at a new duty station, and learn about the area we will be moving to. Yelp and Google are our friends. So when I created the concept of Moving With The Military, making it a web series just made sense.
So what do we do at Moving with the Military? We are home improvement, lifestyle series that shares the stories of military families and their PCS journey. We post DIY tutorials, as well as PCS tips, and yes, we decorate a room in homes military families, completely FREE for the military family. Why are we doing this you may ask? Because for years I have heard military spouses say "one day we will have a grown up house," or "some day we will have things that isn't held together with duct tape." We PCS so much that items get broken, lost, or furniture will work in one house, but not in another. Families and their kids often times feel like they never have a real home. So I created Moving With The Military to help military families find comfort in their new spaces and show them how much they are appreciated for all that they do.
Military families sacrifice so much from schools to field training, deployments to PCSs. We miss births, first steps, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, graduations to mention a few. We are apart sometimes more than we are together. But we are strong and resilient. We are a family and community that works together, that helps each other in the good times and in the not so good times.
Our military family has embarked on several PCS moves and I am so grateful for it all, even the broken televisions. My husband might disagree with that one though. I am thankful for the experiences we have had and friendships we have made. We would have never met all the wonderful people we now call friends if it had not been for the Army.
I am dedicated to showing military families that they are appreciated and to giving America a glimpse into what military family life is like. HOOAH
All the best,
