with as busy as our days get, sometimes the simplest of things get pushed aside. after a long day of grocery shopping, battling traffic and crossing off the many to-do’s on the list, we forget to appreciate those around us.
one of my goals this year was to show more appreciation and give thanks where thanks is due. and let’s be real, no matter how hard our days get, we all have so much to be thankful for.

Veteran’s Day is a day that holds special meaning for me. it’s a day to celebrate those that risk their lives so we can live freely. so, when i get the chance to thank a veteran, i take it. when i get the chance to make them feel special on a day honoring them, i take it.
as an army wife, i feel like i get to glimpse into a whole new world called military life where they speak a foreign language called acronyms. i’ll be honest, half the time [okay, most of the time], i have no idea what is going on or what most things actually mean. but i do understand the long hours, the hard work, the dedication and the sacrifice.
and i do understand there are many acronyms that i am very thankful for, like AAFES Exchange, who lives up to their mission which includes, “where you go we go…” even when overseas,i can have a little piece of home and shop for both everyday and specialty items.
