Hello World!

Hi everyone!! Well since this is my first official blog I guess I will start by telling you a little bit about myself....My name is Brittney and I am married to a wonderful man serving in the U.S. Navy. Isaiah is my soul mate, my best friend and my puzzle piece. He understands me unlike anyone else and I am missing him more and more each day that we are apart. I started this blog as a way to help me get through the trials, frustrations, and everyday life of being a Navy wife!! We are currently going through Isaiah's first deployment overseas and all I can say so far is that its definitely a new experience!!! Being separated for so long takes a toll on any marriage but thankfully the Lord has been with us every step of the way. Although it is stressful, frightening and exasperating at times, I feel as though it is all part of God's plan for our lives and something he will help us get through together!! One thing I can say for sure is that when you are separated from the person you love, so many things come into perspective...this separation has opened my eyes and shown me how much my husband truly does mean to me. It has definitely made me appreciate and love my husband even more and made us stronger as a couple, and for that I am very thankful to the Lord. It has also shown me what little control over my life I do have, and dealing with and accepting that is a whole other story!! :) But for now I am doing pretty well and trying to remain positive and faithful in the Lord. Isaiah has been gone since March 3rd so as of today we have been separated for 1 month and 5 days and I haven't lost my mind yet!! lol its a miracle!! :) Anyways he is expected to return home sometime in mid August or early September so I am waiting (impatiently) for him to return home and for us to finally move from California to Virginia where we will be stationed for the next three years!! I can't wait for this adventure in our lives to begin and to experience living in a new place on the complete opposite side of the country, not to mention being able to actually live with my husband and sleep in the same bed!!! haha I know it doesn't sound like much but to me its my dream come true and any military wife knows exactly what I mean!!! Well thanks for listening and I will keep you all updated on the deployment and my everyday life!! Have a wonderful and Blessed day!!


The Navy Wife


  1. My husband has been gone since March 5. He finished training (which was 9 months long) in November, so we moved from Missouri to California, lived together for 4 months and then he left, and he's going to be gone until next March.

  2. Man that is hard. I seriously can't believe all the sacrifices service members and their families make to serve their country.I think most people who don't know anyone in the military don't really understand the depth of the hardships and trials you go through as husband and wife or even just a family member. My husband left for training in October 2009 and I stayed behind in California waiting for him to finish and for us to get our orders. When February came around we finally got them and I was ecstatic! We were getting everything ready to move to Virginia and I even did all the paperwork for our base housing. Then my husband contacted his sponsor and found out that he was being deployed immediately and wouldn't be home until September. Needless to say I was devastated, angry, heartbroken to name a few...and we had already been separated for five months. So now we are apart for another six. So that has been my experience as a navy wife so far!! A lot of waiting and disappointments but I'm learning its part of the lifestyle so I gotta deal and get used to it!! :) As of now were just trying to make it through his first deployment...and were doing pretty good so far. :) I wish you and your husband all the best and a safe return home so you can be together again!! god bless!!
