Milspouse Blog Hop


Hello, and welcome to chambanachik! 
First order of business: Happy Milspouse Appreciation Day!


If you're new here or happened to find me through the link-up, I'm so glad you stopped by. 
My name is Erika, and this blog is a place where a shy introvert can chatter away 
about motherhood, marriage, military life, and anything else on my heart. 
(You can read more about me here, or browse posts that will get you caught up to present day life here.) 

I have a husband named Sky, who is currently in the Army Reserves, 
and we've been through quite a lot in our 2 1/2 years of marriage. 
I also have a daughter named Millie, and I'm quite smitten with her. 
Other than those two, my passions include photography, reading, 
and watching old movies (It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite). 
If you'd like to connect with me, check out my Facebook page, Twitter, or Pinterest account.

If you are here for the first time or have just recently started reading, please leave me a comment; 
I'd love to know more about you, too!

If you'd like this button for your own blog,
you can find it and many others in my buttons tab-
there's one for every branch!

Thanks to Household Six Diva and Riding the Roller Coaster for hosting this link-up party!

Hello Erika!! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog or I would have never got to experience your wonderful blog!!! I am so envious of your photography work! I am just now just trying to figure out now what is the perfect camera (im such a beginner..LOL) My hubs is from Southside Chicago and I am from Southern IL in Carbondale area. We miss IL and the weather so much! I look forward to going through the blog journey with you and keeping up and reading your posts!

First, I'm a shy introvert too! And second, I was OBSESSED with the name Sky when I was a kid. Like, swore that would be my first child's name and everything. (I was probably 8) And then forgot about it until I read your post:)

What a cute blog you have here! I was looking around and saw the photo of your little one with the Daddy Doll and it melted my heart, my kids all have one too.

Thanks for coming by my blog from the Milspouse Appreciation hop!
