To my lovely readers,

After much prayer and consideration, Semper Wifey is shutting down.  It's been an incredible six years in the blogging world, and I am proud to be considered one of the first "military wife bloggers" out there.  I've grown leaps and bounds in my faith, my writing, and just in myself through this blog.  I've met and read many wonderful bloggers and am so grateful for everything I learned from them. 

Thank you all for your incredible support throughout the years.  I hope you'll continue to pray for me as  I continue to focus on my family and pursuing other writing endeavors.  

"Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow."  -William Shakespeare

A Christmas homecoming...

When homecoming meets Christmas, it is very merry, indeed!

My sweet friend, Hadassah, from Whimsical Walls Art sent this awesome car decal to me for our homecoming.  It's fully customizable and added that touch of whimsy that I just love to our car.  I loved all the smiles and waves this brought when we were driving to pick up Hubby, and Hubby loved that even the car was decorated for his homecoming.  It was so easy to apply and remove.  I'll definitely save it for our next homecoming...and maybe even for some random day that I want some more of those great smiles from strangers. ;)  Whimsical Walls Art is a homecoming shopping MUST!!! 

Card Store generously let me choose and design a homecoming card for Hubby!  I chose one with mistletoe because, well, a military homecoming and Christmas just screams "mistletoe!"  Card Store lets you customize greeting cards for any occasion or "just because" reason!  You can choose a design and/or upload your own picture, write a message, and they'll even mail it for you!  It couldn't be simpler to create a personalized greeting card!

The Albums {Review}...

The Albums is a new photo sharing site with a goal of housing lasting memories in a user friendly and beautiful online setting.  Founders Andrew and Sarah sought to capture the essence of flipping through old family photo albums at a relative's house, drinking a cup of coffee, and reminiscing about each memory in the album.  

"What we wanted was a place built just for families that could capture the feeling of looking through those old photo albums," explained Andrew and Sarah. "Not necessarily as a storage site for every single one of the pictures we take, but as a place to keep and remember our favorite moments and to share them with our best friends and our families at home."

I recently had the opportunity to try out The Albums.  The simplicity of it's conception, design, and ease of use is remarkable.  You can see my album here

I totally get the old photo album/coffee/reminiscing vibe that Andrew and Sarah were going for when they created The Albums.  This will definitely be a lasting picture legacy for your family.  And for us military families, one less physical photo album to pack up and move every PCS. :)

Maternity style {Semper Stylish}...

No, I haven't been pregnant in a while.  (Confession: I forgot to post this months ago.)  I usually loved getting dressed when I was pregnant because it made me be really creative.  I found that just a few maternity shirts, belly band, wedges, belt, and/or big ol' earrings, could turn most of my clothes into some stylish maternity wear.

Now, for your viewing pleasure...I give you my maternity style. ;)

And lest you think I always look so adorable, it's only fair for me to show you what I wore a lot of the time.
