As a young girl, I never thought too much about my wedding day. I knew that one day it would most likely happen, but I didn’t really give it much thought or dwell on that day. Once I was out on my own and in college, I met a boy who took my breath away and changed my life forever. Here we are, almost 14 years later, still as happy and in love as can be. That man is my husband, my hero.
If you would have told me I’d be married to a man in the military when I was young, I wouldn’t have believed you. I didn’t know anything about the military and never thought I’d be swept away in love by a member in the military. But I was, and I’ve loved every minute of it. Well, not every minute. You see, as a military spouse, you go through so many trying and testing times. You cringe every time you hear the words, “Honey, I need to talk to you.” You almost immediately suspect another deployment or long TDY away from home. Life as a military spouse is like a roller coaster ride — it has it’s ups and downs. However, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s the life I chose and the life I love.
My husband and I share so many wonderful memories together when he’s home. One of our favorite things to do is have coffee in the morning together with a splash of Coffee-mate liquid creamer. We find that during these coffee moments, we are able to talk about life, our future, our goals, and our dreams. There’s really nothing better in life then sitting down sharing a cup of coffee with your best friend. During these flavorful moments, we dream about the days in the future as an older couple, sitting on the front porch looking out at God’s beautiful creation, all while sipping on a hot cup of coffee.
I am so proud of my husband and cherish all of the days I get to spend with him. I admire his courage to serve our country and respect his desire to help others always. I’m proud to be his wife and my girls are proud to call him, “Daddy.”
This Independence Day, we will be celebrating in style together with Coffee-mate! Coffee-mate is donating to a fantastic organization called Operation Homefront. This organization helps provide assistance to wounded military members and their families. Coffee-mate has decorated their French Vanilla & Hazelnut liquid creamer bottles and their Original powder creamer in patriotic stars and stripes. These bottles will only be available at Walmart through Independence Day while supplies last!
You can find the patriotic Coffee-mate creamer bottles at Walmart in the cold section located near the milk products!
Who is your hero? What flavor of Coffee-mate liquid creamer would you want to try? French Vanilla or Hazelnut?
