Cherishing Moments Together with Coffee-mate

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.”

Who is your hero? What flavor of Coffee-mate liquid creamer would you want to try?  French Vanilla or Hazelnut?

    My husband retired from the Air Force last year, so current soldiers and retired vets hold a very special place in my heart.

    I not only give people enlisted in the military props for what they go through but I also give their spouses and family props, too, because that’s a hard lifestyle to live! When you meet someone you know is the one though, you’ll do your best to work with whatever circumstances you’re given :)

    I have grandparents, uncles and cousins who were all in the military. They served in the Korean War, Desert Storm and in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is such a great way to pay tribute to them.

    Beautiful post. My husband is a Veteran and many members of our family are past and present service men and women. Supporting our Military is so important!

    Awe, your post made my heart melt. I know so many military wives that say the same thing about TDY talk… LOL. I am so happy that Coffee Mate is joining in such a great campaign. Thanks for sharing your story and your ‘Hero’ with us!

    Sometimes those few precious moments we have together sipping our coffee is our only quiet/alone time until bedtime that night so we try to enjoy it. We thank your husband for his service too!

    My heart always goes out to military families. My brother is now medically retired from the Marines after being in an explosion in Iraq. Congrats to you and your husband for so many years together!

    What a great story! My brother is in the Marines and he’s had two tours overseas and it is hard. Thank you and your husband for everything!! #client
