My name Is Michel, I am a full time student majoring in education, a full time wife to my airman, and a full time mother to our two fur babies for now! I am a southern girl at heart and proud of it. I enjoy just about any outdoor activities, and love basketball. Coffee is definitely my weakness, especially here in the North West. I adore my husband and our family. We miss them much but enjoy our life in the Air Force.

My Airman, a lovable, caring, sweet, car loving, hardheaded man! : ) but he is my world. He is a boom operator in the Air Force and so far he loves his job. When he isn’t working he is probably working on his car, or on the internet finding things for his car. He is crazy, but you just can’t ask for a better husband.

Highschool sweathearts, that stuck together trough it all and ended up falling head over heels for each other. Married on November 23, 2009 and loving our wild and crazy life as two southerners living in the Northwest!

My Hero's

As we all know today is Veterans Day and as growing into the military life I have learned to appreciate this holiday so much! I use to never think twice about this holiday and just thought of it as a day out of school. But now my perspective has changed and I appreciate everyone you has served and is serving for our country more everyday! I am not going to lecture every one about how the day came about, but share some quotes instead.

But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for,
Is their monument to-day, and for aye. ~Thomas Dunn English

It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.  ~Author unknown, sometimes attributed to M. Grundler

In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.  ~José Narosky

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.  ~Elmer Davis

I think there is one higher office than president and I would call that patriot.  ~Gary Hart

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.  ~Cynthia Ozick

Lord, bid war's trumpet cease;
Fold the whole earth in peace.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!  ~Maya Angelou

The more we sweat in peace the less we bleed in war.  ~Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit

Courage is almost a contradiction in terms.  It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.  ~G.K. Chesterton

In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned.  When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.  ~Mark Twain, Notebook

"I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, "Mother, what was war?" - Eve Merriam
