My name is Claire, I have a BA in history and Latin. I love my family and friends and wouldn't be where I am today without them. I am a Christian, but I am not perfect, and I am fairly personal about my spiritual beliefs. In 2008, I met the love of my life, Jake, in Latin class, we started dating that December, we got engaged in April of 2010 and married on June 5th of that year. Jake is a medic in the Army, he is currently deployed with the National Guard, however we are trying to go active duty as soon as he gets back. We know that the Army is our calling as a couple, even if at times I get grouchy about it. I try to be as positive as I can be, but there are days that it is hard for me to be positive. This blog is where I share my random thoughts, my rants, and my pictures, so please enjoy, but understand that I am going through something difficult, so please try not judge me.
