Household6Diva's Blizzard Bloghop 2011 Intro

If you're a new visitor coming to me from Household6Diva's Blizzard Bloghop, welcome!  My name is Erin and you've found me here at Every Branch!

I'm a 30-year-old special ed math teacher living in my dream state of Colorado, courtesy of the U.S. Army!  I'm in my 5th year of teaching and I've taught in California (where I was born and raised), North Carolina, and now Colorado.

My husband is a prior service Marine who re-enlisted in the Army, did his time, and recently got out to join the Reserves.  I started this milspouse blog to share the difficulties and challenges we have faced and are facing as a result of this transition.

I am currently in the process of enlisting in the Air Force Reserve as a 3S0X1 (Personnel), and I've been keeping my readers posted throughout this process.  My recruiter recently found this position for me, so everything is very fresh and I'm gearing up for BMT and tech school this summer.

Notice the variety of military service?  That's why I call this Every Branch.  Between both of our families, we've got it all covered.

Teaching and the military aside, I ride a Harley, have an unhealthy obsession with makeup (check out my other blog, Made-Up In America), love to volunteer with military charities/organizations (the Patriot Guard especially), have a passion for mid-century vintage, and hope to have a family one day (currently struggling with conception).

Thank you for visiting!  I hope you'll stick around and make yourself at home!
