About her essay, she says, “Being married to the Air Force for nearly a decade has given me a front row seat into the life and struggles of the military family. Feeling disconnected is a common theme for military spouses after they move to a new duty stations. We’ve all been there, some of us all too often. I wrote this story because connecting each other is a gift we give to our fellow spouses. A simple introduction can lead to a lifelong friendship. I wanted to share my story of a life-size game of connect the dots—military spouse style.”
