New Blog Friday- Brittany

This week I am featuring Brittany from over at Bohemian Transplant. 

Here is a message from Brittany: 

Hello all! My name is Brittany, and very quickly I just want to say a big THANK YOU to Aly for featuring me! I love meeting new bloggers & am looking forward to what's to come!
I blog [semi]regularly over at Bohemian Transplant. I am a 30 year old Army Wife, currently battling infertility. These seem to be my two main identifiers these days.
I have been with my husband for a little over six years, & we have been stationed here at Fort Bragg for a little over five of those years. While Fort Bragg is not the greatest place in the world, it is where I have learned everything I know about life with the military. Just two short months after I moved out here, my husband deployed to Iraq for 15 months. As I chose not to go home during the deployment [hey, I had just moved 3,000 miles across the country from Seattle! I wasn't about to make that trip again!] I was quickly thrown into life as an Army Spouse. Exactly one year after he was home, he deployed again for another 12 months. It's safe to say that I a seasoned Army Spouse and I love meeting & talking with new spouses in any branch of the military!
About three years ago, my husband & I decided to jump on the baby band wagon. What we thought would be an easy process turned out to be rather difficult. That first year started off exciting & fun, but quickly turned to obnoxious & frustrating. Two days after my husband left for his second deployment, & one year after we started trying, I found out I was pregnant only to miscarry at 10 weeks. We have not gotten lucky again & have recently started the official infertility route. My days are full of ovulator predictor kits, pregnancy tests, drugs to make me ovulate more, temperature taking & a lot of wishing & hoping that our turn will come. In the mean time, we have three adorable fur pups that we spoil rotton & love like our crazy kids!
Because I am so new to the infertility battle, it has become the majority of what I write about. I have loved meeting [in real life or not] other women with this disease, and the support group I have found online has saved me on more than one occasion.
Aside from the Army & the infertility, I do enjoy other things! I work full time in the communications/marketing field and love it. I love to cook. I own my own side photography business. All of these things you will hear about on my blog as well. I'm a born & raised hippy from Seattle & my flare for the creative & beautiful definitely comes through on my blog. I also love to travel & will take any excuse for my husband & I to jet away for a quick weekend vacation.
I look forward to meeting new people & I encourage you to come say hello!
