About Delta Whiskey
After 28 years on this great earth I think I’ve come close to figuring out what is essential and important in life.
Quite simply: I want to be the best wife I can for The Husband. I want to support and encourage other military wives to live life to the fullest.
Born and raised in Kansas City, MO, I hold dear to my Midwest conservative values and Christian upbringing. My father and brother are both Marines who taught me at a young age the dedication and sacrifice needed to faithfully serve this country. This life isn’t for everyone.
In January 2003 I married a blond haired, blue eyed man who turned my world upside down and continues to make my heart skip a beat. The Husband wears a uniform for the United States Air Force. I couldn’t be more supportive or proud of his dedication to this country.
Before I wed my lovely husband, I couldn’t cook at all. In fact, I was such a horrid cook that I burned water on a consistent basis. The problem? I had this crazy June Cleaver image of what my life was going to be like as a married woman. We would eat delicious homemade meals every night by candlelight, the house would be immaculate, the birds would chirp outside as we dined for hours over a bottle of wine.
Then reality hit.
I started fumbling my way through cookbooks on the second day I was a “Mrs” and never looked back. We’ve never had a candlelit dinner and hardly ever enjoy a bottle of wine over dinner. Such is life with a military man.
Since June Cleaver had to permanently PCS from my life, I’ve adapted to being a modern day June Cleaver. That means making homemade healthy and delicious meals, keeping a super-organized home, and loving the few moments the Air Force allows me to share with my husband.
The Husband has been deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom I & II war campaigns. I have waited patiently and lovingly for his return during each deployment.
Delta Whiskey is my nickname at home and on the flight line. I “adopt” airmen and soldiers that are away from their families by having special dinners for them, counseling them on “women problems” (my personal favorite) and encouraging their careers. Lovingly referred to as Da Wife by both the husband and various flight line personnel, DW in phonetic code is Delta Whiskey.
