I’m Lauren Draper, ex-Army wife, new mama and registered nurse determined to enlighten fellow spouses on the crazy world we live in.
As a married 24-year-old and the mother to a puppy boy named Costello and a little man named Luca, I strive to balance my whirlwind of a life while still enjoying the little things.
When it comes to being a spouse, military or civilian, it’s all about being squared away – but don’t worry!
I’m here to:
- welcome you to the military spouse sisterhood!
- help you understand the terms, rules and craziness of the military lifestyle
- push you to create a home away from home – that’s extremely important to our soldiers!
- make the transition to civilian life
- & help you enjoy the little things in life
Shortly after my husband left for OSUT, I was instantly confused by this new world I was in. The military lifestyle is different than anything most of us have ever experienced. Yet, I hope that through this site, I can help you make the switch smoothly.
There are no longer any reasons to worry or be confused! I don’t want any more newbie military wives feeling overwhelmed like how I felt – so welcome and feel free to explore and ask questions!
I promise… to help enlighten fellow military wives by connecting them to the abundance of knowledge our military sisterhood has to make them a savvier woman, wife, mother and friend.
Need some help understanding something, but it’s not on the site? Have some information to share? Or want to work with me? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The Real Sweetheart comes from being our significant other’s love. Though thick and thin, we have vowed to be by our spouses – we are their “real sweetheart”!
