Side blog. I come from a military family, but it's all different being in a relationship with someone in the military. I never expected or wanted to be in a relationship with someone who serves, but now that I am, I'm trying to cope the best I can.

Sending care packages overseas? Here’s a little how-to-do so you won’t let customs forms intimidate you. Also, definitely ask the post office staff questions if you’re not sure. There’s about room for 4 items to list and so I usually list the basic things like books, beef jerky, baby wipes, and gum. Keep it simple and a tip given to me is to not list the expensive items, just to make sure that your care package isn’t tampered with.
