Hi there, lovely!

It’s Elizabeth here–wife to Zach (the handsome fella to my right), momma to our sweet baby girl “E”, and the gal behind the keyboard at Our Darling Adventure.

Welcome! I’m so excited you’ve decided to join me on my adventures as a military wife and first-time momma. My passion is helping wives of all stages strengthen their marriages and family life by sharing date ideas, advice & personal stories.

>>Want to Know More about Me?

Well you’re in the right place! I’m a New England girl married to a Montana guy who just happens to serve in the US Army. If you’re wondering how that all happened, I wrote about it here (coming soon). Zach and I have spent most of our five years of marriage living in Oahu, Hawaii but have recently relocated to Fort Drum in upstate New York. And yes, in answer to your question, that’s been a huge change for us!

Another huge change for us this past year?

The birth of our adorable daughter, known simply as “E” on the blog. Our sweet little girl is truly the apple of our eyes and, together with our dog Duke, we make a perfect little family of four.

>>All about the Blog

Our Darling Adventure started in 2013 under the name Army Ever After as a way to pass the time when I was a young newlywed out of her element. Through the years, it has grown and transformed but it remains the hobby I never knew I needed.  Through it, I rediscovered my love of writing and found my passion for encouraging other wives through the good, bad and in-betweens of family life.

As a blogger, you’re often told to market yourself as an expert. But I’m not.

Honestly, I’d consider myself quite a novice at all the topics I write about!

Instead this blog is full of my thoughts about marriage, motherhood and life in general, as well as a few tips and tricks I’m learning along the way.  My hope for Our Darling Adventure is to inspire you to strengthen your relationships and cultivate a life you love, no matter what stage of life you’re in!

>>What You Can Expect

Once upon a time, I had a set blogging schedule and time galore to write. Nowadays though my life revolves around diaper changes, naptime strikes and baby giggles so my blogging schedule is pretty much at the mercy of my little bundle of energy. I do try my best however to have 2 new posts ready for you every week.

I consider myself a lifestyle blogger so that’s what I write about here on Our Darling Adventure–my life.

Some of the topics I cover are:

  • Easy and fun Date Ideas (often including free printables for you to use)
  • Marriage lessons I’ve learned through the years
  • Thoughts on life as a new mom and all the changes that brings to the table
  • Sneak peaks into my life as a military spouse

And Much More.

So go ahead and grab a cup of coffee or tea (or if you’re like me, coke) and take a look around.  I’d love for us to connect on InstagramTwitterPinterestFacebookYoutube or by email at hello@ourdarlingadventure.com.

I’m so happy you’re here and I can’t wait to get to know you!
