I just wanted to introduce myself and give you a little info on who I am and what I’m all about.
I am Liane, aka The Traveling Entree, a Coast Guard wife, cat and dog mom, lover of food, travel and adventures.
I am originally from Orange County, CA, a little town called Los Alamitos, but am currently residing in a little coastal town in Oregon called Coos Bay, where I have lived with my husband for the last 3 years. Moving for me was EXTREMELY difficult. As my mom’s only child, we are really close, and my grandmother had just been diagnosed with colon cancer and I was finally on good terms with my dad after years and years of fighting and not talking. So when I moved out here, I got extremely depressed, and even though I was with my boyfriend, Josh (who is now my husband) and he made me happy, I really struggled.
But, I got past it, we got engaged and then married 6 months after that. And even though it was a “budget wedding” (we spent barely over $8,000 including the honeymoon), it was pretty amazing, in my opinion. We now have been married for just shy of two years, we have a beautiful little boy, who will be two in January, and a happy little blue house up on a hill. It is more than I could have ever asked for. Oh and, hey, by the way, when I say little boy, I’m really just talking about our German Sheppard Pup, Koda. Hah! No kids for us for a little while! Sorry Mom!
Right now we are awaiting the list so Josh can put in his “Dream Sheet” for where we want to move to next. If you pray, please pray for Savannah, GA for us! If you don’t, that’s totally fine, just keep good thoughts for us! It’s a little scary being a military family, not having a full choice where you move to, the slim pickings, but there are so man benefits to it as well. you get to meet all kinds of new people, experience different states, new jobs, friends and the chances of you ending up in the same place as someone you met at another station are pretty good! The Coast Guard seems to be a pretty close group of people and I feel like some of the women I’ve met in the last couple years are people that I would definitely keep in touch with!
I’m hoping that by starting this blog, I’ll get to meet other military wives, or not even just wives, but spouses, and significant others in general! I want to hear their stories and be able to share mine. I want to share the amazing recipes I make and find with my readers, and who knows, maybe I’ll inspire someone to do something different and experience something new! I want to share my experiences and travels with others and hear their stories and how they got to where they are now.
With that being said, please don’t ever hesitate to email me or comment below! I would love to hear your story!
