Hello, my name is Emma! I am an Air Force veteran, thyroid cancer fighter, and a momma to my furbaby Bison (He is a 13 year old dog I adopted in Italy when I was stationed there in 2007). I am happily married to my best friend Paul, a Navy veteran. We love to explore and go hiking and go to watch the sunset almost every day! We both lost our jobs due to our disabilities from the military but are truly blessed in so many ways. I am a native Angeleno from California, but have traveled and lived in many places. We are currently living in Marion (Southern Illinois) and look forward to our journey there meeting new people and exploring new places.

I love listening to anything Electronic/Trance music like Lindsey Sterling. Did you see her on Dancing with the Stars last season? = ) If it has to get me moving, laughing, and dancing I can listen to some Gap band, and just about anything that suits my mood!

I enjoy autobiographies and anything to do with history. I love a good cry or any thing that involves overcoming personal battles. I am currently reading a book on Non-Violent Communication (finished early July). Finished My Life by George R. Hensel. Currently reading Grieving Mindfully.
I love all things vintage, birds, Tupperware, tea pots, pyrex, and DRESSES! I use to own over 10 Emily & Fin Dresses but they stopped making my style so now I am buying whatever looks cute! Stripes, Dots, Flowers, & Stars! My current style crush is Zooey Deschanel. I love her style in New Girl and also on her own! Flats are my go to shoe as I feel so much pain in heels.
We finally have a TV again! (Update: We have CABLE TOO!)
How to Get Away with Murder
The Goldbergs (I'm an 80's child!)
My favorite channel is ID (Investigative Discovery) where we watch Lt. Kenda in the Homicide Hunter!
