Once upon a time I was a college student working hard day in and day out to be a big shot costume designer. But my goal was to own my own lingerie line. Yes you read that right, I wanted to design undies. My roomie, Lena and I talked and dreamed about moving to LA and working on movies and tv shows while designing our own clothing lines. One day we would open our own boutique. We were going to be awesome and live fab lives.
I met Sohel when I was 19. He was 21 and already in the Marine Corps. I knew he was for me. Fast forward 9 years (almost), 2 kids later and a few ups and down with the military vs. civilian life here I am. A stay at home mom who very rarely uses her sewing machine. Who thinks about LA sometimes but loves being with my kids playing dinosaurs or racing cars.
Lately I have been dusting my sewing machine and it feels good. I'm slowly gaining a little bit of Lindsey back that has been hiding under pregnancies, children and moves. I have realized that I don't have to lose myself to be a military spouse. I can have it all. I just need to work hard, set goals and I can achieve what I want. It may not be boutique in LA but it can be boutique on etsy.com or in Overland Park, KS (that one is for you hubby ;0) ).
thanks for reading :)
