Friday, May 11, was Military Spouse Appreciation Day. A day dedicated to those – us - who serve alongside our military heroes, without wearing a uniform making tremendous sacrifices for this nation. Military spouses bravely jump to the unknown when moving from one duty station to another by packing their careers and leaving the old friends behind, they keep their chin up through deployments, they treasure the memory of fallen heroes.
If you are a fellow military spouse, thank you for your service and dedication for this country. If you are not a military spouse but know one, give her a hug and say thank you – she will appreciate it a lot more than you could ever believe.
As a way to honor Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Household 6 Diva and Wife on the Roller Coaster are hosting a Blog Hop, virtual meet&greet for Military Spouses and alike – make sure you join the fun if you are not stopping by here through the Blog Hop!
And then to a brief introduction. First of all, welcome to Adventures of The K Family!
I am Nina, an Army wife, and married to Jason, an active duty Army officer who has served this nation for over a decade… We are stationed at Ft. Richardson, Alaska, aka The Last Frontier. I was born in Finland, my career in the HiTech industry has taken me all over the world from Alaska to Australia… in addition to the work my life is filled with studying – working towards PhD in neurosciences, traveling, sports and fitness as I am an avid runner, Crossfitter, and triathlete. Photography is also one of my passions, and I have had my own lifestyle, nature and wildlife photography business since 2005.
We don’t have any children, so not a surprise that our 6-year-old beagle, Tassu (means a “paw” in Finnish) is our way too spoiled baby. He was my dog in the very beginning but after Jason came to our life…. well, I kinda lost the dog. He and the hubby are best buddies. Ever.
Adventures of The K Family is a blog about our active lifestyle, adventures, travels, as well as every once in a while I love to write about my
nerdiness research projects, or comment on current events. I hope you enjoy your visit, and look forward to seeing you around!
