I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the lovely ladies that have swapped with me. Many thanks to all of you, especially those of you who swapped with me in my really-early baby stages of blogging. Check them out because I love all their blogs! And if you're interested in swapping with me, send me an email. I love to swap!

We are Van and Kristina.  I, Kristina, am typically the voice on this blog, but occasionally Van will grace us with his presence.  :) 

I'm Kaylee from All Things Bright and Beautiful. My blog is completely random and I guess qualifies as a lifestyle blog. It's mostly about me and my life as a newlywed (my husband's name really is King, so I reference "the King and I" A LOT). Stop on by and let's get to know each other! I guarantee you'll love it, or your money back.
Three Facts:
 I design blogs on the cheap. I once caught a gator and skinned it (hey, I'm from Florida). I also can never think of fun facts about myself when asked, but when I'm driving around in the car or showering, the fun facts ALWAYS come to me (this is a fun fact).

Hello! I'm Kaitlyn and I blog over at Wifessionals. I'm a 20-something newlywed who just got married this past June. I was blessed to find the love of my life, however I never expected to find myself in the life I now lead. My husband, Ryan, is an officer in the Army. A week after our wedding, we packed up our entire life and moved to Arizona. Now, just 4 short months later, we moved to Colorado! This is a crazy, unpredictable life we now lead, but I love it. I absolutely adore my blog and all of the amazing ladies it has allowed me to meet (: If you stop by, you'll find everything from delicious recipes, the ups and downs of military life, DIY projects, the joys of being a newlywed and so much more. I'd love for you to come and say hello!

 I coined the word Wifessionals - I don't know how I made it up, but one day I did and I googled it and there was not one use of it on the internet! (It's confessions of beings a wife - wifessionals!)
