Aiming High in 2012

This past year has brought a number of positive changes to my life and the life of my family, for which I am thankful!  I’m a few days late, but I had to share with you how far I’ve come – as a blogger, as an Airman, and as a milspouse.

January – My SrACarp2, my first semi-formal dress occasion in the Air Force.

April – I said goodbye to Henry, my ’07 Harley Davidson Street Bob, !  As a result, I started the “Enlisted and Expecting” series on the blog.  I also spent a majority of the month participating in my wing’s Operational Readiness Inspection (ORI).  I officially completed my CCAF degree this month, an Associate’s of Applied Science in Human Resource Management, although I will be recognized as an April 2013 graduate.

November – I submitted my package for the Deserving Airman Commissioning Program (DACP).  

December – I met the DACP board and was approved to attend Officer Training School (OTS)!  I also found out that I had an opportunity to work with our newly formed Development and Training Flight (D&TF).  I wrapped up the season like any good Airman elf – by tracking Santa for the second year in a row!

To say it’s been an eventful year is probably an understatement, but that’s typically the speed at which I work!  Always moving, always shaking.  2013 will, without a doubt, be even bigger and better with the birth of our first child!  Thank you all for your readership over the last year – I look forward to sharing more of my experiences with you in the coming days!
