New Kid on the Block

     It is with a good amount of trepidation that I enter the world of blogging. For my first post, I thought I would introduce myself and hope that I am at least interesting enough for you to keep reading. lol
I was born and raised in Louisana (Marrero to be exact).  I went to nursing school at Pensacola Christian College where I met my fabulous husband.  After our wedding, I transplanted to Misery.... Oops, I mean Missouri. Ok, it's not that bad, except for the food. I have two very energetic boys (ages 4 and 18months). I work full time as a Registered Nurse for an insurance company and as my blog title suggests, my husband is a police officer. 
Now that the formalities are over, I can get to the bloggy stuff......... I hope to share just a bit of life and make some friends along the way. 
I have been a police wife for six years now and one main trend that I have noticed is the rate of divorce among officers.  According to chacha.com,  Police divorce rate is 60-70% higher than the national average. I believe much of this is due to the nature of the job and the many hours that are dedicated to it while the spouse is left to deal with most of the daily rituals of family life.  Trust me!!! this does get really hard, but nothing worth having is easy.  So it is with much prayer, that I send my hubby out there to "battle" =) everyday and welcome him home each night at whatever time it maybe.  (I know what you are thinking right now and, no, I am by no means the perfect, happy, smiley wife all the time).  Much is made of the military wife (and rightly so) who sends her man off for months/years at a time, but I thought it might be interesting to put a perspective on the role of a police wife who sends her man out every day to serve and protect on the streets of your city.

Thanks for reading. Ya'll come back now, ya hear? =)
