Who I am

Hi, thanks for visiting this blog! My name is Elizabeth Peterson.  I married the love of my life in December 2010 and we have since begun the journey of making our home wherever life and the navy send us!  Hopefully this blog will follow us wherever we end up–just as long as I update it regularly!  We’re expecting our first baby in April 2012, and we’re sooooo excited to be parents.  Children are such an amazing gift from God!  I’m constantly amazed by the wonder of life growing inside me… and literally kicking me in the ribs!
We are Christians, and believe that we are truly “saved by grace, through faith, and not by works lest any man should boast.”   We’re also extremely politically conservative.  If you follow my blog, you’ll probably hear a lot about my opinions.  If you have a problem with capitalism, democracy or free trade this is not the blog to read.  As a country, we need to return to the original values and game plan of the founding fathers.  The national debt is atrocious, and for all our talking, we’re no longer the leading nation in the world–and that should appall Americans.  I support extreme downsizing of the government, and cutting of all social programs.  Social programs breed socialism, and America has never been about handouts.  You live here because you want to make your own way.  End of story.

I love history, music, writing, historical fashion, politics, reading, snorkeling, scuba-diving, cooking for my man… okay, well, the list could go on.  You’ll hear alot more about it all that through this blog!  Thanks again for reading, and I hope you enjoy getting to know my family and me through this blog!

    I didn’t grow up around a military life at all, but after marrying a sailor but soon came to realize, Dave was home to me. Anywhere he was is where I wanted to be, or as close to him as I could get. Being with him was all that mattered.

    My dad was a Navy man, and one stepbrother. I learned that home is wherever I set down my bag. These days, wherever I set down my computer. 🙂
