Is this thing on?

Hello! Welcome to my new blog, That Pilot’s Wife. In the seven years I have been married to my husband (as well as the 12 years we’ve been together), he has been a pilot in some capacity. For the past two years, he has flown for the airlines.

The moment someone finds out I am married to a pilot, I can predict with almost 100% certainty the next question they will ask is, “What’s it like to be married to a pilot?”

That question is really impossible to answer. I usually end up responding with something eloquent like, “Oh, you know, interesting.”

So, I decided to blog about it. I hope this blog will shed a better life on what it’s like to be an aviation spouse.

In addition to being a pilot wife, I am also a mama to a beautiful five and half year old girl named Amelia, a dog mom to a crazy Basenji-Jack Russell mix named Loki, a runner, a triathlete, a personal trainer, a health and fitness nut, and we are also trying to add another beautiful baby to our family. This blog will also cover a lot of these things and many more.

Aviation colors our life totally, and the intersection of it and everything else is sometimes messy, usually chaotic, but always worth it.

Welcome to our weird and wonderful world.
