Getting with the times

I thought I was up with all new technology but tonight my daughter talked me into joining Twitter. Not real sure on whether or not I will Tweet but getting the updates from some of my favorite websites might be beneficial. I guess if I want to stay on top of things I need to keep up with all the new technology options. So if you are on Twitter, look me up "aimeriana101"

My Military Collection

My First Blog

I am a Mom of 3 about to enter a new stage in my life with no kids left at home. My youngest daughter is in the middle of her Junior year in high school. My son is an Airman in the US Air Force and my older daughter is in her Junior year in college. Over the years I have been a Girl Scout leader, committee member for my son's Boy Scout troop, band parent, then I graduated to Band Booster Secretary and now President.

When my son entered the Air Force, I was drafted into a whole new world. Much of my life has taken on a new role. I actively look for ways to support our military. Less than a year ago, I found Soldiers' Angels. I have met some really great people who also are committed to supporting our military. Some of my closest friends are the Wingsisters and Wingbrothers I have met online in several of my support groups. 

Last fall, I found a website where an awesome lady, Eve, makes handbags using the fatigues of our servicemen and women. Military takes these fatigues and turns them into amazing handbags and other accessories for family and servicemen. The best part is that a portion of the proceeds goes back to organizations that support the military. This made so much sense to me that in December I joined her company.

You can see all about the handbags and other creations at and on Facebook at Lori for Military
