All About Me

Oh I am awful at these.

My name is Rebecca, I am a wife, a mom, an environmentalist, a lover of travel, amateur photographer and voracious reader.

I am also sarcastic, one of the biggest procrastinators I know, and have a deep and abiding love for moscato and amaretto (but not together, because, ew.) The older I get the worse my social anxiety gets but most people would never guess because I tend to come off super outgoing, fake it ’till you make it ladies.

Oh yeah, my husband of *counting fingers* 12 years is in the Navy. Because of that I have gotten to fulfill my desire to travel the world, take pictures like the faux-tographer that I am. Also I get to tell people all about the super awesome places we get to live (shout out to Rota, Spain and Honolulu!).

Notice not one of those things I mentioned was writer. This does not come naturally to me. I try to write my posts in a way that I would talk to a friend so I hope it makes you want to sit down and listen.

Also I love to answer questions people have about living in Spain or Hawaii, send them my way!

  2. Hello! My name is Kristina and I am the blogger behind My Traveling Troop. I launched the blog to help military families who move, live and travel around the world. I try to do this by sharing my own family’s experience at different duty stations around the world, as well as by providing a forum for other military families to share their experiences and tips too.

    I’d be honored to interview you about your experience and tips about living in Rota. If you’re interested, feel free to email me at Below are examples of other spouses I’ve interviewed.

    Thank you for your time and consideration! I look forward to hearing from you! And enjoy the rest of your time in Spain!

  3. Hooyah Reb! We are a Navy family in Okinawa. Been stationed all over too… was in Egypt… Italy, Turkey and Mainland Japan besides Okinawa. Keep the faith and stay strong.

  4. Thank you for taking care of the family while your husband is deployed. I appreciate his service and applauded you.

    FYI: I was looking at military blogs and came across the picture of your son with the flowers. I paused and started at the photo for about 10 seconds before I could determine that he is not my son. It is unbelievable the resemblance. I will forward this to my wife but they look like twins.

    Full disclosure: My son is adopted so everyone is in the clear. There are no photos of him on my blog but you are alwasy welcome to stop in.

  5. My husband spent a lot of time in Rota and we raised three babies in Hawaii. Hang in there, Pearl Harbor is a great place for families! Best beach for kids…Ko Olina! And make sure and go to the zoo in downtown. Great cheap fun for kids.

  6. Thanks for sharing! I’ve enjoyed reading your posts and especially appreciate all that you shared about your time in Rota. We recently found out we will be heading there in the near future and with everything you’ve written about your time there, we really look forward to the experience!

    • Enjoy! It is a wonderful place to live, just go in with an open mind and with the knowledge that you are NOT in America! I miss it every day!

      • Thanks! It’ll be our first overseas PCS, but we’ve always wanted to travel to Europe and are excited for the opportunity–as much of a surprise as it was. Used to it by now I guess. And you did it with 2 kids! That’s reassuring as a new mom.

  7. Hi Reb! I had a question for you about possibly collaborating on something and was hoping you could email me back to discuss? Thanks so much!

  8. Hi Reb! My fiance is being transferred to Pearl and we will be moving in the Spring. He is currently on shore duty in Charleston, SC. We are really excited and looking forward to it. Following you now!


Don't just be a stalker (like me) say hi!
