Army Pants and Flip Flops

I’m Aileen: a soon-to-be army wife from a family of liberal Jews, whose biggest fears include firearms and accidentally falling in love with republicans. I’m facing my fears head-on, armed with a lot of anxiety, a lot of humility, and a lot of hope.

Also with Gouda. A lot of Gouda.

My fiance, Jonathan, is on his second tour in Afghanistan while I hang out in the Washington, DC area, planning our wedding, crafting care packages, and generally trying not to kill myself doing either of those things. This blog is a chronicle of my coping mechanisms, and my journey as I wait for Jonathan to come home, and for my life as an army wife to begin.
