We are celebrating our youngest’s first birthday this weekend. I am the least Pinterest-y mom out there, so I wanted to share my handwork 😂

After 868 days in command, today I finally passed the guidon on to my replacement. It has been a pleasure and I will be forever grateful for this experience.

Thanks @iamamandajoy for introducing me to the amazing @curves official gear. It just so happens I’m breaking in a pair of new boots on the treadmill this evening! 🤞🏻 I can do this in a new pair of EMERALD GREEN leggings!

The first time my son saw the Christmas tree all lit up all he could say was “Wow...” It’s so cool watching him experience the joys of this season. What you can’t tell is all the breakable ornaments are at the top of the tree above toddler height 😂

In recognition of the @usmarinecorps birthday, we are remembering #usmcfinestmoments One of mine came just days after one of the worst of my entire life. I had the honor and privilege of flying the remains of my friend, Capt Jeff Kuss, USMC, down the beachline of Pensacola, FL for one last formation flight with his wingman Lt Ryan Chamberlain, USN. Happy Birthday Marines for those still with us in this life and the next. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Best little road tripper...(I know I post a lot of pictures of my dog but I don’t feel comfortable posting pictures of my son on Instagram but I wanted all of you to see the other sides of my life outside of flying and the USMC ). I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season. #dalsofinstagram

@georgewbush , my husband, @dustyleecook , is a huge fan so when I played this hand in @cards_against_humanity_ he made me promise to put it on instagram. Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving. Ps I once wrote a paper about your mom in the fourth grade. I thought her pearls were the bomb.

This time last year we were in Vegas getting ready for our wedding. I couldn’t ask for a better partner.

#TBT to the best day of my life (tied with the day our son was born ). This man is my perfect match. He tells me every day he loves me, I’m his best friend and his soulmate. He’s an amazing daddy and dotes on our son. He is a great leader and his Marines respect the hell out of him. He makes my amazing life possible. I love you! #cheesy 😍😍😍

My heart is thoroughly broken with the loss of Yankee 72. KC-130s with their four engines (technically five with the APU ), three hydraulic systems, 6+ radios, multiple crossfeed capable fuel tanks, and multiple person aircrew have so many redundant systems it lulls you into the idea that it won't happen to our community. Unfortunately for us, it did. The 16 service members, some of them friends, will now and forever be our steadfast wingmen both in the air and throughout our daily lives. Keep these brave men and their families in your thoughts and prayers. Should my end come while I am in flight, Whether brightest day or darkest night; Spare me your pity and shrug off the pain, Secure in the knowledge that I'd do it again; ...For each of us is created to die, And within me I know, I was born to fly. — Gary Claud Stokor
