Hey! I'm Dannielle
Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to get to know me a little bit more.
My husband and I, and our four kids, are currently stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. We have been here for the last 2 years now and still have around 2 years left. We have been married going on 9 years and this is the 4th place the Army has sent us. I think for our next PCS we are dreaming of beaches and warm weather! I guess we will just have to see what the Army has planned, right?
Here are just a few more things about me that you may not know.
I'm a military brat myself, I then joined the Army after high school and then met my husband in the Army!
I am a mom to three boys and one girl.
Because of all of the moving I've done in my life it's really hard for me to stay in one place for too long. I start to get antsy and feel the need to move houses or cities or states after about 2-3 years of being somewhere.
I think coffee should always be served on ice.
I'm a lover of any and all types of music. I can get down with the best country songs and then skip a few songs on my play list and rap right along with the best of the rap artists.
I love to support small handmade shops and most of our daughters toys and clothes come from those shops.
I have been breast feeding for the last 5 years straight and may or may not be feeling 100% touched out and over it.
Barefoot should just be a thing, why do we even have shoes?
I'm a huge minimalist, we don't even own a tv....I know, we are basically like aliens or something right?!
My oldest son is autistic/non verbal with SPD and he's one of the most amazing kids I have ever met.
I believe women can birth however and wherever they want. You should always have a say in your birth.
I have had 2 hospitals births and 2 home births myself. One of those home births was with a midwife present and the other was a planned unassisted home birth.
I believe women are strong, brave and know their bodies best over anyone else. I have had a free birth and trusted my body completely. I believe that all women are able to do this and that they choose which birth option is best for them based on that.
Feel free to read more about my Unassisted/Free Birth here.
Tattoos make me happy and I am covered in them.
I know how to crochet, knit and sew but don't do any of them much these days.
I'm a free spirit, live each day as it comes, kind of person.
