About Me


Hey there! Welcome to my blog. I’m sure you’re wondering what this blog is about and who I am. Well, here is a little bit about me and what I want to tell you…

My name is Erin Byal, I am a 24 year old military spouse. I grew up in a small town in Iowa with 3 older siblings, parents, and many animals. My immediate family of 6 has now grown to 19 people, half of those people are children. I moved to Lincoln, Nebraska in 2013 halfway through my college career. That is where I met my amazing husband, Brendan.

July 1st, 2015 Brendan took me for a picnic at my favorite spot and asked me to marry him, and I said yes! On January 30th, 2016 we were married and it was the best wedding of all time. Four months after we got married we moved to Stafford, Virginia. After being there for 6 months we moved to Pensacola, FL! Now my husband is at flight school studying to become an NFO (Naval Flight Officer) in the Marine Corps. So proud of him!

So here we are, I’ve now created this blog for all to see the journey we are on. Being a military spouse is definitely not easy, but with the support of my family, my husband and my faith in God we will make Life Through The Journey all worth it. Thanks for stopping by!
