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 25 year old military spouse. I grew up in a small town in Iowa with 3 older siblings, parents, and many animals. 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 in flight school studying to become a NFO (Naval Flight Officer) in the Marine Corps, very proud of him! And we have a golden retriever puppy that I begged for so long to get, so life is good.

I write about marriage, dogs, food, meal planning, and living as a military spouse.

I’ve 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!
