Welcome to Jo, My Gosh! I'm Jo, and I'm so glad that you're here!

I began this blog when my husband (but then-fiance), John, deployed to Afghanistan for year. Primarily, I wanted to share the care packages I was creating and sending to him. I wanted to give a voice to the feelings and experiences I was having as someone who had never experienced the deployment of a loved one before.

The blog's focus expanded quickly from just care packages to DIYs, recipes, and the advice I wish someone had given me about being a military significant other.  I invite you to grab a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy yourself as you peruse Jo, My Gosh! Sit down and stay awhile!

If you're inspired by my blog, let me know at jomygosh [at] gmail [dot] com! I'd love to see what you're doing!
