Swell Time

Moving forward, just not sure where we're going, but at least we're having a swell time when we do it.

March’s Coast Guard Mom- Kelly Johnston

Today via facetime I got to interview our March mom Kelly Johnston. Her family is currently stationed in Florida and they are getting ready for a transfer season. She shares with us some of her challenges and gives great advice for finding balance in managing family and career.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kelly when I was in Florida. We are both runners and we got to share our love of running most recently at the Walt Disney World Princess Half Marathon.

    Sometimes I don’t know how families get by when both parents are service members. Kelly is right on – no matter if your a service family or a civilian family – there has to be a line of open communication and a CONSTANT one! And if one of them is on the road a lot, or deployed, or at sea for a length of time, patience. I’m glad Kelly has patience.
