Hi there! Welcome to Candypo.com aka Candypolooza!
I’m Candy, mother of two boys, wife to my hubs of 17 years. I’m a writer, college student, wanna be fitness person- chef -entertainment critic and traveler. Seriously just lover of all things LIFE with family and a lot of fun. It’s a wonderful life, my friends.
Yes, we are a military family. We lead a bit of a nomadic lifestyle with the hubs job (thanks Army). It’s the only life our boys have known, but the hubs and I were civilians for five years prior to him coming back into the Army. Don’t get me wrong, we are enjoying every minute of it! We typically stay 2-3 years at each duty station. I’ll be teaching you all the lingo and jargon
We love to travel and get familiar with the areas around us- day and weekend trips are our favorites. I take lots of pics so plan on seeing pics of our travels. And you can get ideas of where you’ll visit when you hit up areas we have been to.
Check out my section on Texas, Florida, Georgia and soon I’ll add some Louisiana content. Check the Travel section on the front page for posts on where we’ve been! I like to share fun facts about where we’ve been, where we are and where we are headed! I always think it’s helpful to get an idea of where you are, so other families headed there can get an idea of their future home.
Have a question about where to go? Send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
