Welcome to The Frugal Navy Wife.
WHO is The Frugal Navy Wife?
The Frugal Navy Wife is ME! I’m Danielle, I am the owner and the brains behind the site. We are just starting our journey to road school! I am in my late twenties and my husband and I have been married going on 8 years now. I am a wife, mom, homeschool teacher, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, book-worm, frugal money saver, gypsy at heart, former Navy wife, and breastfeeding mom. I love to read in what little spare time I have, but normally a hot bath and time to relax takes over before reading! I have 4 kids ages 6, 5, 2 and 11 months!
More about me. Let’s see, I never know what to say here! I grew up in Florida, lived in the same town my whole life, grew up on a farm until the time I was 13 until we moved into town. Once I turned 18 I busted out and have since lived in Ohio, Kentucky (and back to FL) Virginia then met hubby had my son, and moved to Maryland had 2 more girls and then in Pennsylvania where we had kid #4, a 3rd girl! “I’ve got a gypsy soul to blame and I was born for leaving….” (name that song!) Now we are traveling and calling FL our home base (where my parents are!)
Anyway it’s true I DO have a gypsy soul and I LOVE to travel. Hubby didn’t get to travel much outside his Navy traveling, and we want our kids to experience the United States so when the opportunity came to travel the USA in an RV and road school our kids after some thinking ( a short amount of thinking) we jumped on it.
Someday we will settle down on a farm with acreage in mountains in TN, unless we find something we like better in our travels!
To bring you the best travel info I have brought on another fellow traveler!
I’m a full-time traveler currently adventure traveling throughout Alaska, with a base in Anchorage! I’ve been a full-time traveler for over 2 years. In May 2013, I sold everything I owned, packed the rest up in my car and took off from Phoenix, Arizona. I drove all 4 corners of the US thru 38 states and ran 10 half marathons. I tent camped over 100 days staying in National and State parks, out in the wilderness, and even in a few friends’ backyards. Oh, and I tore my Achilles Tendon in a race in Portland and did most of that first year unable to walk. That’s me – Unstoppable: Girl On The Run.
I am a Wife, mom to 4 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, gypsy soul, and full time RVer, and Roadschool Family!
We have been on the road since August 2015, and loving travel and seeing new things! I am sharing our journey along the way!
