Attention All Mil Spouse Bloggers...Get Ready to Hop!



"Our service members and their families seldom ask for support or recognition. They carry out their duties to family and country with the quiet courage and strength that has always exemplified the American spirit. On Military Spouse Appreciation Day, we have an opportunity to not only honor the husbands and wives of our service members, but also thank them by actively expressing our gratitude in both word and deed."


Did you know that May is National Military Appreciation Month?  And did you know that this Friday is Military Spouse Appreciation Day?


In 1984 President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the Friday before Mother's Day to be Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Since then, that day is set aside to recognize the sacrifices of our country's military spouses. Military spouses may not wear a uniform, but we proudly serve our country in the silent ranks. And although we rarely ask for recognition or appreciation, it sure is nice to have a day dedicated to us.
 
 
 
In honor of Military Spouse Appreciation Day, my good friend Ann Marie over at Household 6 Diva and I are co-hosting a blog hop!!!  What better fun on a day that celebrates us than to gather us all together to party in the blogosphere. 



The 2012 Military Spouse Appreciation Day Blog Hop starts at 12 noon EST this Friday, May 11. 

On Wednesday I'll be posting a list of all the really cool sponsors and giveaways that are up for grabs.  If you're interested in sponsoring a prize, please contact me at ontherollercoaster{at}gmail{dot}com.


Thursday I'll post my introduction post to give you some ideas of what you should include in your party post. Remember to keep it short and sweet...we'll have lots of friends to visit!


And Friday is party day!

Don't forget to display the blog hop button somewhere in your sidebar or in your party post (click HERE to get the code). 

And yes, there is a Twitter hashtag: Milspousebloghop.

So start working on your introduction posts and get ready to start hopping on Friday!  Can't wait to meet and greet with all the other awesome mil spouse bloggers!
