About Heather Goffrier
… mom of a sweet 2-year-old girl, and wife to a hilarious and handsome Navy pilot. We have lived in the four corners of the country and have fully embraced the military lifestyle, even with the bumps and bruises it brings along the way.
In my pre-military life I was an elementary PE teacher and a high school basketball coach. I love health, sports and fitness… and also sitting on the couch with a book, watching movies, and chatting on social media.
I met my husband when we were set up by our parents. Crazy right? Our families were friends but we had never met each other. We were actually set up to email, because he was on deployment. We “virtually” hit it off right away and wrote daily, straight through the last 5 months of his deployment on the USS Ronald Reagan.
He returned from deployment and the day after Thanksgiving, 2008, we met AND had our first date. And the rest is history.
We got married in San Diego in January 2010, and 5 days later moved across the country to Rhode Island. Welcome to military life! LOL. After more cross-country moves and a couple years of trying to get pregnant with no luck, we were blessed with our little princess– she is our delight!
I started HappyFitNavyWife in 2012 to encourage other military spouses, girlfriends, and fiance’s through the ins and outs of this challenging lifestyle. Now I also share parenting stories, mommy life tips that I’m learning along the way, and our journey of infertility.
I also created a free download called the “Top 10 Homecoming Do’s & Don’ts List,” which is my gift to you for visiting today! Grab your copy here.
Military life isn’t easy but it’s worth it to be with the ones we love. I hope my stories, tips and experiences can help you along the way. Thanks so much for stopping by!
ps- If you have a homecoming approaching, you don’t want to miss this list!
