About Me


I am Anni!  

Welcome to my blog.

I am a proud Army wife, and social-worker turned  Catholic mommy blogger.

I am a cradle Catholic, who spent time exploring various other religions, and reverted back to my Catholic faith in the past few years.

Studying history has always been a passion of mine, which prompted me to complete a BA in History. I then went on to pursue, and earn, my Masters of Social Work (MSW). I have thousands of clinical hours under my belt, and have worked closely with combat veterans and their families to provide readjustment counseling. In addition to counseling the aforementioned groups, I have also worked with children (ages birth-18) and their families both to reunify families and to provide behavioral counseling and developmental counseling.

I blog about my faith, parenting as it pertains to my family and my professional experience, and our adventures wherever the Army sends our family!

You can follow me on Facebook at A Beautiful, Camouflaged Mess of A Life. I am also on Instagram at @Beautifulcamouflagedmess, and occasionally tweet at @BeautifulCamoMe.

  1. Nice to meet you. I’m going through it currently in life. Yes it is very true. Some sites like yours I find peaceful

  2. Your dogs are beautiful. I have six of them. I live out in the country and we get drop offs all the time. Mostly pregnant ones. I cannot watch them starve, or can I kill them. As my husband always says, “They see sucker all across your forehead. That is why they always end up in our driveway.” I told him, “Don’t make me choose your gonna lose.” 🙂 God Bless, SR

    1. I am pretty sure if we didn’t move as much as we do, we may have a few more. 😉 Military installations are picky, and only allow us to have “up to two” pets. It drastically limits my ability to have more!

      What a beautiful blessing you bestow on so many of God’s beautiful creatures. We’re dog people in our house, so we would definitely love to bring all of them home! Maybe someday…
