#2 The Pearl & the Pilot

CaitlinCaitlin’s blog, The Pearl & the Pilot began as a way for their families to keep up with their crazy military life, since her husband spent 320 days a year flying all over the world. Blogging has turned into the second love of her life, where she writes about how she makes their home healthier and greener. Caitlin’s husband is a C-17 instructor pilot, T-6 instructor pilot, and soon-to-be airline pilot. They have a toddler, Matthew (18 months), and two yellow labs, Moose and Chewie, who she wants to keep her home and safe for.

Caitlin loves to write about her military lifestyle (and now about getting out of the military, after being in the Air Force her entire adult life) as well as making all of their food from scratch, using essential oils, and keeping the technology at a minimum for now with her son. She likes to think of herself as an amateur chef, who also loves photography as a hobby.
