Hey Y’all! My name is Cayte and I share my stories of everyday life as a Minor League Baseball Wife at Blog With The Browns. It’s a crazy life, but one that I wouldn’t trade for anything! This 5’2 shorty is a newlywed to my 6’6 baseball player, D.J. We got married on September 28, 2013 in Norfolk, VA in the presence of 200 of our closest friends and family.
My life as a professional athlete’s spouse has really drawn me into reading Kym’s blog! Although probably different, I can imagine life as a hockey wife would be similar in ways to the life we live. During season we are always trying to fix dinner around game time, communicate with family across multiple time zones, and attempt to make sense of where we are in the world this season. Kym said it best in a post a few weeks ago.. “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of living and knowing people in more than one place.”
Unlike Kym, I don’t travel with my husband. This allows me to be close to family, have a stable job, pay the bills, do the housework and even (with the help of my parents) play mommy to our sweet yellow lab, Stryker. Since I am home during the season, I figure I would start checking a few of the long-term to-do’s off my list this baseball season. One of the big things I wanted to accomplish was making something that showed all of our locations with baseball and where we have been over the years. So you know the “Home is Where The Navy Sends Us” signs?! Well I decided to turn this into “Home is Where Baseball Sends Us” and tailor it to our life! Since posting, I have had so many people interested in buying one for themselves that I have turned this into a fun hobby that allows me to make some extra cash to use on gas to visit my man! I have made signs so far for six different families and I can feel the love and the stories that each one will remind these families of!
I would love to help share your story in your home by making you a “Home is where Hockey Sends Us” or any other sport, armed services, or life in general! The signs are very afforabale, all hand made, and completely custom designed to fit your needs! If you are interested, please email me at merrymce [at] gmail [dot] com and we can get something working!
Thanks for taking a few minutes out of your day to learn more about me and my “Home Is Where ______ Sends Us” signs!
