Sierra Redmond is the 22- year- old Mom and Army Wife behind The Daily Impressions Lifestyle Blog. The Daily Impressions was created in 2017 to encourage the building of stronger family units through travel and experiences. Sierra went to college for Broadcast Journalism TV/Radio and Media and was set on being a correspondent.
In 2014, she married her high school sweetheart turned US Army Soldier and knew that it would change her life. After getting married and moving to Fort Leonard Wood, MO, she realized how impossible it was going to be to work in media the way that she intended. That’s when she discovered blogging. She found a fulfilling career that allowed her to support her husband’s career and be a stay at home mom to her son. She hopes that her website encourages military families to travel more often, draw closer together to build strong families and make the most out of their military experiences. She is currently serving as the Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year base winner for USAG Miami and uses her platform to show Military wives everywhere that they can live their best lives.
1. HJ: How long have you been married as a military spouse?
SR: We have been married for 4 years this coming December but together for 8 years in total. He was in the military almost 2 years before we finally got married. I love that we have been together for so long because we really went through growing up and growing pains together and I believe that it made our marriage stronger (SR).
2. HJ:What are 3 things that you both do to make happiness last in your marriage?
SR: Marriage is tough business so we work hard to not be statistics and keep our marriage healthy and happy. Number one in our lives is God. God and religion is our foundation first and foremost and with that marriage can conquer anything. Second is communication. We know how important it is to talk about whatever issues we have especially because we are a military family. He comes right home and tells me what’s going on in his career and life and how it may affect us and vice versa. Third is partnership. We make sure that we support and cheer each other on and have a lot of experiences together. We genuinely want to see each other win!
3. HJ:What are the top 5 activities your family do?
SR: My family loves to travel and it was really the inspiration for the start of my blog. Aside from traveling we spend time in church together as well as studying the bible at home. We love having family movie night as often as we can. We volunteer our time in the community and with our church family. Lastly, we make sure that we have dinner together. Sometimes my husband works overnight but we make sure to have at least one or two meals a day together.
4. HJ:What’s the perfect date night for you and your husband?
SR: My son is super young so we don’t get a lot of date nights. However, I would say that our most fun date night since our son was born was the time we went to Top Golf. Although movies are fun, we love dates that involve an activity and competitiveness. Top Golf was perfect because we had fun competing against each other and we also had dinner all in one location. We have also gone to a paint and sip and that was the same thing. It was a competitive and fun activity.
